Rotherham United are delighted to be working alongside Level Playing Field, who have announced the launch of their 2019 Weeks of Action, showcasing the work that is being done to bring about the goal of access for all at sporting events.
Level Playing Field Chair, Tony Taylor, said:
“We are working with governing bodies in a range of sports in England and Wales to promote greater access and inclusion. We are pleased to have teamed up with EFL Championship club, Rotherham United Football Club for the launch”.
As a part of this, Rotherham United and its Disabled Supporters Association have produced a video, highlighting the importance of good access. This shows the positive impact that can be achieved, as well as what they do as a club to support greater access and inclusion.
John Bird, Head of Supporters Services at Rotherham United, said:
“The Level Playing Field Weeks of Action are a significant way of raising awareness of what we are doing here at Rotherham United, as well as at other clubs around the country. We have supported the Level Playing Field Weeks of Action campaign over a number of years and, with their assistance, launched our own Disabled Supporters Association last year. This continues to go from strength to strength.”
Owain Davies, Chief Executive of Level Playing Field said:
“We are thrilled to have worked with Rotherham United and its DSA to create a film that showcases the importance of good access and inclusion. We know that football is at the hub of the community and it is for precisely this that we chose Rotherham United to be the focus of our launch for the 2019 Level Playing Field Weeks of Action”.
