Both the IAFA Seniors and Juniors will be in action this Summer in Warsaw, Poland. First up the Senior International Squad will compete at the Amp Futbol Cup on the 24th and 25th of June. The Amp Futbol Cup has been the most prestigious and competitive Amputee Football tournament in Europe since its inception in 2012. In this, the sixth edition of the competition, Ireland will face England and France in the group stage and should they advance, will compete against Poland, Japan and Greece for the coveted trophy. The squad have been training tirelessly since January to prepare for the tournament and are eagerly looking forward to testing themselves against some of the world's elite teams in advance of the European Championships this October. The tournament will be live streamed and links to the stream will be available through the IAFA's social media channels on June 24th and 25th.
6 Juniors will represent Ireland at the second EAFF Junior Amputee Football Training Camp from the 6-9 of July. Following on from the enormous success that last year's camp in Dublin was, Poland will host Junior Amputee Footballers from across the continent for a weekend of football and fun. Our six Juniors were chosen for the dedication and commitment they have shown over the past year. Each player cannot wait to train alongside their European peers as they continue to develop in the hope that someday they will play in the senior squad. We would like to wish our Juniors the very best of luck for their exciting trip and hope they thoroughly enjoy the experience. No doubt they will all be donning the Green jersey in no time at all.
