THE FA DISABILITY CUP RETURNS TO ST. GEORGE’S PARK

The FA Disability Cup returns this summer with England’s top grassroots disability teams competing at the national football centre, St. George’s Park, on Saturday 16 and Sunday 17 June. 

The competition, which is now in its third year, is the largest of its kind in this country, with six cup finals scheduled to take place in partnership with a range of impairment-specific organisations:

  • Amputee (England Amputee Football Association)
  • Blind (The National Blind Football League)
  • Cerebral palsy (Cerebral Palsy Sport)
  • Deaf (English Schools’ Football Association)
  • Partially sighted (National Partially Sighted Football League)
  • Powerchair (Wheelchair Football Association)

As well as the introduction of a partially sighted category, this year’s event will also play host to an exhibition of frame football, which is a new format of the game currently being developed in conjunction with Cerebral Palsy Sport for people who use a frame or walker.

Phil Heap, National Participation Manager, said: “The FA Disability Cup is a fantastic opportunity to celebrate and recognise the achievements of players, coaches, officials, volunteers, fans and partner organisations involved across the grassroots disability game.

“I am delighted we will be returning to St. George’s Park for the third year in a row as it provides the perfect platform to raise awareness of the opportunities that exist within grassroots disability football For All. I would like to wish everyone taking part the very best of luck.”

IMPORTANT INFORMATION AROUND U6S PLAYING FOOTBALL.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION AROUND U6S PLAYING FOOTBALL. 

After being made aware of a number of posts on social media, we believe it is a good time to remind everyone about the rule concerning the youngest age that children can play in organised matches.

The FA rule on this is really clear, and is contained within the Standard Code Of Rules – Youth (SCORY)

Children Under 6 Years Old

‘A child who has not attained the age of six shall not play, and shall not be permitted or encouraged to play, in a match of any kind’

Clubs need to remember this when anyone within their club is advertising on social media pages for friendlies of tournaments involving Under 6 teams.
