European Blind Football Championships confirmed
Date: February 25, 2013
The Italian town of Loano, close to Genoa in the Savona region, has been confirmed as the host for this year's B1 (totally blind) IBSA European Football Championships.
The 9th IBSA Blind Football European Championships 2013 will take place from June 12th until June 23rd.
Competition will be tight with the Paralympic silver and bronze medal winners from London 2012 – France and Spain – facing tough competition from traditional rivals England and other teams.
Further information, including entry forms and the competition schedule, will be posted here as it becomes available.
Spain won the first six IBSA European Championships. France, having won the seventh championships on home soil in 2009 and successfully defended the title in Turkey in 2011, will be looking to make it three-in-a-row.
