Disability Cup Final- Blind Football

FA Disability Cup

The Road to St George's Park.

It is our ambition that The FA Disability Cup Finals day 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.

2016-17 saw St. George’s Park host five cup finals on Saturday 6 May:

  • Amputee cup final (adult male) in partnership with England Amputee Football Association
  • Blind cup final (adult male) in partnership with the National Blind Football League
  • Cerebral palsy cup final (adult male) in partnership with CP Sport
  • Deaf cup final (U18 female) in partnership with English Schools Football Association
  • Powerchair cup final (adult mixed-gender) in partnership with the Wheelchair Football Association

Hertfordshire based Aspire PFC had great success this year in the FA Disability Cup claiming victory in the Powerchair Cup Final for the second successive season. 

The FA Disability Cup ensures that players within impairment-specific football have a national FA competition which they can take part in with dreams of reaching St. George’s Park for finals day.

It is a fantastic opportunity to celebrate the achievements of the players, coaches and volunteers involved in our partner competitions, and provides a platform for raising awareness of the opportunities that exist for everyone within disability football.
