Ensure disabled supporters can sit in all stands of a football stadium

0 have signed. Let’s get to 200!


Currently, English Football League (EFL) regulations state that clubs must provide facilities for the accommodation of disabled supporters to meet the legal requirements imposed by the Equality Act 2010 (appendix 1, paragraph 15). 

This means that clubs do not have to ensure that disabled supporters can sit in any area of a football stadium. At clubs such as Forest Green Rovers and Portsmouth, visiting fans who are disabled will have to sit with the home fans in the opposite areas of the stadium. 

By changing paragraph 15 to specify that clubs must provide facilities in all areas of the stadium, we can guarantee that all fans, with or without a disability, can sit in any stand of any EFL stadium. Disabled fans would not be separated from their fellow travelling supporters. 

Football is meant to be a game that brings people together, not one that pushes them apart. Please help us achieve that goal by signing our petition.
