The IFCPF, as the International Federation for CP Football, is responsible for and dedicated to the development of the game across the world. Consequently the IFCPF is keenly focused on increasing the number of players accessing a high quality football experience in as many countries, and across as many continents, as possible. To support this ongoing objective, the IFCPF provides technical assistance and funding, via development grants, to National Paralympic Committees and Football Federations for projects focusing on:
- Coach Education Courses
- Development Level Competitions
- Supporting the participation of female players
- National Teams (countries at development levels)
Development Tournaments supported by IFCPF
Countries interested to host a development tournament have to submit the application form, along with the required supporting documentation, to the IFCPF secretariat before November 1st of the year prior to the commencement of the grant’s activities.
Host applicants must be a IFCPF member and/or from a FIFA federation country.
