The IBSA European Blind Football European Championships 2015

The IBSA Blind Football European Championships 2015 will be held at thePoint4 at the Royal National College for the Blind from 22-29 August 2015


This event will take place from 22 – 29 August 2015 at thePoint4, the international standard facilities of RNC (Royal National College for the Blind). Ten teams will compete to become Champions of Europe. The additional excitement surrounding this event is that only the top two teams will secure a place to compete in the Paralympics in Rio – so there is everything to play for.

Jon Pugh, the Head Coach of the England Team, is a Hereford man. Jon has worked as Assistant Coach for many years, taking over as Head Coach in February 2014. He has not lost a match since and was recently named the FA’s Disability Coach of the Year.  Jon’s team include several players who competed in the Paralympics 2012 and they are increasingly being regarded as a team to watch.

Teams taking part are from England, Germany, Russia, Turkey, France, Spain, Italy, Belgium, Poland and Greece. This is the biggest Euros to date. The teams will stay on campus, in an athletes’ village environment. Volunteers drawn from the local Community and beyond will support the teams, the activities and the spectators

The all weather pitch will be surrounded by stands seating 700+ spectators, and the entry/exit point will take the form of a spectator “street village” with catering, entertainment and Have  A Go opportunities, making this a real family event.  There are 4 or 5 matches each day, and if the pattern of 2010 is repeated, we anticipate that over 9,000 people will view the matches. Children from local primary schools are taking part in a legacy programme and some of them will be our mascots and flag bearers on the opening day.

More information is available and tickets are on sale at

We need over 100 volunteers (or stewards) for this event. If you are over 16 on 20 August and want to get involved please e mail for an application pack to

SPORT ENGLAND Sports clubs get helping hand

Sports clubs are at the heart of community sport – so we want to look after those who run them. That’s why we’ve launched Club Matters – which provides free and practical help to those involved with a grassroots club.

Whether they’re a club chair writing a plan to attract new members, a treasurer managing budgets or a club captain asking existing members what they want, Club Matters can help their clubs to thrive.

Guidance and support

At its core is a simple website with all the essential resources – but it extends way beyond the keypad. Club Matters provides the following support to clubs:

  • Mentoring – Either for long-term support, or just a short call to sound out ideas, Club Matters’ flexible mentoring scheme offers personal support at a time and place to suit.
  • Club Improvement Plans – Online resource for clubs of all sizes and at all stages of their development, to establish where they are performing well and where they can develop.
  • Club Views – A club survey tool helping users to ask members and volunteers what they think about their club, and make suggestions.
  • Clubmark – The nationally-acknowledged accreditation scheme for community sports clubs. As part of Clubmark accreditation, clubs will have the opportunity to request a Club Matters mentor to help them through the accreditation process.
  • Online Support – Help and guidance in all areas of running a sports club. This includes online toolkits, quick reference guides and e-learning modules.
