The Football Club Social Alliance (FCSA) – a partnership of top European professional football clubs - have been involved in disability football since its inception in 2007, when the very first Special Youth Camp took place in Liechtenstein. The Special Youth Camp, having celebrated its 10th anniversary in July 2016, is a football and recreational camp for youth with mental and/or physical disabilities, which now takes place annually in Switzerland and Germany.

Since 2010, the disability football concept evolved to incorporate an educational programme for Young Coaches, which has consequently enriched the outcome of the initiative. This Tandem Young Coach Education Programme takes place prior to the Special Youth Camp, giving persons with or without a disability, who are interested in football and wish to become coaches, the practical and theoretical experience they need to start a coaching career in disability football.
