Today we’re asking you to 'Unite For Access', to support the launch of Level Playing Field’s new campaign.
Level Playing Field is the leading charity advocating for disabled sports fans in England and Wales and Unite for Access is the charity’s latest initiative to shine a light on accessibility in sports.
An estimated 22% of the UK population are disabled and yet many disabled sports fans feel that attending live events isn’t possible, due to the environmental and societal barriers they face.
Level Playing Field’s most recent fan survey found that 28.5% of disabled sports fans considered the attitudes of others to be a barrier when attending live sport, and more than a third said they’re unable to attend certain sports or sporting venues due to lack of accessibility.
We as a club believe football is for everyone and we want to help break down any barriers which stop this being a reality.
'Unite For Access' is a celebration of accessibility and inclusion and we hope you’ll support us in making football accessible for everyone.
