The EFL are currently supporting Level Playing Field’s Weeks of Action which takes place from Saturday 27 February – Sunday 14 March. The annual initiative promotes the importance of access and inclusion for disabled fans across all sports.
EFL Clubs, Disabled Supporters Associations (DSAs) and fans will join together to showcase the good work taking place across the League to support fans with disabilities.
This year’s Weeks of Action will help to raise awareness of the importance of live sport for people with disabilities – both as participants and spectators.
Tony Taylor, Level Playing Field Chair, said: “Our Weeks of Action will showcase that attending a football game is more than simply watching a game. It is about connecting with your community and socialising, providing a positive attitude leading to better physical and mental health. With no supporters in attendance, we know this year’s campaign will look and feel very different. But this pandemic will ease eventually. When it does, we want disabled people to return to live sport in the knowledge that it is safe and accessible for all.”
