WAAD - World Autism Awareness Day

2 April: call for “A happy journey through life” for people on the autism spectrum and their families.

Why Inclusive Football?

A formal project, a sports association, CONI recognition; a path to active responsibility in the project, a contribution to psychophysical development through the game of football, focusing on interaction, self-esteem, self-irony, commitment, perseverance and team spirit.

Break Barriers Together for Autism

The project incorporates the UN CRPD, in particular Article 30 for participation in recreation, leisure and sport. The project has as its future goal the participation in a competitive championship of one or more seasons from provincial to national level and the inclusion of other persons on and out of the autism spectrum. We are creating a children's team too.

Sport, Education and Inclusion

The project involves a large part of the population of all age groups because football is a popular sport, a meeting point between educators and people on the autism spectrum. Being a team sport, it naturally promotes the implementation of social skills. A competitive sport educates to compete. Team building empowers and activates its players, facilitating processes of inclusion, self-determination, self-advocacy and autonomy. Sporting activity promotes psychophysical well-being.

Inclusion is further promoted by adherence to FIFA football regulations and not to special disability regulations.

We in the media

A football team taking the field against the toughest opponent: disability and indifference. These are the main motivations that drive the idea, the conviction to convey through a universal sport like football a message of inclusion with the philosophy that it can be done.
