Since the start of blind football in the Paralympic games in 2004, Brazil has been too good. They are the defending champions since they won the Paralympic gold in 2016. The games were held in Rio de Janeiro back then. After Brazil, Argentina bagged the bronze and secured its third place.
Brazil is also the reigning champion of the world cup. And after Argentina stood in the second position at the world cup, their position was also sure in the Paralympic 2020 games. However, Thailand wasn’t on the list.
Iran was the choice, but the National Paralympic Committee (NPC) of Iran announced that it wouldn’t send the team to the Paralympic Games 2020. And that’s why the team isn’t in the games this time. Later, when the National Paralympic Committee (NPC) changed their mind, the deadline had expired.
So as per the predictions by UFABET, in place of Iran, Thailand got the spot in the Paralympic 2020 games. The event will be a changing point in the blind football games, as it is the first time Thailand will compete with the biggies like Brazil and Argentina.
The Paralympic games 2020 starts from August 25th, in Tokyo. But the blind football matches will commence on August 30. The group matches will take place for the next three days. After that, there will be the semi-final on September 3rd and the final on September 5th.
Blind football was first added to the Paralympic games in 2004 when it was held in Athens. Since then, Brazil has been the winners of the title for years. Thailand seeks to leave an impact in the tournament, and make a place for themselves.
