NEWS: Coventry City supporting Level Playing Field 'Unite for Access' campaign this Monday

25 February 2024

Coventry City will show their support for the Level Playing Field ‘Unite For Access’ campaign at this Monday’s Emirates FA Cup tie against Maidstone United.

The Sky Blues host the Stones on Monday 26th February at the Coventry Building Society Arena, when we will be underlining our support for the campaign and for improving access for disabled supporters.

The Level Playing Field 'Unite For Access' campaign is an annual period of inspiration and celebration of good access and inclusion at sports venues. The 2024 campaign will run from Saturday 24th February to Sunday 10th March.

Sky Blues stars were on hand earlier this month to meet members of the Club’s new Disabled Supporters Association, ahead of the Unite For Access campaign period.

Established in partnership with the Football Club and Level Playing Field, the purpose of the Association is to represent the views of disabled fans throughout the Club.

While not a Supporters Club, the new DSA will work in partnership with the Club and Level Playing Field to improve the matchday experience for all disabled supporters and help forge better relationships and ongoing communication between the Sky Blues and disabled fans.

The Club will be profiling the DSA in our programme versus Maidstone, as well as showing its support for the campaign on the scoreboard and tannoy and throughout matchday.

Here at Coventry City, we are working to improve the matchday experience and access for our disabled supporters – both wheelchair and ambulant disabled fans.

The Sky Blues have taken a number of steps forward to already improve the experience for disabled fans in recent years – including running Disabled Supporters Forums, improving the ticket purchasing experience and establishing the Sensory Room, while Sky Blues in the Community run a number of projects and programmes that engage with disabled fans and members of our local area.

Owner and Executive Chairman Doug King said:

“As a Club, we believe that all people should be able to attend live sports, regardless of disability.

“We are committed to making Coventry City accessible to all, and will continue to work hard to continue to improve the matchday experience for these supporters.”
