The FA Disability Cup Finals for 2024 return to St. George’s Park this summer

Tuesday 11 Jun 2024

The FA Disability Cup in association with EE, returns for the eighth edition of the tournament, with six finals taking place over 29 and 30 June 2024 at St. George’s Park. 

The finals, which are the largest competition of its kind, ensure players within impairment-specific football have a national FA competition to call their own with a total of six formats of the game competing: Amputee, Blind, Cerebral Palsy, Deaf, Partially Sighted and Powerchair.  

St George’s Park will be open for fans to attend the finals and support the players from the stands.

TNT Sports will show every match live each day, presented by Lynsey Hipgrave alongside Paralympic medallist Ade Adepitan and seven-time Paralympic champion Hannah Cockcroft.

Across the weekend they will be joined by experts Scott Rogers (England Amputee head coach), David Clarke (Para GB/Blind football captain and chief executive of British Paralympic Association), Matt Crossen (England CP captain), John Tapia Owens (England head coach), Adam McEvoy (Wheelchair Football Association) and Gregg Baxter (Powerchair player). 

Highlights will be available on Channel 4 and All4.

For fans able to attend, the Experience Area will return for 2024; a dedicated space for equipment and adaptions to simulate some of the formats of disability football showcased throughout the finals weekend. For every experience completed, fans will receive a stamp and be rewarded with a token gift.

The taster sessions are linked to Football Your Way, a ground-breaking plan for Disability Football developed by the FA. Part of the three-year plan aims to grow participation, increase the number and quality of coaches, develop an inclusive and diverse talent pathway, build support for elite players, and raise the profile of disability football at every level.
