Newport County AFC Disabled Supporters Association (DSA) is officially launching on Sunday 19th July with a special Funday event at Rodney Parade.
The DSA has been established by Newport County fan Colin Faulkner and is the ninth DSA to be launched during Level Playing Field’s Working Together project which offers support to clubs and disabled fans who would like to establish a new DSA. The DSA will be working work closely with Newport County AFC, Rodney Parade Limited and Level Playing Field to represent the clubs disabled supporters.
Tickets for the Funday will cost £2 and entry for children is free. There will be a range of activities on the day including a raffle, Impact soccer, soccer tots training sessions and face painting. In addition, local band 2Rude will be playing from 7:30 in the evening to raise money for the DSA with tickets priced at £6.
Founder Colin Faulkner said ‘Hopefully the day will attract plenty of locals to engage in some fun and learn a little something about disability. It is important for a club like Newport County and Rodney Parade Limited to be close with its community and be seen to be setting an example in improving facilities for disabled people. We are eager to continue working with the club and stadium owners in improving the matchday experience of the disabled supporter. I would like to thank Level Playing Field for their continued support’.
