JD Welsh Premier League supporting Level Playing Field Weeks of Action

14th annual week of action celebrates the matchday experience for disabled fans

The JD Welsh Premier League is once again supporting Level Playing Field (LFP) in their Weeks of Action.

The 14th annual (LPF) Weeks of Action is set to get underway with clubs, disabled supporters associations (DSAs) and fans joining together to celebrate the matchday experience for disabled fans.

From the 2nd – 17th March there will be an array of matchday and non-matchday activities hosted by sports clubs that shine a light on the good work that is done to improve the enjoyment and experience of disabled sports fans.

Disabled people are the largest minority group in any population, and with sport having such a unique capacity to bring people together, accessible and inclusive stadia are essential for disabled people to take their rightful places and to participate fully within our society.

For this to be possible, it is important to remove stereotypes and for all barriers to inclusion to be removed whether they be societal, physical, sensory, intellectual or attitudinal.

Weeks of Action is a celebration of those who make access and inclusion for disabled sports fans a reality, whilst also recognising that there is much work still left to do. This is a chance to celebrate the matchday experience for disabled
fans.

We hope shining a light on the positives of attending a live matchday will help remove those barriers and promote a culture of accessibility and inclusiveness within sport.

Put simply, changing the game for disabled people changes lives.
