Are you a disabled football fan? Are you passionate about improving the matchday experience for disabled fans? Do you want the chance to attend UEFA Nations League 2021 matches played in your local host city?

CAFE is looking to recruit locally based, differently disabled football fans to become CAFE Accessibility Monitors and evaluate accessible services, facilities and amenities available on the two matchdays in the host cities during the tournament. The monitors will then provide detailed user-led feedback to CAFE on their experiences post-match.

CAFE is looking for to recruit wheelchair users and disabled supporters who do not use a wheelchair but require easy access seating or to be located to accessible services to attend matches played at the San Siro Stadium or the Juventus stadium.

The fixtures are as follows:

  • Italy v Spain, Wednesday 6 October, 19:45, Stadio San Siro (Milan)
  • Belgium v France, Thursday 7 October, 19:45, Juventus Stadium (Turin)
  • Third place play-off, Sunday 10 October, 14:00, Juventus Stadium (Turin)
  • Final, Sunday 10 October, 19:45, Stadio San Siro (Milan)

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

If required, a complimentary companion ticket and accessible parking permit will be provided to all Accessibility Monitors. Please note – accessible parking passes are subject to availability.

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

Applicants must be available to attend all nominated matches played in your host city.

To facilitate communication, 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 Nations League 2021.

The CAFE Accessibility Monitor programme information pack provides further details on the aims and roles of the project.
