National Cerebral Palsy Football League 2020-2021

___________________________________________________________________

The National Cerebral Palsy Football League has been called null and void for the 2020-2021 due to Covid 19.
The League committee are currently looking at opportunities for events in the summer 2021 and preparing for the 2021-2022 season.

The FA Disability Cup will be going ahead on Saturday 17th and Sunday 18th July 2021. From the National CP League, CP North West (FA Disability Cup holders) and North East and Yorkshire CP (National CP Cup winners 2020) will be participating.


CP Sport have been supporting the league committee during lockdown to work towards Charter Standard Accreditation which has now been awarded to the league.

A new classification committee has been created to oversee the transition across to a new classification system FT1-FT4. Initial plans were put on hold to carry out classifications, however the lead classifiers held a webinar for team coaches, referees and volunteers supporting the league to give an overview of the process for classifying players to participate in the CP League.

A Referee workshop was held to provide support to current and new league officials involved with the league. Further sessions are planned ahead of the 2021-2022 season.
