Premier League and BT Disability Football event returns for second year

Participants from 23 Premier League and English Football League clubs took to the indoor pitch at Manchester City’s Etihad Campus on Tuesday for the Premier League and BT Disability Football Festival.

Youngsters from across the county who regularly participate in the Community Sports Foundation’s (CSF) Premier League and BT Disability programme sessions had the opportunity to play football and learn new skills as part of the annual event, which aims to inspire disabled people through sport.

The day, hosted by CSF Trustee Jake Humphrey (pictured above, left) and BT’s Abi Griffiths, was split into two and saw participants take part in a skills challenge in the morning and then compete in a pan-disability football tournament in the afternoon, all whilst proudly wearing Norwich City football kit.

Former international footballers Joleon Lescott and John Hartson were also special guests on the day.

BT’s Jake Humphrey said:

“I’m really excited to be involved with the Premier League and BT Disability programme and have loved seeing the progress that’s been made since we launched it two years ago.”
