Become an Affiliate FA

Affiliate Football Associations

Para Football works in partnership with FAs worldwide. These collaborations are focused on a shared vision and passion for ensuring every person with a disability can participate in football on an equal basis with others.

Affiliate FA's benefit from unique networking opportunities, increased visibility of their work on a global level, new funding streams, and strategic partnerships.

As a Para Football affiliate, FAs can contribute to the promotion and development of the participation of persons with disabilities in football while also benefiting from the knowledge and experience of our network.

At Para Football we seek to positively disrupt traditional ways of working to create meaningful and active partnerships which make a difference, and empower persons with disabilities to choose the way they wish to play and interact with the game of football.

Can you support another national association to be part of Para Football?

We recognise there is a real and clear disparity between the nations and regions we work with and the resources available to them.

Our mission is to: "Ensure opportunity for persons with disabilities to participate on an equal basis with others in football".


We want to give associations with greater capacity and capability, the opportunity to support other by passing it forward:

  • Support a partner association by covering their affiliation to Para Football.
  • Donate an affiliation, and Para Football will award it to an association that is passionate to start Para Football.

Partner International Federations

Our Para Football Steering Board includes a range of international federations which are mostly volunteer led. The work they do and opportunities they provide are amazing, especially as they receive minimal financial support.

By donating to Para Football, 50% of every general donation will be divided between all current partner international federations to support their work.
