Southampton Football Club is delighted to once again work with the Saints Disabled Supporters Association (SDSA) and Saints Foundation, to host the annual Accessibility Open Day.
The event, which will take place at St Mary’s from 12pm-5pm on Tuesday 22nd August, is designed to introduce members of the public and Southampton supporters to the facilities and services we offer to disabled or elderly fans and the local community.
It will also provide an opportunity for local organisations to showcase their activities and services for disabled members of the community and their families.
In addition, the event provides a great platform for the SDSA to raise awareness and funds for their future work. Entry is free of charge, and local disabled organisations are actively encouraged to attend as visitors along with individuals and families. Car parking is available for blue badger holders. There will be no charge for this, and it will be available on a first-come, first-served basis. Attractions on the day include: – Francis Benali, Lawrie McMenemy, Nick Holmes, Reuben Agboola, Manny Andrusweski and Mark Dennis are all attending – Refreshments from a variety of local vendors – Live music from local bands and Saints Brass – A prize draw with the chance to win a range of prizes – The 1976 FA Cup and Hampshire Cup will be on show with the opportunity for photos to be taken with them The SDSA is primarily a self-funding independent association for supporters of Southampton Football Club, but welcomes any supporter who wishes to join. The SDSA works tirelessly to improve the experience for Saints fans with disabilities.
