Clyde Powerchair FC was launched in 2012, in partnership with Active Schools Glasgow, Active Schools North Lanarkshire and the former Glasgow Powerchair FC.
Powerchair football is a mixed gender sport that can be played by people of all ages in a power wheelchair. It is a fast-moving sport which has been played in various forms across the world since the 1970s.
Powerchair football started in Glasgow in 2010 with the launch of a pilot programme through Active Schools Glasgow and Renfrewshire, to determine if there was an interest in the sport. Early sessions were attended by a handful of players but steadily grew to attract over 25 registered players. In early 2012, work began to move from a local authority run session to a standalone club, which brought about the partnership with Clyde FC.
Clyde Powerchair FC is based at St Maurice's School in Cumbernauld.
Clyde supporter Robert Sweeney is the driving force behind the initiative becoming part of the club's expanding community football operation and the club is proud to become part of the growth of powerchair football, with the aim of raising its profile and participation.
