Jochen Kemmer from CAFE presents on stadium accessibility

Jochen Kemmer Disability Access Officer (DAO) Project Manager at Centre for Access to Football in Europe (CAFE) presents on “How to make a stadium accessible – services & infrastructure” at the 13th EFDN Conference in Barcelona in November.

How to make a stadium accessible – services & infrastructure

In the presentation, CAFE will give an overview of what accessible stadium means and showcase some best practices of accessible stadiums. This reaches from accessible parking, accessible signage to accessible seating options and various services for differently disabled fans (such as sensory viewing rooms, Audio Descriptive Commentary, sign language interpreter). It includes as well some suggestions regarding stadium regulations (e.g. allowing guide &assistance dogs) and stewarding to improve the match day experience of disabled fans and making stadiums really inclusive.
