We expect all owners of sports facilities and stadia to take the necessary action to fulfil their legal obligations under the Equality Act 2010 so that disabled people are not placed at a substantial disadvantage when accessing sports venues.

Our Sports Strategy commits Government to work with the football authorities to ensure that all clubs meet their legal obligations under the Equality Act to accommodate disabled spectators. Sport England provides guidance to organisations to support them in developing accessible facilities.
