An Overview of Football

It's fast, skilful, fun and open to everyone. Most of us have kicked a football around at some point. One of the real beauties of the game is that it can be a sport for life. Friends and children in the park, jumpers for goalposts. Its free, fund and one of the best ways to keep fit and healthy.

The FA, the governing body of football in England, is responsible for developing and regulating the game at all levels from international football to the grassroots.

There are six international disability squads, one for each specific impairment. These squads represent England in friendly internationals as well as in European and World Championships.
