PNE To Celebrate Level Playing Fields 'Weeks Of Action'

28 February 2019

Saturday's game against Bristol City will celebrate access and inclusion in football as we celebrate the 2019 Level Playing Field (LPF) Weeks of Action!

The annual initiative, now in its 19th year aims to put the spotlight on access for disabled supporters at football clubs with a particular emphasis on accessibility on a matchday.

This year, to mark the occasion, Preston North End have gone one step further – by inviting PNE fans with a disability to come and fulfil a day of work experience at Preston North End.

In the run up to today’s game, we asked supporters over on PNE.Com to express an interest in taking part in a day of work experience at North End in various sectors across the football club, and selected several fans to get involved. Unfortunately due to the volume of entries, we couldn't fulfil everybody's reequests, but we'd like to thank everybody for getting involved.

This Saturday we will be enlisting several disabled supporters to work at PNE for the day where they’ll take part in work experience – offering employability skills and unique and memorable experiences for those taking part.

The initiative will conclude on Saturday where our work experience members will take part in a half-time photo on the pitch.

We are joining together with sports clubs, fans and organisations across England and Wales who are all #WeeksOfAction2019 and have chosen to share one common message - access and inclusion for all.
