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 (subject to Covid-19 regulations).

CAFE will work with UEFA to improve the matchday experience for disabled supporters at this summer’s rescheduled European Championships.

To support this, a locally based wheelchair user will be recruited in each host city as a volunteer, to attend a minimum of one match (maximum of two matches) during the tournament and provide detailed user-led feedback to CAFE post-match.

CAFE is looking for fans that are passionate about accessibility and can draw upon experience to evaluate matchday services, facilities and amenities.

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.

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 group stage matches played in your host city during UEFA EURO 2020, between 11 June and 11 July 2021.

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.

The CAFE Accessibility Monitor programme information pack provides further details on the aims and responsibilities of the role. Translated versions will be available to download shortly.

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

Please then send your proof of disability 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. 

Please note: Without receiving valid proof of disability, your application can not be considered.

The closing date for applications is 17:00 BST on Friday 23 April. CAFE will let you know if your application has been successful within five working days of the closing date.

Please note: The CAFE Accessibility Monitor project may be amended at short notice due to ongoing restrictions on attendance.
