Following a number of successful Autism- friendly event and initiatives Swansea City AFC is delighted to introduce a Sensory Room as part of our Matchday Facilities.
Swansea City’s sensory room allows supporters, who may find the environment uncomfortable to come and enjoy the match at their own pace. Supporters view the match from inside the sensory room while also being able to sit in the stand, safe in the knowledge that they are able to return to the sensory room, should they become overwhelmed.
Our journey to introducing a sensory room began in February 2017 in partnership with our Disabled Supporters Association (DSA). Since that time the Club has engaged with a number of organisations to introduce ASD-friendly facilities including:
- ASD Parents Guides and Picture story – for general Matchday advice
- Ear Defenders
- Club Shop ‘quiet hour’
In April 2019, through investment from the Premier League, the BT Disability Fund, and The Shippey Campaign funding the Club secured to support the installation of a sensory room.
Cost (this is the same price as general admission tickets)
