This weekend’s game will see Barrow shine a light on Level Playing Field’s Weeks of Action campaign which aims to drive a great matchday experience and allow more disabled fans to watch football.
As part of our local campaign, we’ve designated the match with Mansfield Town as our Day of Action and you will notice players warming up in t-shirts to spread the word and our coaching staff wearing pin badges.
You can also look out for a special interview recorded with devoted Barrow fan, Shane Pitts - who has cerebral palsy – as he shares with us just how important football is to him and opens up about his experiences of following the ‘beautiful game’ as a disabled supporter.
Now in its 17th season, Level Playing Field’s annual Weeks of Action campaign looks to highlight the positive work being done by clubs, fans and other organisations towards access and inclusion.
The key objective of #WeeksOfAction is to raise awareness of good access and inclusion and how it benefits disabled fans and the wider community.
With the suspension of supporters in stadia earlier this season, this year’s theme focuses on ‘the importance of live sport’ on supporters’ wellbeing.
