Bringing the plan to life

Officially formed in January 2015, CP Football became an independent sport after 37 years under the ‘Cerebral Palsy Sport and Recreation Association’ (CPISRA). Ever since we have been developing our sport to offer all members of the CP Football family a platform to fall in love with the game. Laying the foundations to grow participation, IFCPF have a range of programmes and initiatives focused on developing specific areas of the game and providing support to our membership.

We aim to bring this plan to life by further exploring:

  • Our Programmes
  • Management and Delivery
  • Guiding Behaviours
  • Measuring and Reporting
  • Sustainability
  • Funding


"Our strategic plan outlines our aspirations for the future, but to be achieved it needs to be applied to the day-to-day business context of the organization. Through an extensive and diverse workforce of staff and volunteers across the world, we are pleased to have so many great people involved in CP Football who will ensure a long and positive future for our sport." says IFCPF CEO / Secretary General, Sam Turner.
