Team and individual player registrations are still being accepted for next month’s Queensland Paralympic Football Championships in Brisbane.
Hosted by Sporting Wheelies and Disabled Association at Keperra-based Westside FC, the 7-a-side ‘Festival of Football’ will be held on Saturday, 6 August.
Team and individual player registrations close this Friday, 8 July, with late nominations accepted until the following Friday, 15 July for an additional fee of $25.
The Festival of Football is open to ambulant men, women and children with a disability from novice through to elite level experience.
Matches will be held across one day of competition with the tournament serving as the selection event for the 2016 National Paralympic 7-a-side Football Championships being held in Sydney in October.
A selection panel present at the Festival of Football will choose the Queensland team, which finished as runners-up at the 2015 Nationals.
