England Amputee Football Association 2017 Rebrand:
EAFA are delighted to announce the launch of an exciting new badge and streamlining of the charities operation.
The new badge is an evolution of the current shield design, incorporating the roundel shape of the GBAF national team badge. The central image features the late national squad captain Tom Jordan and aims to inspire and illustrate what the charity is all about.
After 11 years the EAFA administrated GBAF team will come back under the EAFA banner and compete as the England Amputee Team using the new badge. The GBAF project was launched with a view to growing the popularity of the sport across the home nations. EAFA is proud to say that under the GB banner we have done our absolute best to support the growth of the sport in not only Scotland & Ireland, but across Europe.
With the recent creation of a part time national officer, it really is an exciting time for the charity and EAFA can focus all its efforts on the domestic game and increasing participation under an exciting new badge.
