What is the FA Disability cup?
The FA Disability Cup is entering into its fourth year and is the largest competition of its kind in the country, ensuring that players within impairment-specific football have a national FA competition to call their own, complete with dreams of reaching the finals weekend.
The FA Disability Cup will return to St George’s Park on Saturday 15 and Sunday 16 June 2019 and there are five cup finals scheduled to take place across the weekend delivered in partnership with a range of impairment-specific organisations.
Specifically, The FA will be hosting the:
- Amputee cup final in partnership with England Amputee Football Association,
- Blind cup final in partnership with the National Blind Football League
- Cerebral Palsy cup final in partnership with CP Sport
- Partially Sighted cup final in partnership with the National Partially Sighted Football League
- Powerchair cup final in partnership with the Wheelchair Football Association.
This year’s event will also play host to the exhibition of a new format of 2v2 blind football which we are developing as a beginner friendly-format of the standard 5v5 format currently adopted within blind football.
It is our ambition that The FA Disability Cup Finals weekend will become a key date in the football calendar, with St. George’s Park providing a world-class backdrop for the culmination of each partner competition’s cup final.
