Level Playing Field is excited to share the Weeks of Action 2021 report.
This year’s campaign was like no other.
In its 17th season, Weeks of Action took place whilst sport was being played behind closed doors as the suspension of fans at live sports events continued.
Social media, video calls, Q&As, virtual mascots and player support was at the heart of this year’s campaign, as Level Playing Field was joined by over 190 clubs, disabled supporters’ associations, and other organisations across England and Wales to spread this season’s message: highlighting the importance of live sport for disabled sports fans.
Level Playing chief executive Owain Davies said: “As always, we are very grateful for the support we receive from all who participated in this year’s Weeks of Action campaign.
“There was initial trepidation taking a campaign from its traditional routes with matchday activities/events onto a more virtual platform. Like the past year and a half, it has been a case of adapting and making the best impact possible towards our cause of improving the matchday experience and access for disabled sports fans.
“Like most, we look forward to fans being back in the stands and watching live sport together. The importance of watching live sport should never be underestimated and that is why the Weeks of Action campaign is so important.”
