The ninth annual CAFE Week of Action takes place between 6-14 March, and we invite you to join us in celebrating access, inclusion and empowerment of disabled people through sport.

Since 2013, the CAFE Week of Action has provided stakeholders across the industry with an opportunity to promote the important roles that disabled people can play within sport.

Our vision is a world where disabled people are a key part of the global sporting landscape, as fans, employees, volunteers and leaders, so that everyone has equal opportunities to contribute in an accessible, inclusive and welcoming environment.

The CAFE Week of Action is the largest celebration of its kind, offering disabled fans and their groups (DSAs), clubs, venues, leagues, federations, NGOs and everyone passionate about access and inclusion the chance to come together in promoting #TotalAccess.

We thank everyone who joins us in celebrating this season’s CAFE Week of Action, and would like to say a particular thank you our long-term partners at UEFA for their ongoing commitment to this topic.

Over the next week, disabled fans and their groups (DSAs) will come together to celebrate the steps the game has taken towards improving access and inclusion for all. Clubs, leagues and national associations will reaffirm their commitment to the topic, and the importance they place on ensuring that disabled fans can enjoy a welcoming matchday experience.

CAFE Ambassador Omar Mascarell is delighted to be supporting us for this year's Week of Action and invites you to join us in celebrating #TotalAccess:

As part of the CAFE Week of Action small grants programme, CAFE is helping to fund a further twelve activities taking place this week.

Funding was made available to disabled fans, DSAs and stakeholders who otherwise wouldn’t have been able to take part, and more information about each of their activities will be published on the CAFE website and social media channels in the coming days.

We understand that this season’s CAFE Week of Action will be like no other, given the ongoing pandemic and restrictions, but there is still time to get involved. Find out more and download the CAFE Week of Action information pack in English, Dutch, French, German, Italian, Polish, Portuguese, Russian or Spanish.

Follow the celebrations on social media using the hashtag #TotalAccess, and join us in celebrating this season’s CAFE Week of Action!
