The Saints Disabled Supporters Association is holding an Open Day and AGM at the Dell Café at St Mary’s Stadium on Thursday 11th July.
Now in its third year of existence, the independent association works closely with Southampton Football Club with the intentions of ensuring a high quality match day experience for disabled fans. The SDSA has grown significantly in number since its formation, and continues to go from strength to strength, thanks to the support of the Club and the Saints Foundation who also help to arrange visits from First Team players to a variety of events.
Entry to the forthcoming Open Day is free of charge, and fellow disabled organisations are invited to attend. It begins at 2pm and runs until approximately 6.45 p.m.
There will even be a prize-draw taking place, with the chance to win a 32" TV as well as a host of Saints related memorabilia, donated by the Saints Foundation as well as the likes of Mick Channon, Iwan Thomas MBE, Tiff Needell & Sky Sports presenter Ed Chamberlin.
Other attractions include: limited tours of the stadium, the opportunity to meet a current first team player, and a special appearance from former Saints legend, and 1976 FA Cup winner, Nick Holmes.
The Saints Disabled Supporters Association is primarily a self-funding independent Association for Southampton Football Club disabled supporters, but welcomes any supporter who wishes to join. The Association has been in existence for nearly three years, and works tirelessly to improve the experience for Saints fans with disabilities and has many more ambitions for the future.
The Open Day promises to be a terrific opportunity to learn more about the SDSA and its links to the club.
