Working Together: Please share your photos

This season LPF is appealing to all disabled fans and Disabled Supporters Associations to send photographs at sporting events which we would be able to use in our ongoing communications.

The photos will be used in a range of publicity materials and we would particularly like to see matchday images both inside or outside of the stadium. These could be your matchday view, examples of good access or a group photo of disabled fans enjoying a match.

Please can you email photos to Kieran Reynolds at

Fan Comments

We are once again calling on disabled sports fans to use our Fans Comments facility to inform us of their experiences as a disabled fan.

Fans Comments are a great opportunity for fans to let us know about your matchday experience, whether good or not so good, which is used as important feedback to clubs in our aim of improving access and inclusion for disabled spectators.

To leave a Fans Comment, you can select the stadium or venue you attended from the 'Clubs/Venues' tab on the Level Playing Field homepagescroll down to the bottom of the page and fill out the Fans Comment section.

Make sure you have your say!
