Apollon FC is pleased to offer our support to this season’s CAFE Week of Action – #TotalAccess.
The CAFE Week of Action is an annual celebration of the many diverse and different roles that disabled people can play within sport.
There are over one billion disabled people worldwide – around 15% of the global population. Despite this, disabled people are often one of the most under-represented groups in our wider society.
In these uncertain times, one thing that is clear is the power of sport to act as a catalyst for disability-inclusive change in wider society.
CAFE’s vision is a world where disabled people are a key part of the global sporting landscape, as fans, employees, volunteers and leaders, so that everyone has equal opportunities to contribute in an accessible, inclusive and welcoming environment.
We share CAFE’s aim of a totally accessible and inclusive sports industry. This is the standard that we should all be aspiring to achieve, and we look forward to working with CAFE and other partners towards this goal.
During this season’s CAFE Week of Action, our football players will enter the pitch holding a banner with the “Total Access” message at the local derby against AEL on Monday 8/3.
In addition, an educational video will be posted in the following days which aims at raising awareness and promote inclusion for disabled people.
This will be the 6th season where Apollon FC participates in CAFÉ’s Week of Action as the club strongly believes in mutual respect and equality amongst all people.
