World’s first para-football association
The Scottish Football Association (SFA) is to create the world’s first affiliated national association dedicated to para-football. Following an investment of more than £100,000 from the SFA, the Scottish Para-Football Association will empower individual para-football associations to run their game according to their own wishes.
The Scottish Para-Football Association will include different associations governing a variety of types of para-football, including amputee football, cerebral palsy football, deaf football, frame football, learning disability football, mental health football, powerchair football and visual impairment football. It will provide sustainability for the individual associations, recognising the demands placed on their volunteers and allowing them to grow at a speed suitable to their own needs.
