We have a busy year ahead in the goalball community with major events to prepare for and plenty of tournaments across the year.
Here are our top five things to look out for in 2023:

The IBSA World Games

Held in Birmingham 18-27 August – our GB teams will battle it out at this Paris 2024 Paralympics qualifier, with international goalball taking place, plus many more blind sports competing on home ground. Find out more on the official website.

Goalfix Cup 2023

Showcasing the very best goalball in the UK, the prestigious Goalfix Cup takes place 16 – 18 June in Worcester. The event will be streamed and tickets will be available to attend and watch live in the coming months. Save the date!
