CITY SUPPORT LEVEL PLAYING FIELD

22 March 2019

The club is proud to support the 2019 Level Playing Field (LPF) 'Weeks of Action'.

This annual initiative - now in its 15th year - aims to celebrate access and inclusion for disabled sports fans across England and Wales.

Disabled people constitute the largest minority group at around 15%-20% of the population and this number is increasing year on year.

Naturally, a large number of disabled people are football fans and we are pleased to take this opportunity to thank our own disabled fans for their continued loyalty and dedication towards the club.

Jaimie Dorward, Bradford City Disability Liaison Officer, said: "This year we are celebrating the matchday experience for disabled fans. 

"We want to shine a light on the positives of attending a live matchday and in turn, help remove those barriers and promote a culture of accessibility and inclusiveness for all within sport.

"Today some of our disabled junior supporters will be flag waving prior to the start of the game and we will also watch Bradford City Disability FC juniors teams play on the pitch in an exhibition game at half time.

The club originally planned to mark it's support for LPF on Saturday March 9 (Bradford City v Peterborough) - but due to adverse weather conditions - the plans were postponed so the team could play on the pitch at half-time. 

For this campaign, the club are joining together with sports clubs, fans and organisations across England and Wales to celebrate the #WeeksOfAction to not only promote the positive experience had by disabled fans but also the message of access and inclusion for all.
