Rovers are supporting Level Playing Field's weeks of action on Tuesday when Andy Butler’s men host Portsmouth at the Keepmoat Stadium.
Doncaster Rovers is a football club for everyone and, following the principals of Rovers for All, everyone at the club works hard to ensure that the football club is accessible to everyone no matter your gender, sexuality, race, religion, or disability.
Level Playing Field works to make football accessible for people with disabilities.
Rovers have made huge strides over the past few seasons with the introduction of the quiet room at the Keepmoat Stadium and a partnership with Autism Plus which led to the autism friendly video guide to the stadium, while disability ambassador Jon Taylor has spoken a lot about why it's important to him that football clubs continue to do their bit to make football accessible.
In the summer of 2020, Rovers became one the Doncaster Deaf Trust’s Super 10 – ten businesses across Doncaster who are promoting and learning sign language. More than 30 staff across the club signed up for the Deaf Trust’s free British Sign Language course and players from across Rovers' first-team and U18s have been trying some basic signs from football terms, to Merry Christmas and even “we all love Doncaster” for Valentine’s Day.
The relationship between Rovers and Doncaster School for the Deaf goes back 141 years to the very first game the club played and continues to go from strength to strength.
This Tuesday some students from the school are joining all other Rovers fans by watching Rovers face Portsmouth on iFollow Rovers.
