The eleventh annual CAFE Week of Action is officially underway, and stakeholders from across the sporting sector will be coming together to celebrate the many diverse roles that disabled people can play within sport.

Since 2013, the CAFE Week of Action has provided stakeholders across the industry with an opportunity to promote the importance of improved access and inclusion for all.

Our vision is a world where disabled people are a key part of the global sporting landscape, as fans, employees, volunteers and leaders, so that everyone has equal opportunities to contribute in an accessible, inclusive and welcoming environment.

The CAFE Week of Action is the largest celebration of its kind, offering disabled fans and their groups (DSAs), clubs, venues, leagues, federations, NGOs and everyone passionate about access and inclusion the chance to come together in promoting #TotalAccess.

We thank everyone who joins us in celebrating this season’s CAFE Week of Action, and would like to say a particular thank you our long-term partners at UEFA for their ongoing commitment to this topic.

Over the next week, disabled fans and their groups (DSAs) will come together to celebrate the steps the game has taken towards improving access and inclusion for all. Clubs, leagues and national associations will reaffirm their commitment to the topic, and the importance they place on ensuring that disabled fans can enjoy a welcoming matchday experience.

There is still time to get involved if you haven't already planned your activities. We invite you to share your support for access and inclusion on social media using the hashtag #TotalAccess, and download the CAFE Week of Action information packs for more information on how you can join the celebrations.
