POWERSOCCERMAKING FOOTBALL ACCESSIBLE FOR ALL
KNOW MORE ABOUT POWERSOCCER
Canada has played a vital role in the development of Powerchair Football, with roots being traced as far back as 1979. Although Powerchair Football Canada had only been established in 2008 at the Canadian PowerSoccer Summit in Vancouver, teams and leagues have emerged and been around in BC since the early 1980’s.
2005 saw representatives from Canada meet with 5 other countries to help develop and form what is now FIPFA.
In 2007, Canada held it’s first ever National Game in Vancouver as BC topped Quebec by a score of 2-0. Since then, Powerchair Football Canada has worked hard to promote the sport across the entire country, with Alberta becoming involved in 2009.
