Wolves were the first club to support this year’s campaign with an event, which included a sign language class and a pitch side performance from a deaf choir at their Premier League game against Norwich City on Sunday 23rd.
The squad who are currently competing on Europe’s biggest stage were introduced to 32,000 capacity Molineux stadium by Wolves supporter Jack, using sign language on the big screen to announce the line-up for the day.
Disability Access Officer at Wolves, Laura Wright, kept us up to date with the day’s events on Twitter.
Today we teamed up with @FletchSignSong who signed a song by Anne-Marie for us at half time. Together we make our pack stronger 💪🏻 full video available soon. Here is a sneaky preview #weeksofaction @lpftweets pic.twitter.com/BLvym1Xk35
