Creating an inclusive match day for all

AFC Wimbledon set-up up the Disabled Supporters' Association two years ago

5 March 2020

AFC Wimbledon will on Saturday be celebrating the community work that makes the matchday experience inclusive for everyone.

As it's our designated Level Playing Field Day of Action, players will be wearing T-shirts in the pre-match warm-up to promote it and match day staff will wear pin badges.

Level Playing Field’s Weeks of Action were established in the early 2000s to highlight the positive initiatives undertaken by clubs, sporting venues, governing bodies and disabled sports fans themselves to create an inclusive match day for all. Year on year engagement has increased and 2020 will be the 16th year of the Week of Action. Visit the Level Playing Field website for more information.

Here at AFC Wimbledon, we set-up the Disabled Supporters' Association two years ago and our Chair Jess Barnes features in a video about the importance of creating an inclusive matchday for all. You can take a look at this video below.
