Nicky Baker made the 350-mile round-trip to be at Exeter City FC, where on Saturday 2nd March 2019 Weeks of Action launched and Exeter City FC took this opportunity to launch their new accessibility guide. The accessibility guide is a useful resource for both home and away spectators. It helps to highlight new facilities that have been opened this season, which includes lowered counters at concessions, some covered wheelchair user viewing areas and a Changing Places facility.
Exeter in the Community invited D/deaf teams along to watch the match and had sign language available for the young players. The players took to the pitch at half-time for a photo opportunity and were well received by the Exeter crowd.
Unfortunately, the players on the pitch couldn’t match the success of the day, narrowly losing 1-0 to Tranmere Rovers.
Nicky Baker, Access and Development Officer from Level Playing Field, said “It was a great day and good to see so many young people getting involved. It was great to see the accessibility guide launched, which highlights the new Changing Places. Changing Places is such an important facility for many disabled people and can make a difference to as to whether someone can attend a match. Thank you, Exeter, on the day for all your hospitality”.
