Iran is in contention to dethrone the South American powerhouses in the 2018 International Blind Sports Federation (IBSA) Blind Football World Championships.

16 teams to compete at World Championships in Madrid next June, Paralympic.org wrote.

Three-time Paralympic medallists Argentina, Rio 2016 runners-up Iran and European champions Turkey are all in contention to dethrone the South American powerhouses.

 

 


Sixteen teams will compete in the tournament overall, and even though reigning Paralympic and world champions Brazil are the strong favorites, the rest of the teams are not just there to make up the numbers.

The 2018 IBSA Blind Football World Championships will take place in Madrid, Spain, between 5-18 June.

The Worlds will have a 16-team expanded format. The first stage will feature four groups of four teams, with the top two in each group qualifying for the quarter-final.
