Match: Supercup 2017 Manchester- Real

Published: 27/9/2017

 

Our personal experience with our disable child was fantastic for the UEFA Supercup 2017. The accessibility was completely provided, the parking area for vehicles for disable was assigned, we were helped in all areas from FFM volunteers and our son had great time resting and refreshing at the refreshment area that was also adapted. We had purchased the accessibility tickets for the UEFA Supercup, and the space for wheelchairs is wide enough for wheelchair maneuvers and escort person.  
The only part that is missing in Macedonia are official vehicles for transport of disable guests. That is something that should be considered for solving in the near future. We had our private adaptive van, but we could notice that other guests were missing the adaptive transport  in Macedonia.
From our previous local experience with Football Federation of Macedonia (FFM), we have to mention that our son Jane as a passionate football fan, was included in the campaign “Captains of changes” for raising awareness of the social inclusion for people with disability in Macedonia as a player’s escort. This campaign had very positive reactions and made such a wonderful impact on the local level. That's the power of football!
