The BBC earlier today released an article ” Disabled access: Premier League clubs may face sanctions over lack of improvement” discussing the desperate changes needed in the grounds of Premier League football clubs.
The article outlines how Premier League clubs are prioritising finance over improving access and should face legal action if they fail to meet the needs of disabled fans, according to a new report. Several clubs including Liverpool, Chelsea and Watford are likely to miss a deadline on meeting basic standards.
The Culture, Media and Sport select committee says it is unconvinced the league would punish clubs itself. However, the Premier League says it is “working extremely hard” on access.
