By on 20th October 2021 0 85 Views

Tamilnadu Blind Football Association partnering with the Indian Blind Football Association is all set to host the national level championship for both men and women from October 26 to October 30 with sixteen men’s teams and six women’s teams taking part. About 200 players from West Bengal and Karnataka and many other states are expected to participate. While this is the sixth edition for men, it is the first-ever edition for the female army.

With the support of the Montfort school, the association conducted a three-day residential camp in September. With a turnover of over 80 players, the camp laid the foundation for TNFBA to host the national level tournament.

” There is no opportunity for sports for people with disabilities in most special schools. Regular schools focus on academics, but without physical activities it becomes monotonous” adds Dipti Jha, CEO of the association adding that the goal was for the players to reach Paralympics. The long term vision of TNFBA is to host an international tournament in Chennai by 2024.

Visually impaired students get a taste of the beautiful game. They are not handicapped but alternative talent people. It’s our major responsibility to motivate them.
