Following the cancellation of last season’s FA Disability Cup we are excited to announce that the 2021 event will be going ahead and we cannot wait to welcome the competing teams to St. George's Park on Saturday 17 and Sunday 18 July 2021.
The weekend will see SGP host the FA Disability Cup, which is the largest competition of its kind in this country, and for the past four years it has ensured that players within impairment-specific football have a national FA competition to call their own, complete with dreams of reaching the national football centre for finals weekend.
There are five cup finals scheduled to take place across the weekend in partnership with a range of impairment specific organisations, and it looks set to be the perfect event to really kick off and inspire the return of disability football following a terribly tough year for everyone.
The FA Disability Cup will be just the tonic to raise spirits and remind everyone involved in the game why they should aspire to return.
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.
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.
