Our continued commitment to Disabled Supporters
Over the last few years, Burnley Football Club and BFCitC have been making an incredible effort to improve the experience on matchday for disabled supporters. The two accessible stands in the North East and South East corners are testament to the efforts made to ensure everyone can access and enjoy Turf Moor.
The two new corner stand developments in the North East and South East of Turf Moor were only the first step in making the stadium a more inclusive environment for disabled supporters.
For our dedicated Weeks of Action fixture this year, Burnley Football Club are outlining six commitments to further actions we will be taking over the next 12 months to promote inclusivity for disabled supporters.
These six commitments include:
Burnley Football Club Disabled Supporters Association
As well as the commitments outlined above, supporter feedback is important in making Turf Moor truly accessible to all who visit the ground, and helps us to make informed decisions.
Burnley Football Club’s Disabled Supporters Association are an organised group of supporters who work with the club to provide a voice for disabled fans. The group represent disabled supporters across the fan base and regularly meet with Club representatives to provide feedback from disabled supporters and advice on new initiatives or ideas.
