England Football, The Football Association’s new home for participation and the grassroots game, has launched Football Your Way, a new campaign to help disabled footballers return to the sport and reclaim the moments they have missed, as Covid-19 restrictions are lifted across the country. The campaign is funded by Sport England as part of the tackling inequalities funding programme.
The campaign provides a new online information hub to help support and motivate people with a disability to feel confident and empowered to take part in football-based activities. Whether that’s at home or in a local park, the campaign will encourage preparation for a return to the court or pitch for players, whenever they feel ready to do so. There is something for all ages and abilities on the Football Your Way hub, from skill demonstrations, to challenges and downloadable resources to suit all abilities and ages.
With lockdown restrictions continuing to ease, 55% of disabled people want to increase their amount of physical activity. The creation of England Football’s Football Your Way campaign will provide them with easily accessible and varied resources, catering for a range of abilities and ages irrelevant of whether players play mainstream, pan-disability or impairment specific formats of the game. The campaign also hopes to inspire newcomers to the sport.
