Football for blind and partially sighted people
Metro is a partner organisation of London Futsal Club. The objective of this partnership is to provide adult partially sighted footballers with the opportunity to train and compete against other partially sighted teams on a regular basis.
The club has at least two training sessions and one competitive tournament per month. Training is held between 10am-1pm at the SCORE Centre on Oliver Road, Leyton, E10 5JY.
Metro Member Everton Amos talks about playing partially sighted futsal with Charlie Raven our sports development officer in the audio podcast below.
