MPs to hear evidence on stadium accessibility

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

This week MPs will be examining the issue of stadium accessibility.

The Culture, Media and Sport Select Committee will be hearing evidence tomorrow, Tuesday 24th May, about inadequate or inappropriate faciltiies and access for disabled fans at sports grounds.

Baroness Grey-Thompson will be among those giving evidence to the Committee, along with representatives from Level Playing Field –  chair Joyce Cook and general manager Ruth Hopkins.

Despite best practice guidelines being in place, campaigners are concerned that football clubs are only doing the bare minimum that is legally required.

MPs are on the Committee are also interested in taking submissions from the public on the issue – both personal experiences and general views.
