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 believes in flexible, inclusive and accessible playing opportunities for everyone, and is 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 that are providing playing opportunities for footballers with a disability.

If you would like any information on how to get involved in disability football, whether you are a player, coach, club or referee, please contact:

Ability Counts League

The 2019/20 season will represent the 5th season of the Wiltshire Ability Counts League and the league has grown considerably in that time. 16 teams competed in the league last season with Chippenham Town Ability Counts winning the adult division, whilst Stratton Juniors were crowned u16s champions. Teams take part in 6 central venue festivals across the season. 

This season is expected to be another season of growth for the league with more teams across the existing divisions, as well as the development of an u12s division. There are clubs set up across the county who take part in the league, as well as run training sessions throughout the season and social events.
