In 2013, CAFE delivered a research project looking into accepted proofs of disability across European football.

Funded by the Enlarged Partial Agreement on Sport (EPAS), Council of Europe, the project reviewed the existing ticketing management systems and associated proof of disability for disabled sports fans, who require dedicated seating and / or complimentary companion (personal assistant) tickets for large sporting events.

The aim of the project was to find a sustainable and more convenient solution which ensures the dignity and respect of disabled people themselves whilst ensuring that tickets are best allocated to genuine disabled spectators by large sporting event owners / local organising committees. The aim is to reduce the number of tickets that are currently mis-sold to non-disabled persons.
