The CAFE Team and Board of Directors would like to thank all of our friends, partners and stakeholders for their cooperation throughout 2023, as we send our best wishes for the upcoming festive season.

2023 has been a landmark year in our history, and one that has seen significant changes to the organisation. 

We end the year with three new members of the team, in CEO Olivier Jarosz, Research Officer Hollie Wilson, and Partnerships and Development Officer Rijul Sharda.

Our works have spanned across three continents, delivering projects at the FIFA Women's World Cup in Australia and New Zealand and the FIFA Club World Cup in Saudi Arabia, alongside our core partnership projects across Europe with UEFA.


We are already hugely excited for 2024, with several milestone projects ahead of us.

Our 12th annual Week of Action will take place between 8-24 March, and we encourage stakeholders from across the game, across the globe, to join us in celebrating the key roles that disabled people can play across the world's most popular game.

2024 will also see us hold our 5th International Conference. The Conference is the largest event of its kind and we look forward to announcing more details early in the new year.

We also continue to develop our existing projects, as well as identifying new ways to represent the interests of over one billion disabled people around the world through the unique power of sport.

CEO Olivier Jarosz said, "On behalf of the whole organisation, we extend our immense gratitude to everyone who has contributed to a wonderful 2023. We are as committed as ever to a game that is welcoming for all, and so excited for what is ahead of us".

"We look forward to continuing to work with partners including UEFA, FIFA and stakeholders across the game to make 2024 more #AccesibAll than ever before!" added Olivier.

The CAFE offices will be closed from Saturday 16 December until Tuesday 2 January. Some members of the team will continue to work during this time, but please be mindful that there may be a delay in coming back to you.

Festive greetings for the holidays, and here's to a very happy new year!
