Help Send Powerchair Football's Team Canada to the  2017 World Cup!!

Powerchair Football Canada (PFC) is the national organization overseeing and promoting the sport of Powerchair Football in Canada.   Powerchair football, aka PowerSoccer is a fast paced, competitive sport for people of all ages who use powerchairs.  Power soccer has been played in Canada since the early 80′s and has evolved significantly. 

From July 3rd until July 10th 2017, Canada’s Powerchair Football team will be in Kissimmee, Florida competing at the 2017 FIPFA Powerchair Football World Cup.  The World Cup takes place every 4-6 years and at the most recent event (2011 World Cup in Paris, France) Canada finished 6th overall. Due to no government funding,  Team Canada has had to rely on sponsorships and donations.  We need your help!

Sending a national team to the World Cup is an exciting but expensive opportunity.  Team costs include:

*Tournament registration (which generally includes food, lodging and ground transportation)
*Flights for team members, their personal care aides (as players require help to undertake day to day activities), coaches and team staff, 
*Travel, medical and sport insurance,  
*Medical equipment (hospital bed and hoyer lift rentals),  
*Team Canada uniforms and sports equipment,  
*Administration costs prior to and at the tournament. 

With your help we know we can fuel a team and give players the opportunity of a lifetime.  Please help us spread our campaign all across Canada.
