The development of football for Blind Athletes in Europe

More than 40 European countries are now playing blind football thanks to the partnership between the International Blind Sports Federation (IBSA) and able-bodied football federation UEFA.

As a result of the agreement balls, cloth eyeshades and official black-out eyeshades were donated to 19 countries between July 2017 and June 2018. The equipment was sent to grassroots programmes, youth development initiatives and women’s teams in countries new to blind football including Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania and Switzerland.
