Wycombe Wanderers were proud to wear t-shirts emblazoned with the Level Playing Field crest on Saturday, as part of the charity's Weeks of Action designated to raising awareness of the need for sports venues to offer positive, inclusive experiences for disabled sports fans.

The club's support of the charity runs alongside its own commitment to launching a disabled supporters association, in partnership with Wycombe Wanderers Trust, which will canvas the views of fans with disabilities and seek to improve the facilities and services available around Adams Park.

Manager Gareth Ainsworth said: "It’s hugely important, and perhaps more so now than ever, that football grounds are safe and welcoming places for everyone to come to and enjoy themselves, which is why I’m delighted that Wycombe Wanderers are stepping up its commitment to improving the facilities for disabled supporters at Adams Park.

"We all know someone who may struggle with their mobility, or hearing, or eyesight, and it’s our duty as a football club to make sure they get all the help they may need when they come to see us play.

"It’s great that this has come during the Weeks of Action run by Level Playing Field, who I know do some fantastic work in making sports venues accessible and promoting a positive, inclusive experience for disabled sports fans."
