Metro Blind Sport partners with Fulham FC Foundation
Posted on: January 25, 2019 by Metro Blind Sport
Metro Blind Sport has partnered with the Fulham FC Foundation, the London FA and SENSE to create a football programme targeted at blind and partially sighted people. Beginning in February 2019 at Brixton Recreation Centre, the 19 week programme will include expert football tuition by Fulham coaches for all ages and abilities.
Starting with a free taster session on the 14th February, the programme seeks to not only provide coaching but create an experience for the participants by including a tour of Craven Cottage and tickets to a game. Partially-sighted football is an adapted version of futsal for players with a visual impairment. Competitive matches are played regularly throughout the UK and this programme provides a pathway for London residents to join the London Metro Futsall Team.
Blind football is five-a-side football - and, more specifically, it is an adapted version of futsal. Blind football is also sometimes known as B1 football or football five-a-side.
Martin Symcox, CEO of Metro Blind Sport says, 'We are delighted to be working in partnership with Fulham FC Foundation, SENSE and the London FA to provide blind and partially sighted people in London with the chance to take part in coached football sessions. Our aim is to provide a safe and enjoyable environment with quality coaching that can assist people to get active, make new friends and experience the benefits that football brings.'
