About UEFA Respect Access for All project
CAFE will be delivering the official UEFA Respect - Access for All project around UEFA EURO 2016 in France.
- CAFE launched the project in December 2014, and appointed local Project Coordinators in France.
- CAFE is working with the local organising committee, the French Football Federation (FFF) and non-governmental organisations to encourage good accessibility and inclusion practices and to liaise with disabled fans before and during the tournament.
- CAFE will be delivering an audio-descriptive commentary service at the tournament for partially sighted and blind fans.
- Audio-descriptive commentary has been provided by CAFE at previous tournaments and has proved hugely popular, making it possible for fans to attend live matches who previously couldn’t.
- The CAFE website has dedicated stadium pages for each host stadium, with access information, relevant contacts for disabled fans and the HAVE YOUR SAY section.
- This allows fans who have attended a match at the stadium to share their experiences as well as any photographs or documents. These comments then help other disabled fans to plan their trips to the stadium, and informs CAFE of any issues faced by disabled fans.
- The website also has pages providing information on accessible travel options to each host city.
- In addition, CAFE is also publishing information on accessible accommodation, tourism, restaurants, public transport and taxis. Information on the accessibility of the official UEFA Fan Zones will be published ahead of the tournament.
