The Irish Amputee football squad is currently getting ready to test themselves against some of the world’s elite teams at the European Championships in Turkey this October.

The team spent time at a recent training camp in Limerick where they were presented with CX+ Sport zip tops, polo shirts and bags.

The Irish Amputee Football Association (IAFA) was set up in April 2011, with the aim of developing a National Irish Amputee Football League, to promote and develop the sport of Amputee Football in Ireland and to help towards the further development of people interested in Amputee Football across Ireland.

The IAFA operates under the FAI’s Football For All programme and will provide any person with an amputation, congenital deficiency, or other limb affecting disorder with the opportunity to access Amputee Football at grassroots, club and national level.

Training sessions are open to both male and female amputees of all ages and the IAFA is a member of the World Amputee Football Federation (WAFF) and founding members of the European Amputee Football Federation (EAFF).
