Since the start of this tough year, we have needed the support of The National Lottery Community Fund.

This has enabled us to deliver a variety of adapted projects, reducing social isolation for our participants and the wider community. 💚

Let's stick together through this time, so we can continue to have a positive impact on our participants, using the power of sport. ⚽️

Take a look at what our sessions mean to some of our powerchair users. 📹

【JPFAチーム紹介とは?】
新型コロナウイルス感染症の渦中、弊協会主催のパワーチェアーフットボールチャンピオンシップジャパン2020の中止をはじめ、電動車椅子サッカー競技においても自粛を余儀なくされてきました。しかし、国内でのコロナウイルスの感染が広がってから半年以上が経ち、ようやく何らかの形で活動を再開するチームも出てきています。

このような厳しい社会情勢だからこそ、できることを見つけよう。各チームの取り組みを共有して、励まし合おう。そして、そんな私たちのことを知ってもらいたい。この状況でもできることがあるんだと、勇気を与えられる存在になろう。そんな気持ちで始めた企画です。

Press Release
Fédération Internationale de Powerchair Football Association
8 November, 2020


The Congress for the Fédération Internationale de Powerchair Football Association (FIPFA) was held virtually via Microsoft TEAMS on Saturday, 7 November, 2020.

This annual gathering of the member nations covered updates from each of the three Zones, including the efforts to keep the athletes and officials engaged during the restrictions brought on by Covid-19.

The European Zone has been busy branching out to new countries, hosting an international classification clinic, creating podcasts and the EPFA News broadcast, as well as planning several events for 2021.

The Asia/Pacific/Oceania Zone held their APO Cup in Sydney, Australia and has been working to develop the sport in more countries within the Zone.

The Americas Zone held two events, the Copa Libertadores and the APFC Americas Cup in Rio de Janeiro.Post Covid-19 shutdowns, the Zone hosted on-line training sessions for referees and coaches.

Also, the Congress discussed the postponement of the next FIPFA Powerchair Football World Cup to October, 2022, to be held in Sydney, Australia. An introduction of the Local Organising Committee revealed the well-versed and experienced background of each member, as well as his or her interest in powerchair football.

This Congress approved the relocation of both the FIPFA Headquarters and the bank account from France to England.

Sophie Bevan, the acting Director of Sport, was elected by the membership to retain this position for a four year term. Sophie stated the following:
I’m really pleased to have been elected to be Director of Sport for the next 4 years. Having been appointed by the board a year ago, it’s nice to have the support of the membership to continue what I’ve started and remain part of a fantastic sport that is a huge part of my life and has been for a number of years. Thank you all! 2020 has been an unprecedented year for our sport and everyone involved and I’m looking forward to seeing what 2021 and beyond brings and seeing everyone getting back on court when it’s safe to do so.

Status reports were also given by the department heads for referees, classification, anti-doping, and technical aspects of the game.
