The English Football League (EFL) have set out a clear accessibility work plan which seeks to ensure a better matchday experience for disabled spectators. The EFL have committed to a programme of continual improvement in facilities, in conjunction with their clubs and Level Playing Field. The plan touches on all aspects of the matchday experience and is being implemented over the current season.
Ensuring sport is inclusive and accessible for spectators remains a priority, and I want to continue to see concerted action taken by clubs to fulfil their legal obligations towards disabled supporters. The Equality and Human Rights Commission (EHRC) is the regulatory body responsible for enforcing the Equality Act 2010 The EHRC has powers to ensure service providers, including sports stadia, fulfil their legal obligations under the Act.
