“The disabled people that do sport, they don’t think about what they don’t have but try to get better with what they do have. That is the same for me.”
Do you know about amputee soccer? Amputee soccer is a special form of soccer that is played by those who have had their leg or arm amputated.
For leg amputees, they are allowed to play as outfieldplayers using crutches.
Arm amputees can play as goalkeepers.
Because special equipment usually necessary for disabled person’s sports is not needed, the sport is spreading rapidly in and outside Japan as a sport that can be enjoyed easily.
Now, the ICC has decided to co-host an event where people can try this exciting sport.
On the day you will be able to mix with the members of the amputee soccer team FC Alvorada and Waseda’s own Soccer Club. (*FC Alvorada)
“I love soccer!”
“I want to try something new!”
“I want to try playing sports together with the disabled.”
The is a great chance to do something people rarely experience.If you have a disability or not, we’d love you to join us!
※Able-bodied players will play with one foot and using crutches.
