Based in Glasgow Mobility Central supply a huge range of mobility products, advice and solutions to help you get the most out of life. Long time supporters of Powerchair Football in Scotland Mobility Central will sponsor our National Squad for the next three years. This partnership will allow us to focus on developing our national team to enable them to become a competitive team in world of international powerchair football. The first step in this development will be the friendly match in December against Middlesbrough PFC, followed by a trip to Leeds to play in a friendly tournament.
As well as helping us develop the elite side of the game it will allow us to utilise our current funds to develop the game at grassroots level and will therefore benefit all current and new players.

The latest Scotland squad development event was held in Dundee on Saturday, twelve players were put through their paces by coaches Craig Peattie and Garry Johnstone as we build to playing our first Scotland game in December 15th at Largs against English Premiership team Middlesbrough PFC.
