Dons host their Ability Counts Big Day

3 April 2017

MK Dons held its annual Ability Counts Big Day at Stadium MK on Saturday.

The designated big day took place surrounding the Dons’ 3-2 victory over Gillingham, which was played in front of 8,807.

It aimed to promote the facilities available to disabled supporters at Stadium MK as well as highlight the work undertaken by the MK Dons Sport and Education Trust (SET), including its 20 disability teams.

In the build-up to the match, the Club held a series of stadium tours for disabled supporters and fans were be able to ask questions to director of sales Richard Gough, manager Robbie Neilson and disability ambassador David Martin.
 
On the day of the game itself, fans representing the Dons’ disability teams, along with Gillingham supporters and guest teams from other clubs who take part in disability football, took part in a half-time parade around the pitch to promote disability awareness in a celebration of football.

In addition, MK Dons SET also ran a series of demonstration games with the disability teams at the Club’s training facility at Woughton on the Green.

Members of the MK Dons Supporters Association were also present, undertaking a programme of events to raise funds for their Changing Places Project to enable them to install one a specialised disabled toilet facility in Stadium MK.
