CP Sport collected a range of profiles from participants that play CP and/or Frame Football, as well as profiles from coaches, physiotherapists and parents of players to use as promotional material during the 2022 Football World Cup. We aim to encourage more people with CP to take part in sport by sharing positive stories and delivering opportunities.

Name: Emilia Brownlees
Role: Player

What I enjoy about playing football: I enjoy playing and being part of a team with like-minded young adults. I enjoy the interaction with others. In May 2022, I was one of group of girls that travelled to Salou. We were on England development camp which ran alongside the IFCPF World Cup for females. I was very privileged to watch the final.

Impact that football has on my life: Football is all I live for. It has given me more confidence as a person and just makes me determined to be the best I can be.
My ambition in football: My ambition is to one day be apart of an England Girls CP Team that can compete with other international teams.

What would you say to others with CP about playing football: With determination you can achieve your goals, never give up and be the best you can. If I can, you can!
