Premier League Football Stars Help Launch the Elite Powerchair Football Programme

Recently, students on our new Elite Powerchair Football programme, delivered in partnership with The Albion Foundation, were joined by the Champions League finalist Albion Foundation Powerchair football team as well as West Bromwich Albion footballers (Ben Foster, Salomon Rondon, Claudio Yacob to name a few!), for the launch of our new programme.

During the event, our Powerchair footballers went up against some of Albion's Premier League stars in a game of Powerchair football, which didn't go too well for the West Bromwich Albion footballers as our team won by quite a comfortable 6-0 margin!

West Bromwich Albion are just one of the clubs set to benefit from a three-year joint funding initiative between the Premier League and BT that will help each club to recruit a Disability Officer who can help role out disability projects in the community. As part of the event a film crew was also present, filming a wider documentary that will air on BT Sport Score on Saturday 17th December.
