Today; the panel cover many aspects of disability in football from accessibility and catering for fans, to playing, inclusion and working in the game. We hear from fans, journalists and people working for club charities on what is being doing for disabled fans, but more importantly, what more can be done – including how able-bodied fans at matches can be more considerate.

The panel are also joined by presenters working in the media on the importance of representation and the challenges it presents.

Joining us on the show are Tony Taylor from Level Playing Field, HLTCO’s Dan Cook, Sam Brooker from Albion In The Community, Terri Ritchie from the Liverpool FC Foundation, the BBC’s Mani Djazmi, plus EE and BT Sport’s Rolf Choutan.
