About the project

The Pararoos are Australia’s only national football team for players with cerebral palsy, acquired brain injury or symptoms acquired from stroke.

These players dream about pulling on the green and gold jersey. They live with the challenges of disability every day. Despite the odds, they do what they love – play football.

In 2015, after the Australian Sports Commission withdrew all government funding, Football Federation Australia partnered with the Australian Sports Foundation to establish a tax-deductible fund to raise money to support these extraordinary players.

A target of $375,000 has been established to fund the Pararoos 2019 World Cup Program including national camps, international tournaments, and sports science and coaching.

This tax-deductible fund will raise money to support Australia’s elite footballers with disabilities to ensure they can represent the green and gold at the highest international levels.

The Pararoos are ready to qualify for their 2019 World Cup. But they need your help.

The Pararoos are now calling on you to stand with them and donate to their campaign.

Join the Pararoos on their Road to 2019 World journey here.
