MANCHESTER AMPUTEE FOOTBALL CLUB
Frequently Asked Questions:
What is 'Amputee Football'?
Amputee football is a small sided game (5 or 7-a-side) usual played on an astroturf pitch. The players all have one thing in common, they have some form of limbloss, limb deficiency, or a non-functioning limb. So really the name Amputee Football is misleading as you don't need to be an amputee to participate.
Who can play Amputee Football?
If you are an amputee, have a congenital deficiency or the incomplete use of a limb for any other reason, then you probably qualify to join in. So please think about coming along to a session and trying the sport with people who have similar experiences to yourself. Whether you are a cancer survivor, ex or serving member of the HM Forces or living with a congenital deficiency, all are welcome at Manchester Amputee FC.
Do i need to be young & fit to join in?
Not really, we can't do anything about your age! But we can give you advice on getting fitter if you think you need to when you have tried the sport. MAFC has had players from early teens up to our more 'experienced' members who are over 50 and still going strong.
How far can i progress playing for MAFC?
Many of our team have turned up just wanting to experience kicking a ball again and gone on to travel the world representing England & Great Britain in World & European Cups. We are active in local and national league & cup competitions, and MAFC as a club team has represented the UK at the World Club Championships in Russia 2008 finishing 3rd. Whatever your goals are we can accommodate them and help to fulfill your potential.
