Tranmere Rovers in the Community support Level Playing Field's Week Of Action

10 March 2020

Tranmere Rovers are proud to support Level Playing Field’s Weeks of Action by holding weekly disability community football sessions.
 
The next fortnight is Level Playing Field’s annual two Weeks of Action in partnership with the EFL.
 
Level Playing Field is a registered charity who are a campaign and advisory organisation acting on the behalf of disabled sports fans to ensure matchday inclusion and equal access in England and Wales.
 
The charity promotes a positive and inclusive environment for disabled supporters, and work at every level to help ensure that live sport can be freely accessible for disabled people.
 
And through TRIC, (Tranmere Rovers In the Community) regular sessions are held from the Club’s Recreation Centre at Prenton Park.
 
Participants can take part in a variety of inclusive sessions including the opportunity to represent TRFC in Ability Counts Leagues.
 
TRIC also holds Unified Kicks and other disability football sessions for residents of the wider Wirral community.
 
Four days a week, TRIC provide sessions specifically aimed at those with a wide range of disabilities. The team have been providing disability support for over 30 years and they continue to offer an extensive range of football and dance activity programmes.
 
Christine Roberts, Head of Brand and Matchday at Tranmere Rovers, said: “For clubs, the Weeks of Action is a great way for us to shout about what we do.
 
“There’s so many things going on, particularly for smaller clubs so it gives us the opportunity to focus on what improvements have we done and what are we doing.
 
“It’s having that engagement, it’s having that conversation and it just forces for that to become a priority for those two weeks.”
 
Tranmere Rovers’ first-team squad will warm up in Level Playing Field t-shirts ahead of next Saturday’s Sky Bet League One fixture against Lincoln City at Prenton Park.
