Para Football x Just Football: Because Football has no boundaries #footballforall

Football For All

Just Football App is immensely proud to announce a collaboration with Para Football – the world’s most prominent football organisation for persons with disabilities. The partnership results from our shared values in connecting and empowering people from all walks of life through football.

Para Football provides parallel opportunities to the mainstream game, empowering persons with disabilities to make their own choice about how they wish to play and interact with the game of football. The term ‘Para Football’ aims to create a shift in focus, highlighting the abilities of players, and emphasising the diverse network of persons with disabilities who choose to play the beautiful game in a variety of ways. 

Football For All 

As part of the Football for All weekend we released a new Para Football section in the app with 6 challenges presented by two inspiring ambassadors, Alex Sánchez and Eunate Arraiza.

The Football For All weekend is an opportunity for the football community to celebrate UN International Day of Persons with Disabilities (3 December) and showcase how the beautiful game is working for disability inclusion. The challenges hope to inspire people from all walks of life to play football and allow users of the app to interpret the challenges in their own way and make them their own.

The Ambassadors

Eunate Arraiza is Spain’s only deaf female pro footballer. The Athletic Club footballer, who has complete deafness in her left ear has more than 200 games as a lioness. Eunate is one of the best left-backs in the Primera Iberdrola, making her international debut with Spain in 2017.

Alex Sánchez came to fame in 2009 while representing Real Zaragoza, when he became the first football player to appear in a professional match despite being born without a right hand.
