The DSA showed their support by launching the clubs new Accessibility booklet that includes all the clubs Disability Policies and the clubs Facilities/Accessible information and was put together by Nick Saunders (ECFC DLO/DSA Chair) and Scott Palfrey (ECFC Marketing) and this was kindly paid for by the Disabled Supporters Association. Nick Saunders (DSA Chair) and David Jones (DSA Vice-chair) were joined by Nicky Baker from Level Playing Field at the Tranmere Rovers match on 2nd March to undertake the launch.
Level Playing Field believes as everyone here at Exeter City does that fans are an important part of the game. By getting involved and by promoting access and inclusion we’re helping by making a big difference to supporters with disabilities everywhere enjoy their match day and the beautiful game that is football.
Football, as the nation’s favourite game has a key leadership role in promoting access, tackling discrimination and ensuring everyone has the opportunity and ability, to enjoy the game. It makes good sense to provide an inclusive environment with the clubs continued working partnership with the Disabled Supporters Association and the One game, one community group as they do great work in ensuring that supporters with disabilities can have an enjoyable match day experience and ’a voice to be heard’ at the club. For details of what the Exeter City Disabled Supporters Association do or to join them as members (membership is open to all).

It has been exciting times for our football club as redevelopment of the two new stands have finished and are now fully open. Working with the DSA and with their great ideas we’ve improved further our facilities for those with disabilities which include more accessible wheelchair areas and spaces for home and away fans and a fully equipped changing places room. Ask the club for more information.
We’re still leading the way with our Policy on Assistance Dogs, as a great deal of football clubs still don’t have this sort of policy and we encourage all clubs to really consider having one as it helps greatly with staff training and understanding how many different types of assistant dogs there are.
