By Published On: July 28, 2021Categories: Media Release

GameDay, the leading provider of digital solutions to international, national, grassroots and  professional  sporting  organisations  across  the  United  Kingdom,  Europe,  Australia and New Zealand, has today announced an exciting new partnership with Para Football, the global body for the international federations of different disciplines of Para Football. 

GameDay will be working with Para Football to roll out a next-generation membership and registrations platform, supporting them to develop and grow the global structure, support and connectivity across the multiple disability football styles and organisations.
 A key feature will be the use of GameDay View, to allow Para Football to gain advanced insights into participation across different branches of disability football to help shape global development.
The project will, over time, work across the member partners of Para Football, including 10 sport and international federations – World Amputee Football Federation, International Blind Sports Federation, International Federation of  Cerebral Palsy Football, Football International Federation for Players with Downs Syndrome, World Intellectual Impairment Sport, International Football Committee on Mental Health, Federation Internationale de Powerchair Football  Association, and the International Federation of Skate Soccer – and three further international organisations for sport for the disabled – Cerebral Palsy International Recreation Association, International Wheelchair and Amputee Sports  Federation, and the Sports Union for Athletes with Down Syndrome.
Andy Graham, General Manager for GameDay, said: “What a great, exciting partner for GameDay!  We  love  football,  and  Para  Football  has  such  a  fantastic  commitment  to developing the disability disciplines of the sport around the world. We’re really looking forward to supporting their truly innovative and exciting program across their partner ecosystem, with GameDay providing to their collective worldwide movement.”
Sam Turner, Co-Founder of  Para Football, said: “Para Football was established to support the international federations of Para Football and connect the Para Football community around the world. Supported by GameDay and Stack Sports as our Official Digital Membership and Registration provider, we will be better equipped to support the worldwide growth of football for persons with disabilities.
“The ability to measure and present  the  real  data  around  Para  Football  participation  is  key  to  our  future  success, therefore working with the recognised experts in the field makes absolute sense. Para Football depends upon limited resources and a network of amazing volunteers, therefore partnerships  such  as  this  make  our  work  more  efficient,  effective  and  impactful, ensuring a positive future of football for all.”
