BackgroundEdit

The Football Association manages the national team.[1] The team held a national team training camp in Macau in 2007 in 2008, where their performance was tracked to assess among other things how jet lag impacted their performance. The study found that jet lag impacted performance for the first three to four days.[2] In October 2014, an IFCPF coaching workshop was held in Wales to try to further develop the sport, with participants from Wales, England and the Republic of Ireland.[3] By 2016, England had a national championships to support the national team and was active in participating in the IFCPF World Championships.[4] National team development is supported by an International Federation of Cerebral Palsy Football (IFCPF) recognized national championship. Recognized years for the national IFCPF recognized competition include 2013, 2014, 2015, and 2016.[5]

In 2016, after getting an endorsement by the World AntiDoping Agency (WADA), the IFCPF Anti-Doping Code was formally amended to allow for out of competition testing. This was done through a WADA approved Whereabouts Programme managed through ADAMS. Drawing from players in a Registered Testing Pool, players from this country were included ahead of the 2016 Summer Paralympics in Rio.[6]
