Football fans from Saints Foundation’s, disability football programme, SaintsAbility experienced last night’s B team win in style, from one of St Mary’s hospitality boxes.
The group were welcomed to the ground for the experience, with some junior participants taking to the pitch as mascots for the match, to mark International Day of People with Disabilities (IDPWD).
The aim of IDPWD is to celebrate the achievements and contributions of people with disabilities, while also increasing public awareness, understanding and acceptance.
This year’s theme looks at how innovation can fuel inclusivity, something that strongly aligns with the club’s own values.
SaintsAbility, a programme run by the club’s charity Saints Foundation, breaks down barriers to support active and independent lives for people with disabilities in Southampton.
