About the project

The Pararoos are our national football team for athletes with Cerebral Palsy, Acquired Brain Injury or symptoms of stroke. Government funding for the Pararoos was withdrawn in 2014. Without significant funding, the Pararoos will be unable to compete at the 2019 World Cup and will eventually be forced from the field entirely. The Pararoos squad deserve the chance to compete at the highest level just like their Socceroos and Matildas colleagues. We need your help to make sure the Pararoos can achieve this goal. The Pararoos partnership with the Australian Sports Foundation will raise money through tax deductible donations to help ensure they remain on the pitch. Everyone can donate to the Pararoos – businesses, football fans and everyday Australians –every dollar raised will go directly to the Pararoos. And every donation over $2 is tax deductible. Donating to the Pararoos will not only help get the team to the 2019 World Cup and beyond, but it will also encourage many more aspiring disabled footballers to continue to strive for their dream. Together, we can do this.
