Muscular Dystrophy UK is bringing wheelchair football to the nation.
We’ve joined forces with the The Wheelchair Football Association to boost participation in powerchair football.
Our new five-year partnership will see the launch of two national leagues - The Muscular Dystrophy UK Premiership and the Muscular Dystrophy UK Championship.
Powerchair football is the fastest growing disability team sport in the country with over 1,000 people playing on a weekly basis. More than half of the people participating are affected by a muscle-wasting conditions.

Today is the 2016 National Conference and AGM. We are very much looking forward to seeing everyone who is attending.
We are especially excited about watching our President Sue Barker hand out the very well-deserved President's Awards, and welcoming all our guest speakers who are joining us for the day. We will be live streaming the Wheelchair Football Association (WFA) draw at 1.30pm on Facebook so tune in!
