The Partially Sighted Football League announces independence

After a long and successful relationship, the Partially Sighted Football League has announced that from the 2018/2019 season forward, they will operate independently from British Blind Sport.

For over 20 years, British Blind Sport has brought in funding contributing to the delivery of key league and cup events, providing high quality football competition for partially sighted people nationwide. In addition, the Partially Sighted Football League has benefitted from British Blind Sport expertise in development and governance, ensuring that the league and their teams remain healthy and safe.

Alaina MacGregor, CEO of British Blind Sport said, “It is a sad day for British Blind Sport to see the PSFL going it alone, however we are very proud to have supported them to where they are today and they now have the infrastructure and confidence to be able to operate independently. We wish them all the best for the future and look forward to supporting the new-look PSFL.”

British Blind Sport continue to deliver activities in archery, cricket, tenpin bowling and shooting and have a membership of over 1000 people with visual impairments. Many of these activities are delivered by BBS volunteers with support from BBS staff. We are very grateful for those volunteer’s time and dedication in providing excellent opportunities for people with visual impairments to have active lifestyles.
