Powerchair Football began in Spain in October 2013 and since then we have been developing this beautiful sport in the country. During the first stage –from 2013 to 2017– we have grown in learning: the first clubs have been created, we have developed the first local tournaments and the first trainings for players and volunteers have been carried out.
With a well-established base, the second stage begins in March 2018 when we formally created the Spanish Powerchair Football Association (ACPFE) and we received the FIPFA membership as a full member.
Since then, with the Association formed and the permanent accompaniment of EPFA and FIPFA, the sport has continued to grow: during 2019 we organized the first FIPFA approved clinic for referees and trainers, we entered as members of full right in the Spanish Royal Federation (RFEF) and we have implemented the first Spanish Powerchair Football National League with 8 teams.
PARTICIPATIONS IN INTERNATIONAL EVENTS AND RESULTS
We are currently developing the Spanish Powerchair Football National Team, which we hope will be an example in values and have a quick growth at a competitive level, without losing sight in the development of the Spain clubs and their players.
THE POWERCHAIR FOOTBALL IN THE COUNTRY
We currently have 7 full member clubs and many others in a development stage. In September 2019 we implemented the first ACPFE National League in which 8 teams and 60 players participate –a League consisting in 5 official dates and a total of 28 games.
We are very happy to see how the players train, take the sport seriously and are part of this growth process. We want the Powerchair Football to continue evolving in Spain and we are available to accompany the international development.
