Football 7-a-side has been a part of the Paralympic Games since 1984.
The sport, which is for those with cerebral palsy, is similar to football for able-bodied players with a few modifications. There are seven players on the field at a time rather than 11, the measurements of the playing field are smaller, there is no offside rule and throw-ins may be made with just one hand. Matches consist of two halves of 30 minutes each.
At the London 2012 Games, 64 athletes competed in the sport.
