Following a very successful training weekend working with local players and coaches in the Georgian capital of Tbilisi last weekend, the Caucasian country is set to make its mark on the blind football world.

The weekend began with a press conference at the Georgian Ministry of Sport and Youth Affairs which was attended by several written press and TV journalists. Then it was straight on to the training ground where Ulrich Pfisterer, an experienced blind football coach and Chair of the IBSA Football Committee, started working with local players.

The players and local coaches benefitted greatly from the weekend, learning new skills, techniques and training drills.

The training weekend was held as part of the IBSA Blind Football Development Project Europe, which receives financial support from UEFA. For more information on the project contact [email protected].
