Do they also use the same blind referees as in regular football:)

Quite incredible.
How do they prevent themselves from colliding with the other players?

Who knows, I would love to see a full game to find out.

What an example in dedication. Some of our Premiership players could learn something from this.
Thanks for sharing it Si_L.

Blind sports are well catered for in the UK. The football link is great but check out the ‘sports sections’ on the British Blind Sports web site, plenty of choice there and obviously some extremely dedicated people in both participation and assistance.

Some of the links, stories and background info make you feel inadequate as a sighted person when it comes to personal effort and determination in life.
