Here at the WFA, we believe everyone can play a part in changing lives through the power of football.

Powerchair Football is a unique sport that provides opportunities for people with a high level of impairment to access the game of football.  It is the only active team participation sport for people who use electric wheelchairs.

The sport is fast paced, dynamic and very enjoyable to watch.  Due to the unique nature of the Powerchair Football it allows all ages, disabilities and both genders to compete together. Powerchair Football enables disabled people to take part in regular activity and provides them with competition - something that the majority will never have, or rarely, experienced before due to their impairment. As a result it build key life skills such as teamwork and communication.

However it doesn’t just provide sporting opportunity - powerchair football creates a great social opportunity for the players and their families as they experience the highs and lows of participating in the nation’s favourite sport. It brings strangers together, many of whom have similar stories and life experiences, creating friendships and bonds which last a lifetime.

I have made so many friends from Powerchair football and not just from my team; there are so many different people at different ages with different disabilities. I’m so glad that I went along to that first training session it has changed my life and I am gaining so much from it. Without Powerchair football I would be a very sad, shy, angry person as I would have nothing to do.
