IFCPF celebrates International Day of Persons with Disabilities


Today marks the International day of persons with disabilities (UN) where we come together as an organisation to celebrate our players, coaches, referees, physios, governing bodies, clubs, schools and parents who support our members within Cerebral Palsy football and disability sport.

This year the UN International day of persons with disabilities campaign revolves around, 'Building Back Better: toward a disability-inclusive, accessible and sustainable post COVID-19 World'.

We hope you all take a moment today to remember how far we've come, what we have achieved together within our sport, but also how far we have to go.
