First ever WFS Football Without Limits Award

Para Football is absolutely delighted that football for persons with disabilities has been recognised by the World Football Summit, helping to give a vital boost to our work in disability inclusion in football.

We aim to support football stakeholders in every continent, country and community to provide #FootballForAll and develop more opportunities for persons with disabilities to choose how they wish to be included and interact with the beautiful game.

 

"Of the ten categories of the #WFSAwards, the one I am most proud of is the #FootbalWithoutLimits award, presented by #FootballForAll, which values companies, clubs and federations that have supported the inclusion and visibility in sport of people with disabilities, through any initiative, technology, marketing campaign or innovative solution."

Marian Otamendi - Directora de World Football Summmit

World Football Summit Awards Winners

After having received more than 300 applications we can finally announce the winners of the 2022 WFS Awards. Before doing so, we cannot thank enough those who submitted their initiative for participating in this year's edition.

We also are aware that these Awards would not be a reality without the support of our amazing category partners and the jury members who took the time to evaluate the initiatives.

Finally, this is the perfect time to let you know that in the upcoming days we will unveil a new chapter in the life of the WFS Awards, which will help them transcend far beyond the night of the gala, create meaningful impact and stand the test of time.

Make sure you do not miss this week's edition of WFS Digest to learn all about it.
