Blind Football Egypt

For the first time in Egypt, a new concept in sports has taken place; Blind Football. Blind Football Egypt is a sport or team in which those who have a disability whether it be mentally or physically can unite and play a sport they all love. The goal is to emphasize equality through sport(s) and prove that you don’t need to see or be 100% healthy physically and mentally to play just as well as those who are. There are some changes in how the game works, such as the team being made up of five players instead of eleven. On Friday, March 13, 2015, Blind Football Egypt’s very first event will take place at DEO (Deutsche Evangelische Oberschule). More details can be found on Blind Football Egyt’s Facebook page
