What are coaches feelings towards disability football? Do some versions get more attention and coverage than others? Do we fully understand the needs of the players?
Mainstream and disability sport should be treated the same way. Disabled and non disabled players are all individuals with their own specific needs. Some want to play competitively and others want to play socially.
Naturally there will be more players from the larger impairment groups for instance; people with vision/hearing impairments, cerebral palsy and learning difficulties. The same could be said of women's football versus men's football. It all depends on popularity and crowd attendance.
To summarise, disabled people are just people that want to play sport.
