The new England blind team and an in-the-works cerebral palsy side are part of what the Football Association has described as a “hugely exciting” current picture in terms of women’s para football.
In its ‘Football Your Way’ disability plan launched in October 2021, the FA stated its aim of fielding two new England women’s teams – blind and CP.
The former, who had their first official training camp at St George’s Park a year ago, are currently preparing for a first world championships this summer, and the hope regarding the latter, with a building process ongoing, is that a side will be established “in the next couple of years”.
