Powerchair Football

London Powerchair Festival 2019

Take advantage of a great opportunity to play this fast-paced format of disability football.

London FA is pleased to reveal details of this year’s London Powerchair Festival, which provides players with a disability with a chance to play this exciting format of the game.

Taking place on Saturday 7 December 2019 at the Feel Good Centre in Walthamstow (E17 5AA), the London Powerchair Festival is open to players of all ages, with powerchairs and equipment provided.

However; please be aware that equipment is limited, so please register.


London Powerchair FestivalPowerchair Football is a unique sport that provides opportunities for people with a high level of impairment to access the game of football.  It is the only active team participation sport for people who use electric wheelchairs.

The sport is fast-paced, dynamic and very enjoyable to watch.  Due to the unique nature of the Powerchair Football, it allows all ages, disabilities and both genders to compete together. 

Powerchair Football enables disabled people to take part in regular activity and provides them with competition - something that the majority will never have, or rarely, experienced before due to their impairment. 

As a result, it builds key life skills such as teamwork and communication.
