Joe and Claire’s match day story – Plymouth Argyle

We teamed up with the EFL as part of our Weeks of Action to bring you an insight into disability among football fans.

Live sport, we all miss it.

That feeling of meeting up with your mate’s post-game to talk tactics, the excitement building as you make your way to the ground with fellow supporters around you, making your way to your seat as you walk into the stands and seeing that green pitch.

Excitement, joy or frustration awaits, and that feeling is the same for all, including disabled fans. Live sport can make you smile, laugh, cry and have your head in your hands in a matter of minutes, and that’s why it’s so glorious.

Claire and Joe are Plymouth Argyle supporters attend all home games and a majority of away games even though they live in Essex with a 500 mile round trip each home game. For Joe, sport is all the above and more.

This is Joe and Claire’s story.
