India's first blind football academy to open in Kerala
Did you know that India's blind footballers rank among the world's top 30 blind football teams?
Blind Football is a paralympic sport, and every year a World Championship is organized by the International Blind Sports Association (IBSA).
Now India will soon have its first Blind Football Academy in Kochi in Kerala. This will provide full-time football and vocational skill training.
The project has been started by the Indian Blind Federation (IBFF) with the Society for Rehabilitation of Visually Challenged (SRVC).
10 blind footballers from across the country have already been selected by IBFF who will be moving to Kerala. The football academy will also provide free accommodation for the sportsmen.
The academy’s team is made up of two permanent training staff and one physiotherapist. There is also a gym trainer, a yoga trainer and a nutritionist.
The academy will be launched on 15 September. IBFF also organises many activities and awareness games across the country.
You can reach out to IBFF at firstname.lastname@example.org or call on 9447132363.
