Azeem Amir is a professional blind footballer who plays for England as well as an entrepreneur. Azeem was born with a visual impairment and faced many challenges playing sports at school until he discovered blind football at the age of 15. After being scouted at a talent camp, the sport which began as a hobby became his career.
Following his undergraduate degree in Sports Management at the University of Salford, Azeem set up his own business. Launching in 2021, ‘Learn with ESS’ (Education, Sport and Speaking) aims to raise awareness of disabilities by delivering motivational talks throughout the UK. Azeem also provides interactive training and activities that demonstrate how people with a range of impairments can take part in and enjoy sports. ESS has been a huge success and Azeem hopes in the future he can take it international.
