Football for All

The Football for All programme, is a programme of the Football Association of Ireland with a central aim to deliver football opportunities to people who may not ordinarily get a chance to play the game. The Football for All programme is made up of players from all groups and sporting bodies that cater for people with a disability who want to play football.

The FAI in the past 4 years has established a number of associations to govern particular programmes within Football for All, these are Blind Football Ireland (BFI), Association of Irish Powerchair Football (AIPF) and Irish Amputee Football Association (IAFA). All three independently govern their specific football game across Ireland providing the pathway for their members from grassroots to international where possible.

Meath has already one such Football For All club established, East Meath United FFA have grown from strengthen to strengthen since it started back in 2018. The group will resume meeting over the summer months. Balrath FC with the support of Meath Local Sports Partnership and the FAI Meath development officer are at the starting point of forming a Football For All group. The club will host taster sessions every Friday from 6pm -7pm in Kentstown Community Park Facility.
