Blind Football

Blind Football (B1) is an internationally recognised sport played at the Paralympics. It is played outdoors by athletes who are totally blind (B1) on a 40m x 20m pitch with side kickboards and an audible ball. There are two teams of five; four outfield players and a goalkeeper. The outfield players wear eye-shades to equal their sight and the goalkeeper can be fully or partially sighted.

South Melbourne FC has a blind football team which trains and competes in the National Para 5’s series scheduled to be introduced in June 2021. Players also attend National Training Camps held four times a year to earn a place in the Australian Paralympic squad.

We welcome anyone who is blind, of all ages, all genders and all abilities to join us. You can read more information about this program and how to participate on our Blind Football page. You can keep up-to-date with the teams activities on their Facebook page.

Vision Impaired Football

Partially sighted/vision impaired football (B2/B3) is played by athletes who are vision impaired with rules similar to futsal with particular attention towards ensuring equal light on the court and utilising a futsal ball that provides good contrast with the playing surface.

There is not currently a league for South Melbourne FC to compete in for vision impaired football. Our players train regularly to prepare themselves to represent Victoria in the Partially Sighted Futsal National Championships.

We welcome anyone who is vision impaired, of all ages, all genders and all abilities to join us. You can read more information about this program and how to participate on our Vision Impaired Football page. You can keep up-to-date with the teams activities on their Facebook page.

 

African Refugee Program

South Melbourne FC has a vision for the future and part of that vision needs emerging and dynamic young African Australian footballers. To do so the club has created a bursary program to assist these footballers in achieving their dreams.

This is part of the SMFC focus on community development that extends beyond football and reaches deep into the lives of community members ofVictoria’s culturally diverse communities.
