The Pararoos are Australia’s only national team for players with cerebral palsy, acquired brain injury or symptoms of stroke.
We are proud to pull on the green and gold jersey to represent our country and the millions of Australian living with disability.
In 2015, after the Australian Sports Commission withdrew all government funding, FFA partnered with the Australian Sports Foundation (ASF) to create this project to raise funds to support our journey.
Just like our Caltex Socceroos and Westfield Matildas team mates, playing football on the world stage requires high quality coaching staff, sports science, regular domestic training camps and international match experience.
Your donation makes this possible.
But this is more than football.
We are UNDEFEATED by our disability and we are determined to CHANGE THE GAME.
Win, lose or draw, we want to use football to empower, break down barriers and create a more inclusive society.
Your donation makes this a reality.

Ben Roche: What it means to be a Pararoo: Being a Pararoo gives me an opportunity to support others with disabilities. It has taught me to be a father, a husband and role model it creates extraordinary individuals and shows anything is possible."
