RNC Hosts Europe's Top Blind Footballers



The cream of European blind football will be in the UK on Saturday (March 30) for Round 3 clash of the European Blind Football League (EBFL).

 

The Champions League-style event will see Europe's finest blind footballers – many of whom will be vying for glory at the Paralympics later this year – battle it out at the Royal National College for the Blind (RNC) in Hereford.

 

The tournament boasts a prestigious line-up, featuring:

• Bondy Cécifoot Club (Paris, France)• Cécifoot Charleroi (Belgium)• Borussia Dortmund (Germany)• Pirsos Thessaloniki (Greece)• ASDD Roma (Italy)• RNC Hereford (England).


The home team, RNC Hereford, currently dominates the League with a perfect record after two convincing victories in Rome earlier this month, putting them ahead of last year’s champions, Cécifoot Charleroi.


Adding another dimension to the excitement, RNC players are tearing up the goalscorers' table, with a staggering five players in the top 10. Leading the pack is RNC's very own Eesa Amjid, boasting an impressive five goals after just two rounds.


“This tournament provides a fantastic platform for RNC's talented young squad to gain invaluable international experience and showcase their skills on a grand stage,” said Adam Bendall, RNC's Head Coach.


“Blind football is a fast-paced and exhilarating sport, and this event features some of Europe's best players. We're honoured to host this competition, welcome the public, and raise awareness for this incredible sport.”
