Quite incredible.
How do they prevent themselves from colliding with the other players?

Who knows, I would love to see a full game to find out.

What an example in dedication. Some of our Premiership players could learn something from this.
Thanks for sharing it Si_L.

Blind sports are well catered for in the UK. The football link is great but check out the ‘sports sections’ on the British Blind Sports web site, plenty of choice there and obviously some extremely dedicated people in both participation and assistance.
