Our Structure

As a new foundation, Para Football is a fully volunteer led and managed organisation. Our simple structure will develop as we work more closely with a wide range of partners, attract additional resources and build our capacity.

Para Football is composed of an Executive Board, Partner IFs Group, Units and various Committees.

Executive Board (Founders)

The first Executive Board of Para Football will be announced in the near future, with appointments being made to involve a diverse range of individuals and strategic partners.

Currently we have a small group of volunteer founding members who are responsible for the management of the organisation and day-to-day operations.


Partner IFs Group

Para Football is working to create a network of international federations governing the different types of football for persons with disabilities. As recognised federations they contribute to the development of football opportunities and have goals that are aligned with the Vision and Mission of Para Football.

Units & Committees

Reflecting the key areas of support provided by Para Football to the range of partners and stakeholders we work with, internal 'Units' and representative 'Committees' will be formed.

  • The internal 'Units' will be our operational teams bringing together experts in their relevant field for the advancement of Para Football. Find out about our Units here
  • Representative 'Committees' will provide a platform for stakeholders from across all Para Football to be represented, consulted and informed.
  • From time to time, working groups may be formed to look into and work on specific projects or pieces of work.
