On 22nd October 2013, the Centre for Access to Football in Europe attended an NSC Olimpiyskiy test stadium tour for wheelchair users.

The head of the Ukrainian association of disabled people with spinal injuries, Ivan Marusevich, was the first person to test the excursion, adjusted to make it accessible for wheelchair users.

The tour began in the stadium museum, where there are rare match programmes, the shirts of great football players of the past and present and many other interesting items.

The guests then had a chance to visit the Dynamo Kiev and Ukrainian national team changing rooms and interview zone. The tour ended in the stadium bowl.

In the near future every guest will be able to book stadium tours that are accessible for wheelchair users.

CAFE would like to thank the NSC Olimpiyskiy for the implementation of such excursions to the list of stadium tours available.
