Sharing best practices and experiences across Europe.

CAFE has fostered a number of exchange meetings with DAOs across Europe. Using the unique opportunity of clubs being drawn against each other in UEFA competitions, CAFE has introduced DAOs to their counterparts to share their best practice examples and ideas.

During the 2017-18 season, CAFE facilitated these meetings at four different matches involving representatives from some of Europe's biggest clubs, including Barcelona, Chelsea and Borussia Dortmund.

Meetings have generally included a tour of accessible facilities and services available at the host club, as well as discussions on current activities and projects, work with external stakeholders and how DAOs have overcome challenges in their roles.

Other topics discussed have included potential stadium renovations and rebuilds, the impact of legislation in different countries and the importance of working with disabled fans.
