The Irish Senior International squad took time out from their pre-match training to help promote the EAFF's European Amputee Football Weeks which kicked off on Thursday June 1st. The initiative, supported by UEFA, will see Amputee Football events take place across Europe to promote the game and encourage the further development of the sport across the continent. Having flown back from New Jersey following their game against Mexico, preparing to meet visitors Uruguay at the Aviva on Sunday evening, the Irish squad were on hand to support the IAFA's involvement in the EAFA's initiative. The IAFA featured at the Champions League festival in Cardiff on Thursday, will send 6 Junior Amputee's to take part in the EAFF Junior Development Camp in Warsaw and will compete in the Amp Futbol Cup, also in Warsaw later this month, all as part of the Amputee Football Weeks. The association and the squad would like to thank Martin, Roy and all the Irish squad for their support.
