Access Audits

Level Playing Field offers professional Access Audits which are undertaken by NRAC (National Register of Access Consultants) auditors specialising in sporting venues and live match and event services.

Level Playing Field – Access Audit programme

Level Playing Field offers support and guidance to clubs and sports venues in delivering accessible and inclusive match (and event) day experiences for all.

It is always a positive step when a sports club or venue commissions a Level Playing Field Access Audit. This professional audit recognises what has already been achieved and identifies what more can still be done to ensure a truly customer-focused approach for disabled spectators and guests and an inclusive welcome for everyone. Level Playing Field is pleased to work in partnership with sports governing bodies, their clubs and sports venues and with disabled people themselves to deliver an inclusive experience and always aims to share best practice and new ideas.

We are uniquely placed to offer Access Audits specifically designed for sports stadia, venues and arenas and look beyond the built environment to take into account pan-disability requirements of sports spectators. We revisit the stadium on a match day, take time to talk to key personnel, look at the club’s policies and procedures and can also provide disability inclusion and etiquette training, stewards and match day staff training as well as ongoing support and access advice.

The audit programme is led by our experienced in house NRAC (National Register of Access Consultants) Auditors who are pleased to provide cost effective access audits tailored specifically to each club and venue.
