The teams that form the National CP Football Adult League are looking forward to a bigger and better finals day event thanks to a new partnership with Irwin Mitchell.

Irwin Mitchell and Cerebral Palsy Sport (CP Sport) have a strong history of working together to support people with cerebral palsy and associated physical disabilities access sporting opportunities at a local level, and supporting them to go on and reach their potential.

CP Sport is the country’s leading national disability sports charity supporting people with cerebral palsy and associated physical impairments to reach their life potential through sport and putting people with cerebral palsy and their families at the heart of everything we do.

Irwin Mitchell has a strong track-record of supporting disability sports through its Don’t Quit, Do It campaign. The firm works closely with Paralympic gold-medallist Hannah Cockroft MBE and sponsors the English Amputee Football Association among other sports groups and organisations.

This latest partnership sees Irwin Mitchell support the CP Sports National CP Adult Football League Finals to be held on the 2nd June 2018. The finals bring together nine teams from across the country, who will have been competing at regional fixtures between October 17 - April 18.

Ali Talbot CEO of CP Sport said: “The support of Irwin Mitchell means we can make the finals a bigger and better event than ever before.  We’re confident that those involved will have a fantastic day.

“Sponsorships from organisations such as Irwin Mitchell go a long way in helping us to achieve our aim of raising aspirations, promoting inclusion and supporting people with cerebral palsy and other disabilities to play, participate and enjoy sport and active recreation.”

Expert Opinion
We’ve seen how much disability sports can help our clients with their rehabilitation and recovery both physically and psychologically, especially when they are involved in team sports and events.

“We wanted to combine our Don’t Quit, Do It campaign to get more people involved in disability sports with our ongoing support for those families affected by cerebral palsy. The CP Sport Adult Football League finals is the perfect event to help celebrate the achievements of all those involved and help people to reach their potential. We’re really looking forward to June and seeing what the finals day has in store.”
