Overview


Football is exhilarating to watch and is one of the world’s most popular Para sports.

Under the governance and leadership of IBSA the sport is split into two: blind football and partially sighted football.

  • IBSA Blind Football is for players that have severe visual impairments. They are known as ‘B1’ athletes.
  • IBSA Partially Sighted Football is for players with less severe – although still acute – visual impairments who are classified as B2 and B3.
