#WeeksOfAction – 2nd to 17th March 2019
On February the 9th Level Playing Field teamed up with Rotherham United FC and Rotherham United Disabled Supporters Association to launch the 15th #WeeksOfAction as a part of RUFC fixture vs Wigan Athletic.
Level Playing Field Chair, Tony Taylor, said:
“We are working with governing bodies in a range of sports in England and Wales to promote greater access and inclusion. We are pleased to have teamed up with Rotherham United Football Club for the launch”.
As a part of this, Rotherham United and its Disabled Supporters Association have produced a video, highlighting the importance of good access. This shows the positive impact that can be achieved, as well as what they do as a club to drive greater standards of access and inclusion.
John Bird, Head of Supporters Services at Rotherham United, said:
“The Level Playing Field Weeks of Action are a significant way of raising awareness of what we are doing here at Rotherham United, as well as at other clubs around the country. We have supported the Level Playing Field Weeks of Action campaign over a number of years and, with their assistance, launched our own Disabled Supporters Association last year. This continues to go from strength to strength.”
Owain Davies, Chief Executive of Level Playing Field said:
“We are thrilled to have worked with Rotherham United and its DSA to create a film that showcases the importance of good access and inclusion. We know that football is at the hub of the community and it is for precisely this reason that we chose Rotherham United to be the focus of our launch for the 2019 Level Playing Field Weeks of Action”.
