Football’s accessibility group Level Playing Field are highlighting the match-going experience this month as part of its weeks of action campaign.

Focusing on the match day experience of disabled supporters, LPF’s #OurMatchDay events across the country have highlighted the issue of accessibility across English football’s stadiums.

So far multiple events have been held at clubs across the country including LPF guards of honour at matches, disabled supporter group launches, accessibility tours at grounds, invisible disability training and much more.

Chief executive of LPF Owain Davies said: “We hope that by sharing these positive experiences we will not only enhance existing facilities and services but also open opportunities for new disabled fans to engage in live sport.”

Launched last month, the campaign will run till mid-March.
