5-a-Side-Soccer


 

5-a-side soccer (blind soccer) is an adapted version of soccer that is played at the Paralympic level by athletes who are blind. The rules of 5-a-side are similar to the rules in able-bodied soccer but here are a few modifications. The ball makes noise when it moves and all players aside from the goalkeeper wears eye shades. the goalkeeper of a team is sighted and also acts as a guide for players in his defensive zone.
