London Paralympics: Football 7-a-sideThe London 2012 Paralympics Football 7-a-side competition takes place at the new Hockey Centre in the Olympic Park from Saturday 1 to Sunday 9 September and is played by athletes with cerebral palsy. Eight men's teams will take part in a 20-match tournament that starts with a round robin phase before four teams progress to the semi-finals. Like the 5-a-side format, there are no offsides, but throw-ins may be made with one hand only. All teams must be made up of ambulant cerebral palsy athletes, while each side must maintain a line-up featuring player with varying levels of disability. Pitches are around 70m by 50m, each half lasts 30 minutes and the goals are smaller than regular football goals: 5m by 2m. The Ukraine are the reigning Paralympic champions after beating Russia 2-1 in time-added-on during Beijing 2008. Football 7-a-side has been part of the Paralympic programme since making its debut in 1984.
