The Sao Paulo Amputee Soccer Team meet every friday night to train at the Worker´s Union Social Club in the Vila Maria neighborhood. The team is the first to be formed in the city of Sao Paulo and was founded in 2015 by Wellington Lopes, Ewerton Moreno and Marcelo Souza after they spent years traveling one hour and a half one way,  once or even twice a week to reach the city of Mogi das Cruzes for the nearest gathering of amputees soccer training in the state of Sao Paulo. Last year, in 2016, a new team was formed in Sao Paulo due to high demand.

Nowadays there are 11 official amputee soccer teams in Brazil and a National team. With no official sponsoring, the Sao Paulo team members strive to keep up their personal recoveries and their morale upon the distress to fund their gatherings and the lack of opportunities for the handicapped community in a country that has just recently hosted the biggest sports event in the world. 

*In 2016 the two teams from Sao Paulo formed the “Ball Foward National Association” ( Associacao Bola pra Frente) to seek partners and funders of the project and to better structure themselves.

El Equipo de Futbol de Amputados de Sao Paulo se reúne todos los viernes por la noche para entrenar en el Club Social del Sindicato de Trabajadores en el barrio de Vila María. Es el primer equipo que se forma en la ciudad de Sao Paulo y fue fundado en 2015 por WellingtonLopes, Ewerton Moreno y Marcelo Souza después de pasar años viajando una hora y media, una vez o incluso dos veces por semana, para llegar a la Ciudad de Mogi das Cruzes para el encuentro más cercano de entrenamiento de futbol para amputados en el estado de Sao Paulo. El año pasado, en 2016, se formó un nuevo equipo en Sao Paulo debido a la alta demanda.

Actualmente hay 11 equipos oficiales de amputados en Brasil y una Selección Nacional. Sin un patrocinador oficial, los miembros del equipo de Sao Paulo se esfuerzan por continuar con su recuperación personal y mantener en alto su confianza ante la angustia de financiar sus encuentros y de la falta de oportunidades para la comunidad de discapacitados en un país que acaba de celebrar el mayor evento deportivo del mundo.

*En 2016 los dos equipos de Sao Paulo formaron la “Asociación de Bola para el Frente” (Associacao Bola pra Frente) para buscar socios y personas que financien el proyecto, y para una mejor estructura de los miembros.
