FIPFA are the governing body for powerchair football world wide. FIPFA was established in 2006 after the founding nations came together to write the international rule book, with the inaugural FIPFA Powerchair Football World Cup being held in Tokyo, Japan in 2007.
FIPFA are committed to growing the sport of powerchair football around the globe and introducing more people to our beautiful game. Football should be accessible for everyone!
Power Soccer Shop are the makers of the Strike Force, the premier powerchair for the sport of powerchair football. The Strike Force first hit the market in 2012.
With a move away from day to day powerchairs, the sport has become far safer and can now be played the way it was meant to be played. PowerSoccerShop are also major promoters of the sport, broadcasting international tournaments to the world online.
The Accor Group will ensure our athletes are comfortable throughout the event, with the Pullman and Novotel hotels at Sydney Olympic Park only a short stroll from the competition venue. Accor will also ensure our contingent is well fed.
With countless accommodations the world over, from budget to 5-star, from hotels to serviced apartments, Accor can provide anything you need on your next adventure.

The Quaycentre will host all matches during the 2022 FIPFA Powerchair Football World Cup, as well as providing training and equipment storage for all teams.
Previously known as the State Sports Centre, the Quaycentre played host to the Tae Kwon Do and table tennis at the 2000 Sydney Olympic Games and has also hosted the Invictus Games and IWRF Wheelchair Rugby World Championship. This world class venue will feature two show courts, seating for around 2500 people and 200+ accessible spaces.
Football NSW and Football Federation Australia (FFA) have been long-term supporters of powerchair football, particularly in the push to broaden the reach of inclusive football. One of the greatest strengths of the beautiful game is that people from all walks of life and with all levels of physical ability can play the game. With their expertise organising and hosting major football events, such as the 2015 AFC Asian Cup, we are overjoyed to have the support of both organisations to ensure this is another incredible football event.
Sydney FC and the Western Sydney Wanderers are also lending their expertise to this tournament on top of their ongoing support of their own powerchair football teams in local competitions.
