FA Disability Cup
Ending with a day of finals at St George's Park
THE FA DISABILITY CUP IS OUR SHOWPIECE NATIONAL COMPETITION
The FA Disability Cup has just enjoyed its fourth year and is the largest competition of its kind in this country, ensuring that players within impairment-specific football have a national FA competition to call their own, complete with dreams of reaching St. George’s Park for finals weekend.
The FA Disability Cup returned to St George’s Park on Saturday 15 and Sunday 16 June 2019 with five cup finals taking place across the weekend delivered in partnership with a range of impairment-specific organisations.
Five hard-fought finals, which included Amputee, Blind, Cerebral Palsy, Partially Sighted and Powerchair football, were contested by some of the nation’s most successful grassroots teams who competed to be crowned national champions in their respective discipline.
The players competing across the weekend were cheered on by a jubilant crowd of friends and family who joined media outlets such as Sky Sports News and ITV in celebrating the importance of disability football and the impact it has on those that play.
It is our ambition that the FA Disability Cup Finals weekend 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.
