Disability Cup Final- Blind Football

FA Disability Cup

Ending with a day of finals at St. George's Park

PLAY AT THE NATIONAL FOOTBALL CENTRE

It is The FA's ambition that The FA Disability Cup finals day will become a key date in the football calendar, with St. George’s Park providing a world-class backdrop for the culmination of each partner competition’s cup final.

2016-17 saw St. George’s Park host five cup finals on Saturday 6 May:

- Amputee Cup Final (adult male) in partnership with England Amputee Football Association
- Blind Cup Final (adult male) in partnership with the National Blind Football League
- Cerebral Palsy Cup Final (adult male) in partnership with CP Sport
- Deaf Cup Final (U18 female) in partnership with English Schools Football Association
- Powerchair Cup Final (adult mixed-gender) in partnership with the Wheelchair Football Association


The FA Disability Cup ensures that players within impairment-specific football have a national FA competition which they can take part in with dreams of reaching St. George’s Park for finals day.

It is a fantastic opportunity to celebrate the achievements of the players, coaches and volunteers involved in our partner competitions, and provides a platform for raising awareness of the opportunities that exist for everyone within disability football.

Talent ID Programme

Northamptonshire FA offers any young person with a disability, or sensory impairment (Cerebral Palsy, partially sighted, hearing impaired, learning disability, amputee, blind, or deaf) under the age of 16 the opportunity to showcase their footballing talents at an England Talent Day event.

Following the session, players will be signposted to further playing opportunities based on their performances, ranging from local clubs to impairment specific regional training squads.

Each of these is a stepping stone on the England Talent Player Pathway, which can - and has - previously led to players from the county representing their country.
