Powerchair Football

Our Powerchair Football team works in partnership with Sale United FC and helps to promote football opportunities for wheelchair users. We launched our team in September 2017 with United defender Eric Bailly.

Powerchair Football

Project info:

We run weekly sessions at Moss Side Millennium Powerhouse open to wheelchair users of all ages.

Thursdays, 5-7pm
This session is for more advanced players, with access to their own powerchairs.

Saturdays, 1-2pm
This is the development session for beginners who have access to their own powerchairs.

There are also a number of opportunities for the team to compete against other teams including the Muscular Dystrophy National Leagues which are run by the Wheelchair Football Association. They were formed in 2005 to govern the sport of Powerchair Football in England. The WFA is recognised by the Football Association as the sports lead organisation and our laws are sanctioned by them.
