To help support the creation of user-led Disabled Supporters Associations (DSAs), CAFE is pleased to publish a dedicated Disabled Supporters Association Information Pack.

This pack outlines all important information on how to successfully create and establish a DSA at a football club, including why and how to set up a DSA, the benefits a DSA can bring to a club and its disabled fans and a number of key activities often carried out by DSAs.

It also provides details on how CAFE can help support clubs and their disabled fans to create a sustainable DSA, as well as case study examples from three existing DSAs from across Europe.

CAFE research has shown that a DSA can have many benefits, including the empowerment of disabled fans and the provision of advice and support to clubs on improving access and inclusion for all supporters.

CAFE Fans Liaison and Administration Officer Amy Wilson said, "We are delighted to launch the DSA Information Pack, we are sure this willl be an invaluable source of information to both disabled fans and clubs who are looking at creating a DSA at their club. We hope that with the publication of the information pack and continued support and guidance provided by CAFE, the number of established DSAs across Europe will continue to increase". 

The information pack is available to download here in English, French, German, Russian and Spanish.
