KISSIMMEE, , FL 34744, UNITED STATES, April 26, 2017 /EINPresswire.com/ -- Soccer in all its forms has quickly gained popularity in the US and Power wheelchair Soccer is no different. In fact, it is about to capture the hearts of all who witness this version of the World’s Most Beautiful Game. The United States Power Soccer Association (USPSA) in collaboration with FIPFA (Federation Internationale de Powerchair Football Association) has the distinct honor of hosting the most elite adaptive competition for the first time on US soil.

The power wheelchair athletes from the top ten teams from across the globe will converge in Florida to compete for the World Championship title that only the USA has so far achieved. The two previous FIPFA World Cups were held in 2006 in Tokyo and 2011 in Paris, France. The U.S. National Power Soccer Team is the only U.S. based soccer team to ever win back-to-back World Cups. “We want to make this 3rd World Cup reflect powerfully on the USA as the host country”, says Dominic Russo, President, USPSA.

This version of the game is sure to capture your heart as finally the most profoundly disabled athletes can play this sport through the power of a joystick. This game is fast, compelling and competitive, and highly inspirational. It is played across the globe, captivating audiences in over 30+ countries and embraces thousands of athletes who once were on the sidelines.

Power soccer is more than a sport, though. It empowers thousands of young people with disabilities to pursue their dreams. This event is a celebration of determination and accomplishment in the face of seemingly insurmountable obstacles.

Wednesday, July 5, marks the opening ceremony followed by the first game, USA v Denmark and will continue through July 9. Team USA will be looking forward to the loyal support of their fans here in the US. The main venue for the tournament will be Silver Spurs Arena, located at Osceola Heritage Park, 1875 Silver Spur Ln, Kissimmee, FL 34744.
