The second annual FA Disability Cup Finals Day intensifies this month with a series of events looking ahead to the showpiece day at St George’s Park on Saturday 6th May.
With a world-class backdrop, the country’s largest football event of its kind will feature domestic disability finals in Powerchair, Blind and Cerebral Palsy football. Additionally for this year, finals will be contested in Amputee and Deaf football.
The FA Disability Cup ensures that players within impairment-specific football have a national FA competition which they can take part in with dreams of reaching St. George’s Park for finals day.
It is a fantastic opportunity to celebrate the achievements of the players, coaches and volunteers involved in partner competitions, and provides a platform for raising awareness of the opportunities that exist for everyone within disability football.
Director of National Game and Participation, Kelly Simmons, said: “Following the success of last year’s inaugural FA Disability Cup, we are all looking forward to another successful event.
“We remain committed to ensuring this is a landmark day to look forward to on the football calendar each year.”
The CP Sport National Cerebral Palsy Football League consists of a north conference and a south conference, with a total of nine adult teams for the 2016-17 season. The teams take part in regional central-venue fixtures throughout the year and then teams from both conferences come together for the national cup competition in April. The winners of the north and south conferences qualify to play at St. George’s Park as part of The FA Disability Cup finals day. Find out more about the league here.
