WIGAN ATHLETIC SUPPORT LEVEL PLAYING FIELD WEEKS OF ACTION 2017

14 March 2017

Game Changers aims to improve access and inclusion for disabled fans

Wigan Athletic Football Club is pleased to support the 2017 Level Playing Field (LPF) Weeks of Action. This annual initiative, now in its 12th 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% of the population and this number is increasing year on year. Naturally, a large number of disabled people are football fans too and we are pleased to take this opportunity to thank our own disabled fans for their continued loyalty and dedication to this great club. 

As part of 'Together', Wigan Athletic Football, Wigan Athletic Community Trust and the DW Stadium are committed to promoting equality and diversity. 

This year we are celebrating the ‘Game Changers’ that make a big difference to the matchday experience of our disabled fans. We want to shine a light on those who lead and pioneer change that improves access and inclusion, and in many cases changing the lives of disabled people.

The Weeks of Action campaign joins together sports clubs, fans and organisations across England and Wales to celebrate the #GameChangers who make a difference for disabled football fans and to promote a message of access and inclusion for all.
