MK Dons to Unite for Access this Saturday at Stadium MK

Unite For Access is a celebration of accessibility and inclusion for disabled sports fans...

20 February 2023

This Saturday at Stadium MK, MK Dons are asking all supporters to 'Unite For Access.'

An estimated 22% of the UK population are disabled, making disabled people the largest minority group in the UK.

Still, many disabled sports fans feel that attending live sports is not possible, due to the environmental and societal barriers that disabled football fans face, which make matchdays inaccessible.

The most recent Level Playing Field Fan survey found that 28.5% of disabled sports fans considered the attitudes of others to be a barrier when attending live sport, and over a quarter of disabled fans, 36.5%, said they are unable to attend certain sports or sporting venues due to lack of accessibility.

MK Dons is proud to participate in Level Playing Field’s new national campaign, 'Unite For Access' – a celebration of accessibility and inclusion for disabled sports fans.

Level Playing Field is the leading charity advocating for disabled sports fans in England and Wales, and our dedicated 'Unite For Access' matchday is one of many happening across stadiums up and down the country over two weeks.

As a club, MK Dons believes that all people should be able to attend live sports, regardless of disability. The Club is committed to making Stadium MK accessible to all, and will continue to take steps to improve, while also calling on supporters to join this journey and play their part.

Talking about disability can be daunting sometimes, as it’s a complex subject matter. That’s why MK Dons invite all supporters, disabled and non-disabled, to engage with the Club on this important campaign and to ensure access and inclusion is at the heart of everything we do.

Good disability access benefits everyone… and that's why MK Dons asks all to:

Unite for Your Team
Unite for your fans
#UniteForAccess
