The IBSA Blind Football Coaching Manual: a guide for beginners, published at the beginning of this year, has been translated into Portuguese and Russian to maximise its use worldwide.

The manual is a key resource for new trainers, physical education teachers and others interested in coaching blind football. It targets beginners and sets out the basic principles involved in coaching players who are blind or partially sighted skills in blind (B1) football.

The translation project is part of the IBSA Football Committee's efforts to facilitate blind football development worldwide. The committee hopes to be able to provide translations to other languages such as French and Spanish in the near future.

We are grateful to ANDDVIS (Portuguese National Sports Association for People with a Visual Impairment) and Arsen Bulekov for the translations.

The original, English-language version of the manual was published as part of the UEFA-sponsored IBSA Blind Football Development Project Europe.
