We have an ambitious plan to develop disability football. Football Your Way is The FA’s Game plan for Disability Football 2021-24. The plan is the first of its kind and covers seven key areas, demonstrating our commitment to ensuring disabled people can engage and participate in football their way, from grassroots all the way to the elite end of the game. The plan comes under the umbrella of the broader equality, diversity and inclusion strategy which is about creating a game for all.

We believe that disabled people should have the choice to be able to play mainstream football wherever possible. However, we realise that some disabled players may be better provided for in ‘pan-disability’ or ‘impairment-specific’ football (more on these formats below) either on a temporary or permanent basis. 

From grassroots to the international game, our aim is to create and sustain a culture across the sport where disabled people have access to all opportunities and feel they truly belong, both on and off the pitch.
