On the 30th of July 2013, Ukrainian side FC Chernomorets invited disabled supporters and local blind and partially sighted NGO’s to their training ground.

Sergey Kernitskiy, the General Director of FC Chernomorets, also attended the session and met with a number of the club’s disabled fans, thanking them for their support. Sergey also discussed more ways for the club to work with their disabled supporters in the future.

The fans were able to watch the team train, and later met some of their favourite players. They collected autographs, took pictures and talked with the players about their next match.

The disabled FC Chernomorets supporters would like to give a big thank you to the club for organising this event, and look forward to greater cooperation with the club going forwards.
