As part of our support for Level Playing Field’s Weeks of Action campaign, we sat down with some Bluebirds fans to talk about the importance of being able to enjoy live sport.
The theme of this year’s campaign is around the return of supporters to stadiums, so we thought it was a good chance to find out how important being able to attend games is to our fans.
Level Playing Field’s annual drive is aimed at raising awareness of the great work being done nationally by clubs and organisations to improve accessibility and inclusion at their venues for disabled fans.
To discuss the issue more and find out the great strides the Club is making on this front, our Media Manager Mark Simpson sat down for a video call with:
Steve Herbert – the Club’s Disability Liaison Officer
Stephen Forbes – a disabled fan who played a big role in the formation of the Club’s Disabled Supporters’ Association
Alan Sharkey – a fan who used to work as a steward and turnstile operative before pain in knees forced him give up the roles
Shane Pitts - a Bluebirds fanatic and Community Trust coach who has cerebral palsy
