EDF/US-Metro Initial Tournament for Under-18!

This November, the Federation International de Powerchair Football Association (FIPFA), is organising its first tournament for players under the age of eighteen. This competition will be held in Antony and is open to teams from FIPFA member countries, thanks to the generous support from both EDF and Invacare, official partners of the Federation since its inception in 2006.

The tournament is organised with the invaluable support of l’US-Métro which is providing the gymnasium in the sports facilities of the Croix de Berny.

This friendly competition is for teams of young people, aged between 8 and 18 years, regardless of their level of play. The objective of this project is deeper than just the importance of competition.  In addition to this opportunity for high-level competition, this tournament will allow participants to advance their skills in the discipline as well as have the extraordinary experience of meeting players from other countries and cultures.

  1. USA
  2. Ireland (team 1)
  3. Ireland (team 2)
