Cerebral Palsy Football World Championships 2015
Don’t miss your chance to be part of the first international tournament to be hosted at St George’s Park, the home of England’s 24 national teams.
Tickets start at £5/£2.50 concessions Tickets are now on general sale for the IFCPF (International Federation of Cerebral Palsy Football) World Championships which is taking place at St George’s Park, between June 16-28, 2015.
Host nation England will be joined by the 15 other leading teams from around the world to compete for the title of World Champions. And for teams, the tournament comes with the added incentive as the main qualifier for the Rio Paralympic Games 2016.
Following a lunchtime opening ceremony, England gets the tournament underway with a Group A game against Japan at 1.00pm. The Three Lions follow this up with clashes against two of the top-three ranked sides in the world in the guise of Iran (June 18 – KO 7pm) and Ukraine (June 20, 5pm).
Team Captain, Jack Rutter said: “The draw poses a tough test, but we know that with hard work that we have been putting in and our determination and tactical awareness we can rise to the challenge.”
The CP Football World Championships is the first time St. George’s Park will host an international football tournament with a number of games taking place on site. Following on from the World Championships, the facility will play host to the 2018 UEFA Under 17 Championships. Last summer the venue also saw the likes of international giants FC Barcelona and FC Porto among a number of teams to use the 330-acres of Staffordshire site for their pre-season training base.
Thursday 07 July 2016 is THE BIG HEALTH DAY from 10am to 3pm.
