Electricity of France is an international French company that is always involved in supporting people with disabilities and/or reduced mobility. Their support of sports for people with disabilities in France led to a natural association with FIPFA. A sport that requires electrical energy to allow players to propel their wheelchairs makes the link between powerchair football and EDF seem more than obvious.
Since 2008, EDF has been the partner who brings the most to the International Federation. In 2012, in addition to its annual partnership, EDF co-financed the first international under-16 training camp held in November in Coimbra, Portugal.
In 2013, EDF brings its valuable assistance to co-finance an international tournament for players under 18 years of age. The tournament will be held in France in November/December.
The partnership between EDF and the Powerchair Football Federation has helped our association to achieve a truly international dimension. With generous EDF funding, FIPFA is able to implement numerous actions of support and development of our sport.
