Para Football x Just Football
- 03 December 2021
Para Football is immensely proud to announce our collaboration with Just Football App
The partnership results from our shared values in connecting and empowering people from all walks of life through football.
Creating a healthier world through innovative gaming - 80% of young people don’t get enough exercise and miss out on positive physical and mental effects.
With Just Football's gamification of football, young people no longer have to choose between screen time and exercise. The app simply gives them the best of both. We help our users find a healthy lifestyle with a balance between screen time and physical activity.
Football For All
Football is a sport for everyone and Para Football exists to ensure ‘all’ are part of Football. We teamed up to create 6 new challenges in the Just Football App that people could interpret in their own way and make their own.

Each ambassador presents 3 football challenges ranging from shooting to skills.

The challenges hope to inspire all walks of people to play football and to amplify the Football for All weekend whose goal is to offer 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 everyone.
