Cheltenham Town to support Unite For Access campaign at Burton Albion clash

1 March 2024

Cheltenham Town will be showing their support for the Level Playing Field ‘Unite For Access’ campaign as we take on Burton Albion at the Completely-Suzuki Stadium this Saturday.

Level Playing Field is the leading disability fan advocacy charity in England and Wales, and we are proud to join more than a hundred other clubs taking part in the 'Unite For Access' campaign.

An estimated 24% of the UK population is disabled, making disabled people the largest minority group in the UK. Level Playing Field’s ‘Unite For Access’ campaign celebrates access and inclusion for disabled fans at sporting events throughout England and Wales.

The most recent Level Playing Field fan survey listed ‘attitudes of others’ as the second most common barrier to attending live sport, ranking only behind ‘physical access’ and impacting more than a quarter of disabled fans.

This means that everyone can play a significant part in making live sport more inclusive. We, as a Club, believe that all people should be able to attend live sport. We are committed to making football accessible to all and will continue to take steps to improve.

We also call on all supporters to play their part in making the Completely-Suzuki Stadium a welcoming environment for all. Everyone should be able to enjoy cheering on their team on matchday.

Fan welcome area

For the Unite for Access match on Saturday, we will have a welcome area with our Supporter Services Group, Her Game Too Ambassador, and the vice-chair of the Robins Trust near the main entrance to the HGV Drivers UK Stand and ticket office. So, please come by and say hi before the match!

DAB radios and ear defenders available

Commentary will be available for this match on BBC Radio Gloucestershire, accessible via a DAB radio. The Cheltenham Town Community Trust have provided DAB pocket radios and ear defenders for supporters to use on matchdays. These are available for loan by emailing or approaching the Supporter Services Group on matchdays.

Raising awareness for dementia

The match against Burton Albion is sponsored by Christopher Evans on behalf of Dementia UK. Representatives from the Gloucestershire Health and Care NHS Foundation Trust will also have a stall in the car park before kickoff. They will be raising awareness about dementia and how to reduce your risk through increasing physical activity and maintaining social connections.

Aligning with that, the Cheltenham Town Community Trust have started running free sessions in the local community for people over the age of 50 to promote the importance of exercise and help reduce the risk of loneliness.

This includes a walking group, craft sessions, seated chair exercise classes, board game sessions, coffee mornings and boccia. They currently meet at the Completely-Suzuki Stadium for their events on Mondays. If you’d like to find out more information, please get in touch with Daisy Tatum by emailing
