Withdrawal of Iran from 2015 CP Football World ChampionshipsNews
It is with great regret that the International Federation of CP Football and Local Organising Committee must announce that the Iran team will not be taking part in the 2015 CP Football World Championships starting on June 16th, for reasons beyond our control.
The tournament will now be for 15 teams, with Group A operating a three team group made up of Japan, Ukraine and England. For further information and updated fixture schedule click here
As the CP Football World Championships is the main qualifier for the Paralympic Games, Iran therefore do not have the opportunity to be part of the 2016 Rio Paralympic Games as there are no further qualificiation tournaments for which they are eligible.
As one of the top CP Football nations, it is disappointing that they will not be able to particpate in the next Paralympic Games.
