Centre for Access to Football in Europe wants to hear from disabled fans

This is a story from the FSF archive – the FSF and SD merged to become the FSA in 2019.

The Centre for Access to Football in Europe is running a survey to gauge the opinion of disabled people on the current practices in terms of ‘proof of disability’ requirements when tickets for national and international sporting events.

The survey forms parts of a research project being undertaken by the European-wide charity in association with the German Sports Institute of Cologne.

The project will provide conclusive recommendations to assist international sporting event owners in delivering an improved ticketing system for both disabled sports fans and tournament operators in the future.

If you would like help completing this confidential survey, please contact CAFE at info@cafefootball.eu or call +44 (0)1244 893 586.

The survey closes at 5pm (CET) on 1st October 2013.
