Blind Football game before the final of Champions League!

Blind football will be showcased on Saturday 28 May, before the UEFA Champions League final between Real Madrid and Atletico Madrid, as part of the UEFA Champions Festival, a four-day event in Milan, Italy.

Italian club team A.S.D. LIGURIA Calcio Non Vedenti will meet French powerhouse Girondins de Bordeaux in this football-5-a-side friendly match, held in the grounds of the Sforzesco Castle. Since it will take place four hours before the Champions League final, thousands of fans are expected to witness the exhibition. The game is a result of IBSA’s ongoing partnership with UEFA, which provides financial support to develop football for blind and partially sighted players in Europe.

No more illegal parking of vehicles on ramps for people with disabilities in Athens!

A total of 830 sensors were placed by the Municipality of Athens on ramps and crossings for people with special needs, to deal with antisocial parking. "It's not just a lack of respect, it's like saying that you are absolutely indifferent to the person with disabilities, to the grandfather, the grandmother, the mom with the child", stressed the mayor Kostas Bakogiannis speaking to SKAI. As he explained, the sensor, as soon as a car approaches, automatically notifies the municipal police, who will arrive at the spot in real time. Also, those who park at crossings or ramps will be removed the plates and the driving license for 60 days, without a fine.
