Tranmere Rovers are proud to be supporting Level Playing Field’s ‘Weeks of Action’ by dedicating Friday night's fixture to the campaign.
The disability charity Level Playing Field are celebrating their 18th ‘Weeks of Action' campaign, which aims to showcase the good work being done by clubs and organisations to improve accessibility and inclusion across all sports.
This year’s theme celebrates the return of fans to stadiums after the suspension of live sport.
Tranmere Rovers are dedicating Friday's fixture to the campaign with the aim to help our disabled supporters learn about Level Playing Field, understand what they do, what their aims are to improve accessibility and inclusion, and how they can assist disabled fans.
Here at Tranmere Rovers, we provide facilities to our disabled supporters to ensure they enjoy their time at Prenton Park. This includes the introduction of our new lift in the Main Stand which means disabled fans can now enjoy the luxury of our hospitality on a matchday.
Tranmere Rovers in the Community also support participants living with a disability on a weekly basis with a number of different activities, information of which can be found below.
Friday night will welcome our junior ability counts team's to Prenton Park as they welcome the players onto the pitch as flag bearers and then will head off into the stand to enjoy the game.
