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 many 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.
Within Pan-Disability Football, there are opportunities to take part informally in turn-up-and-play sessions through to more formal team and competition based football.
