Vienna, Austria, will stage a blind football two-day training camp followed by a tournament between 3-7 May 2017, aimed at women and girls to develop the female game.

This event is organised by the International Blind Sports Federation (IBSA) in partnership with the Austrian Disability Sports Federation, and is part of the UEFA-backed IBSA Blind Football Development Project Europe.

It will be open to women and girls who want to get involved in any role in the sport, whether as players, referees, guides, coaches, medical staff, support staff or in administrative roles.

IBSA is hoping to have women from three continents taking part in this event. Project funding will cover the cost of accommodation, meals and local transport for participants from European nations.
