IFCPF is the new official International Federation for CP Football following the sport realizing its independence from 1st January 2015, after 37 years, from the Cerebral Palsy International Sport and Recreation Association (CPISRA). Supported and part funded by its member federations, UEFA and the International Paralympic Committee; IFCPF unites countries, Football Associations, National Paralympic Committees, disability organisations and participants from across the world via the game of CP Football.
CPISRA remains an integral partner of IFCPF in the development of sport for those with cerebral palsy, and consequently a smooth transition process towards the sport aligning itself under its new banner of IFCPF was accomplished in 2015. Furthermore throughout this carefully managed change in administrating body, the sport has maintained a high level of support to all its members in the areas such as Participation, Competition, Workforce Officials and Classification.
