Action in the B1 League for blind football

Disability

From grassroots to the elite game, whether you're a coach or a player,  here is how you can take part in disability football

Inclusive Football For All

The beautiful game has no boundaries

There has never been a better time to get involved and play football, whatever your ability level. There are now more opportunities than ever to play football if you have a disability.

Hampshire FA believe in flexible, inclusive and accessible playing opportunities for everyone, and are committed to delivering a range of opportunities for players with a disability to access football at various levels across the county. 

Disability football within Hampshire is continually evolving with lots of opportunities available to all who wish to be involved in the game. Hampshire FA’s aim is to retain existing provision and then develop opportunities in other areas of Hampshire to make disability football accessible to all.

FAQS

Yes there is; a county inclusive football forum has been established with members including the County FA, County Sports Partnership, education including schools, colleges and universities, local authorities, Premier League and Football League Trusts and Foundations, LIDL FA Skills Coaches, FA Coach Mentors and FA Charter Standard Clubs and Leagues. The purpose of this network is to have a joined up approach in delivery of disability football within Hampshire, identifying and signposting talented players (12-16 year olds) through The FA's Disability Pathway. In addition it will identify and support coaches. For more information please go to Hampshire FA Talent Identification Programme (TIP) or contact James Medder.

Yes, the Saints Foundation Pan-Disability league offers players and teams the opportunity to play competitively. 

Clubs within the League each run their own festival fixture open to all other clubs offering competition for both youth and adults. Hampshire FA then host fixtures during the winter months to add to the fixture programme.
