Working with County Football Associations, County Sport Partnerships and local Charter Standard Football Clubs, CP Sport have developed excellent partnerships in several regions across England and Wales, which will continue as the programme develops. Click here for further information on the regular sessions available.

Cerebral Palsy Football creates a fairer game of football for players with a physical disability. In the majority of cases the reason people do not play ambulant cerebral palsy football is because they can’t find enough players to make a team, and resort to pan disability football as the only other option. If you want to play grass roots cerebral palsy football, contact our charity and help us to build a larger pool of players and teams so that players can have more regular impairment specific football.

CP Sport give players the opportunity to develop individual skills within a team environment, encased in an impairment specific competitive structure. Furthermore the football programme contributes to the development of the Football Association/England Cerebral Palsy Regional and National Squads, through talent identification and our goal is to sign post players to the performance pathway for talented performers, and also to provide participation opportunities for players of all abilities.
