David Moussy

David Moussy

Director and Trustee

 

David is Vice-Chairman of the DSA for Olympique Marseille FC (363 season ticket holders, making it the largest association of its kind in France). In his capacity of Vice-Chairman, David organises all aspects of enabling disabled fans to support Olympique Marseille at both home and away matches. His work includes liaising and negotiating with the club, coordinating volunteers on match days and providing support services to disabled fans. David has worked closely with Olympique Marseille in order to improve access for disabled fans and enhance their match day experience.

 

A life-long supporter of Olympique Marseille, David is a big football fan and enjoys watching any match, from his son’s under 11 team to Barcelona or Arsenal! David is delighted to have the opportunity to put this experience to further good use as part of the CAFE team: developing DSAs similar to the HandiFan Club Olympique Marseille across France and creating a French national federation of disabled supporters.

 

David initially joined the CAFE team on a part-time basis as a Project Co-ordinator around UEFA EURO 2016 in France.
