 iCAN Football programme

 Suffolk FA’s iCAN Football programme is an inclusive programme which strives to provide footballing opportunities for people in Suffolk of all abilities especially targeted to those with physical, mental or learning impairments and long term health conditions.

The iCAN Football Project hopes to give more disabled people the confidence to enjoy football in a safe environment which promotes fun and inclusively for all people regardless of experience and ability. You don’t need to have played football before to get involved!

SIL Ability Counts Clubs 

Our iCAN Football Programme encourages you to join in and make new friends at your local inclusive football club or have fun at one of our disability school festivals. It’s designed to help you enjoy football with confidence and become part of one of our disability friend football clubs.

We have six clubs across Suffolk which acts as hubs for Ability Counts Football, these clubs provide training and match opportunities for players of a wide range of ability and would love new players to join in with them.
