Swans kick off 'Weeks of Action' against Bolton

1st March 2019

Swansea City kick off Level Playing Field's 'Weeks of Action' at Saturday's home game against Bolton.

The 15th annual Level Playing Field (LPF) ‘Weeks of Action’ ’ is a fortnight dedicated to shining a positive light on the work undertaken to deliver better access for disabled sport spectators.

Sadly, more than 50% of disabled people have never attended a live sporting event and, at Swansea City AFC, we’re passionate about trying to change that.

The event is set to get under way with clubs, disabled supporters associations (DSAs) and fans joining together to celebrate the matchday experience for disabled fans.

From March 2-17 the Swans will join the EFL and the world of football in raising awareness of the facilities and support available for disabled people to attend live football.

‘Weeks of Action’ starts this Saturday with the home fixture against Bolton Wanderers, where both clubs will show their support for the campaign during the warm up.

As part of the initiative Swansea City have invited disabled supporters from schools, disability sports clubs and individuals to experience Saturday's matchday at the Liberty Stadium.

To raise awareness, members of the Jack Army share their experiences and stories on what good accessibility with a special feature in the Matchday Programme from Richard Haselgrove and Swans TV with Cara’s Matchday as the team catch up with Swans Supporter Cara Readle.

For more information on facilities at the Liberty Stadium take a look at our special behind-the-scenes feature for Day of Disabilities.
