TEHRAN - The International Federation for Cerebral Palsy Football (IFCPF) secretary general Sam Turner praised the organization of the IFCPF Asia-Oceania Championship.

The competition has brought Iran, Australia, Jordan, South Korea and Thailand together in Kish Island in southern Iran in Persian Gulf.

“The organization of the IFCPF Asia-Oceania Championship in Kish Island is very good and I think the organizers are doing well to host the event,” Turner said.

Asked him about the level of the competition, the Englishman said, “The level of the competition is high and some good teams are competing for their places in the 2019 IFCPF World Cup in Spain.”

2018 IFCPF Asia-Oceania Championships is an important event for the participants since the top two teams will advance directly to the 2019 IFCPF World Cup – Pinto Madrid, Spain.

IFCPF became the official IF for cerebral palsy football following the sport realizing its independence from January 1 in 2015, after 37 years, from the Cerebral Palsy International Sport and Recreation Association.
