About this Campaign

*Amended goal - Please see below*
The International Federation of CP Football is calling upon our supporters to help raise the funds necessary for the Ukraine National CP Football Team to attend the 2022 World Cup in Barcelona later this month. Only three weeks away, the competition will take place from 26th April to 16th May 2022.

Winners of the Rio 2016 Paralympic Games and 2017 IFCPF World Championships, currently second in the IFCPF World Rankings, Ukraine are one of the top Cerebral Palsy Football teams in the World and deserve to compete at the 2022 IFCPF World Cup in Salou, Barcelona.

Due to the devastating conflict situation in Ukraine, all their funding has been directed to supporting their defences and humanitarian efforts to support innocent civilians.

The Ukraine Paralympic Committee have confirmed that they are able to bring together a team to represent Ukraine in the 2022 IFCPF World Cup, but they need your support.

Now more than ever, demonstrating that Ukraine has the world's support will send a strong message of resilience and unity to their entire nation. Football brings people together from all around the world and is a powerful platform through which to promote peace.

Making donations
In 2018 at the UEFA Champions League Final Fan Festival in Kyiv, we witnessed the inspiration, hope and determination the Ukrainian CP Football Team brings to the people of Ukraine, and most importantly children with disabilities.

Football may be regarded as just a game, but these players were heroes long before the conflict began, and you can be the support they need to continue to inspire their nation’s determination and resilience to succeed.

*Please note that the goal has been amended from 70,000 USD to 63,500 USD after receiving a direct donation*
