CITC amputees win FA People's Disability Cup

City in the Community’s (CITC’s) amputees have won the FA People’s Disability Cup.

On Saturday, 11 June, City in the Community’s Amputee team secured their first-ever FA People's Disability Cup thanks to a 1-0 win against Portsmouth at St George’s Park.

The FA People's Disability Cup is a yearly event in which teams compete for the trophy live on national broadcaster, BT Sport.

Fresh from a third-place finish in the EAFF Champions League in May, our amputees, who were without three players away on international duty, contested a hard-fought match, eventually edging what had been a very close game.

Jason El-Kaleh, Community Outreach Officer said: “To be able to showcase amputee football on BT Sport is a great opportunity for our players and our disability programmes as a whole.

“Our disability programme is all about levelling the playing field in terms of access to sport and physical activity, and our amputee team is a great example of this.

“Our players are a testament to themselves and CITC as a whole, as they continue to inspire and prove that football is for everyone, regardless of their disability.”
