CAFE Managing Director Joyce Cook and Projects and Fan Liaison Manager Mike Rice have travelled to Amsterdam to attend the founding meeting of the Dutch national disabled supporters group. More information about this event will be posted in the very near future.


Head of Development in Eastern Europe Elena Karpukhina has been working closely with the Olympskiy Stadium in Kiev, Ukraine, and the tours specifically designed to be fully accessible for all disabled people will be opened to the wider public from the 4th of December.


CAFE's Project Coordinator in Poland, Zuzanna Ziajko, will oversee the signing of a Memorandum of Cooperation between CAFE and the Football Polish League concerning disabled supporters issues and creating accessible sport infrastructure. The memorandum outlines a number of shared goals to make live football fully accessible for all supporters.
