South Melbourne FC’s blind team have been crowned Australian Champions in the National Blind Football Series, Football Victoria has reported.

The team drew 1-1 with Brisbane’s Olympic FC over the weekend during a match at The Hangar, the home of Essendon Football Club.

South Melbourne FC conceded early to a penalty, but the squad fought back and in the second half equalised from open play thanks to Captain Amir Abdi.

The Club said in a statement that players will now “shift their focus to making the Australian squad competing in the Asian Cup in November.”

South Melbourne FC’s success comes after the blind football team put in another dominating performance to defeat Brisbane Olympic FC 2-0 in May this year.
