So we’ve decided to attempt to create the UK’s first ever all Diabetic Futsal team to compete in the DiaEuro tournament ( www.diaeuro.org for more information ). The tournament is open to adults aged 18 or older that can prove they live with Diabetes. We require 10 players, a coach, a physio, a Doctor and a substantial amount of money to cover travel expenses, medical supplies, kit, insurance, accommodation, food and training facilities. To read our announcement in the Diabetes Times click here. Whilst you can also see coverage of our first session together as a team from the local BBC below:
To make this happen we will need the support of all those who follow us in spreading the message. We’re now looking for players, coaches, medical professionals, sponsors and anyone interested in helping us run the project to come forward. If you would like to donate to the project please use the below link:
