World Abilitysport Federation

World Abilitysport was born when the International Wheelchair and Amputee Sports Federation (IWAS) and the Cerebral Palsy International Sports and Recreation Association (CPISRA), both founding members of the Paralympic movement, joined forces.


Like all successful organisations, CPISRA and IWAS continued to look for ways to innovate. As two bodies working towards those same goals for people with physical disabilities, in 2020 formal talks between them to merge began in earnest. After ratification by both the CPISRA and IWAS General Assemblies in 2022, on 1 January the following year World Abilitysport was born.


IFCPF, International Federation of CP Football

IFCPF, International Federation of CP Football, is the international governing body for the sport of CP Football. Officially formed in January 2015, CP Football became an independent sport after 37 years under the ‘Cerebral Palsy Sport and Recreation Association’ (CPISRA).
