Foundation Backs Level Playing Field Weeks Of Action

Newcastle United Foundation is supporting the Level Playing Field (LPF) Weeks of Action from
2nd – 17th April 2016 with a number of activities to help highlight the positive initiatives undertaken by clubs, sporting venues and their governing bodies in partnership with disabled sports fans and disabled supporters associations.

This annual campaign, now in its 11th year, is regularly supported through a range of actions and initiatives. For the first time, this year’s Level Playing Field Weeks of Action are aligned with the European celebration of access and inclusion for all football fans Total Football, Total Access, an initiative independently delivered by the Centre for Access to Football in Europe (CAFE) and its partners.

To kick off the weeks of action in style, the Foundation is taking our Down Syndrome Football Team to play against their Norfolk based counterparts in a game scheduled to be played at Norwich’s Carrow Park Family Fanzone before the game. This will then be followed by both teams forming a guard of honour for the crunch Premier League fixture.

On what is an important day for both Clubs, it promises to be a fantastic experience for all taking part and is something organiser Reggie Dornan is particularly looking forward to.

Reggie, Disability Football Development Officer for the Foundation, said: ‘We are thrilled to be able to offer our players such a fantastic opportunity. They are a great bunch who love their football and such a great experience is befitting of their efforts and commitment’.
