As part of our works around UEFA EURO 2020, CAFE is aiming to recruit disabled football fans to become CAFE Accessibility Monitors and evaluate accessible services, facilities and amenities available on matchdays.

The Centre for Access to Football in Europe (CAFE) is a UEFA Football Social Responsibility (FSR) partner and is recognised as a leading voice on access and inclusion within European football. CAFE is working with UEFA to improve the matchday experience for disabled supporters at its competition and tournament Finals.

Two locally based disabled people will be recruited in each host city as volunteers, to attend a number of matches during the month-long tournament and provide detailed user-led feedback to CAFE post-match.

CAFE is looking for one wheelchair user and one disabled person who is a non-wheelchair user (such as a person with limited mobility, a deaf / hard of hearing person, a blind / partially sighted person, person with a non-visible disability, or a learning or intellectually disabled person) in each host city.

Successful applicants will need to submit valid proof of disability to CAFE.

Further information on valid proof of disability can be found here.

If required, a complimentary companion ticket and accessible parking permit will be provided to all Accessibility Monitors.

A short online training for CAFE Accessibility Monitors will be provided via video conference tool: Zoom.

Applicants must be available to attend all nominated matches played in your host city during UEFA EURO 2020, between 12 June and 12 July 2020.


A good level of English amongst applicants is preferred but is not compulsory.

Successful candidates must complete a CAFE Evaluation report, and submit this alongside any photos and videos within 24 hours of the final whistle of each match they attend.

Appointed Accessibility Monitors must also be available to clarify responses and provide additional information up to 48 hours after the end of each match attended.

CAFE will share all reports and supplementary evidence with UEFA and the host venue, so that any changes can be made before the next match is played at that stadium.

CAFE and UEFA hope that feedback received from Accessibility Monitors will encourage long-term and sustainable improvements for local based disabled spectators as a legacy of hosting UEFA EURO 2020.

To apply, please complete our online application form here. Alternative formats are available upon request.

Please then send your proof of disability via email to [email protected]. Please ensure you add your full name and the name of the relevant host city in the subject line of your email. Without receiving valid proof of disability, your application can not be considered.

The closing date for applications is 17:00 GMT on Tuesday 31 March 2020. CAFE will let you know if your application has been successful within five working days of the closing date.

If you have any questions, or require an alternative format of the application form, please contact CAFE Fan Liaison and Access officer Amy Wilson by email at [email protected] or call +44 (0)208 065 5108 weekdays from 09:00 to 17:00 GMT.

We look forward to receiving your applications!
