In October 2020, a UK NGO, working to empower disabled football fans, won EUR 400,000 from the Erasmus+ programme – Strategic Partnership in the field of sport.
The project started in January 2021 and the activities are expected to be completed within 3 years. Our client works with national football associations, national disabled supporters associations and leagues from Germany, Belgium and France to improve access and inclusion in football. The project is aimed to serve as a roadmap and supporting toolkit for other national associations, leagues and disabled fan groups across Europe and beyond to implement the project in their own countries.
Our mutual collaboration does not stop here and another Erasmus+ application is on its way. This time, we are applying for an educational project, aimed at further strengthening access for disabled football fans in football internationally.
