Action Urged Over Disabled Sports Fan Access

Action Urged Over Disabled Sports Fan Access

Ministers are calling on disabled sports fans to take part in the most comprehensive review of their treatment at sports grounds.

In what is hoped will be the largest survey of its kind the Government wants Britain's 12 million disabled people to share their experience of viewing live sport at sports grounds across Britain.

Organisers want to hear from fans of all sports - in particular rugby, cricket, hockey, basketball, cycling and motor racing. The survey comes after the Government called on Britain's football leagues to take urgent action to redress the "woeful" lack of support and space for disabled spectators, reminding them of their legal obligations to provide room for disabled fans.

Research showed nearly half of Premier League football clubs do not offer half the wheelchair space they should for disabled people. Mark Harper, Minister for disabled people, said: "For too long in this country disabled sports fans have been treated like second-class citizens at many sporting venues.

"And yet one in five of us have an impairment, and disabled people and their households have a spending power of over £200bn. "We know the situation in football is unacceptable and it's not only wheelchair access that falls short, but adjustments for people with all kinds of impairments.

"We encourage all sports fans with a disability to tell us of their experiences at sporting venues, so we can get a clear picture of whether disabled sports fans are being treated fairly."
