Paralympic Football

Football in the Paralympic Games at the moment is for athletes with cerebral palsy. Also, only the men's event is included in the Paraympic program at the moment and it used to just be seven-a-side game but there now is a five-a-side game. The rules of football in the Paralympic games follow the rules of FIFA, but some modifications are made to make it easier and more fun for the athletes' disabilities. Examples include: Throw ins can be made with one arm and there is no offside law
