Bend it like Beckham?
Fancy pitting your football skills against one of the most successful footballers in UK history? A man who has scored goals all across the world? No, not David Beckham, but Paralympics GB Visually Impaired Football Captain Dave Clarke.
Well now is your chance. Sainsbury's, the first ever Paralympic Games only sponsor, has created a brand new online football game to celebrate the skill and dedication involved in playing Visually Impaired football- the world's first ever online Blind Football Game.
Sainsbury's Active Kids and London 2012 Paralympic Games Ambassador David Beckham is also backing the scheme, encouraging players to take part and even offering up the shirt off his back as a prize for taking part.
Earlier this year David Beckham tried out Blind Football with Paralympics GB 5-a-side Captain Dave Clarke, and now it's your chance to see how you measure up.
The innovative new game allows players to experience what it's like to play the exciting and highly skilled game of Blind Football, the first of its kind showcasing this complex Paralympic sport.
Undertaking a series of challenges – including learning how to pass, tackle, dribble and shoot – users have to rely on the sounds they hear instead of sight. Using innovative 3D sound, players get a truly immersive game experience giving a real taste of what it's like to play Blind Football and you can try it out right here, right now!
