Connections Disability Football

Spartans Connections is the disability section of The Spartans Community Football Academy. We welcome players who have a wide range of disabilities including physical and learning disabilities and mental health challenges.

Connections provides skill and fitness-focused football training sessions in a fun, social atmosphere. We run adult and youth sections. We compete in seven-a-side teams in the Scottish Football Association Pan-Disability Leagues and national competitions. Our teams are mixed gender although we are actively looking to recruit more women to join us. 

If you are looking for wheelchair or powerchair football, please contact Lothian Disability Sport to find out what's available in Edinburgh.

Connections train every Thursday at The Spartans Community Football Academy:

  • 10.30am to Noon: adults  (16 years+) 
  • 12.30am to 2pm: youth (up to 16 years)
  • 4.30pm to 6pm: adults (16 years+)
