UKYOPD FC Formed
We are a team of footballers who are challenged by Parkinson’s Disease, mostly Young Onset Parkinson’s Disease (YOPD).
UKYOPD FC are representing the UK at The Ray Kennedy Cup in Copenhagen, Denmark on Saturday 31st August 2019 at 2pm.
The tournament is a 7 a side football tournament and is the European Football Championships for Parkinson’s sufferers.
There will be between 10-14 teams from Denmark, Sweden, UK, Germany, France and Norway.
The team consists of people from England, Wales and Northern Ireland, all from different backgrounds and vocation, but the togetherness and friendships formed are second to none.
We are all keen to raise awareness of the condition and raise funds for the Cure Parkinson’s Trust:
