About this goal

Now that football on a recreational basis is in state, nothing stands in the way of offering the players 5v5 or 8v8-formats, on a regular basis. Disability football, football for girls, 35+ football, regional youth football and youth futsal are hoping for a boost. Clubs are getting extra possibilities and the players get more individual chances.

ACFF & VFV: Promoting disability football

In 2014, the VFV and the ACFF have undertaken actions to promote disability football:

  • The ACFF organized a half day of CECIFOOT, where G-football players participated in a 5-a-side tournament with football celebrities.
  • 54 G-teams played an exceptional tournament at Football Kick-Off by the VFV also with the help of some football celebrities
Thanks to these actions, the gap with regular football got a little closer.

During this training, the club officials have discovered this rapidly developing discipline. Simulation exercises were also planned to illustrate its principles.

VFV: training technical managers for young players

The technical managers for young players can always learn, teach and share with their colleagues from other clubs. The VFV is trying to support this by planning workshops for those managers twice a year.
