Action in the B1 League for blind football

Disability

From grassroots to the elite game, whether you're a coach or a player,  here is how you can take part in disability football

 

There has never been a better time to get involved and play football, whatever your ability level. There are now more opportunities than ever to play football if you have a disability.

Wiltshire FA believe in flexible, inclusive and accessible playing opportunities for everyone, and are committed to delivering a range of opportunities for players with a disability to access football at various levels across the county.

Wiltshire currently has 18 affiliated disabled football teams playing in competitive leagues both locally and nationally whilst also supporting several recreational sessions for organisations who are providing playing opportunities for footballers with a disability.
