Huddersfield Town add Accessibility Cards to help supporters with disabilities on match days
- New scheme launched for match days for supporters with disabilities
- In addition to the scheme launched in 2019 to assist supporters
- Contact Town’s Disability Liaison Officer to join the scheme
Huddersfield Town has added a new scheme to support fans with disabilities on match days.
The new scheme will help those with disabilities to easily identify themselves to Club and Stadium staff should they need assistance, without being required to explain their disability. This will enable the fan to be supported in the appropriate way.
The Club hopes this will make it easier for fans with disabilities to come and enjoy the game.
Exact details of the scheme are not being widely publicised, but supporters who would benefit from the initiative will be given something to show to stewards or staff if it was needed.
Huddersfield Town’s Head of Ticketing and Disabled Liaison Officer, Gina Buckley, commented:
“As a Club we are constantly working to improve the experience for our disabled supporters, and we are committed to promoting inclusion and accessibility.
“After seeing similar schemes in action at other venues, we hope the addition of accessibility cards will support those who need it.”
Disabled season card holders are being contacted directly about the scheme over the next few weeks. To opt in you can click the following link to download the form HERE - and return to the Club’s Disability Liaison Officer on email@example.com or call 01484 960 606.
