“After a very productive first-ever forum, we are moving forward to a new era. KPIs helped us identify the gaps in the post-pandemic period, and we introduced a full plan in time. We increase the number of official matches according to all needs; we schedule 3 World Championships for women to meet the criteria for IPC in case of approval for LA28 of the women edition. We will also announce the new UEFA IBSA development plan for more games between emerging countries, women, and U23 national teams. For transparency, we have decided the qualification criteria for the 2028 LA Paralympic Games.” Elias Mastoras, IBSA Football Chairperson

Expressions of interest and full bids should be addressed to IBSA Football Committee Chairperson Elias Mastoras ([email protected]) and to [email protected] by email.

All these championships will give official points for the IBSA Football Ranking.
