A description of the experience

Cerebral Palsy World Cup: football saved my life

The Cerebral Palsy World Cup is held at St George's Park - the central hub for English Football.

CP football is played by people with cerebral palsy - although the degrees of the condition vary.

The classification system ensures that teams are all equal in terms of the players’ disabilities. This ranges from a 5 to 8 - 8s being those with the least impairments, 5s those with the more severe disabilities.

England have top 10 ranking and ready to improve on a disappointing Paralympics performance back in London three years ago.
