FC Groningen: Pioneer of frame football
FC Groningen is the first pro-club in the Netherlands where you can play football using a mobility frame. Sergio Padt, goalkeeper and captain of FC Groningen: "It's a great way for the kids to play with others at a similar skill level."
"As a footballer player you're always trying to find your level. For some that's top-flight football while for others it's amateur level. For children with a disability that was always more difficult. This is all about them having fun and they certainly seem to be!", says Padt.
