Find out how the Premier League programme supports pan-disability football as more than 150 young people compete at the PL Kicks Cup

A key part of the Premier League Kicks programme is the pan-disability sessions it provides for young people to enjoy football.

The sessions cover a variety of disciplines, such as autistic, visually impaired and cerebral palsy football, and gives participants the opportunity to develop their skills and confidence.

Recently, this year-round work was celebrated at the inaugural PL Kicks Cup pan-disability tournament, which featured more than 150 young people from 19 Premier League, EFL and National League clubs.

"It's great that the Premier League are giving us opportunities to play football and represent [our clubs] in a PL competition," said one Derby County participant.

"It just shows that anyone can play football and get better."
