Chelsea Football Club and the Chelsea Supporters’ Trust (CST) are delighted to announce that recent discussions have led to the prospect of re-establishing the Independent Chelsea Disabled Supporters’ Association.

CST representatives, Cliff Auger and Diane Akers, have been working closely with Chelsea FC and campaigning and advisory organisation Level Playing Field, and can announce that a preliminary open meeting will be held for anyone with an interest.

The details are:

  • Independent Chelsea Disabled Supporters’ Association Preliminary Meeting

  • Saturday 28 October

  • 3pm (after the Chelsea vs Brentford game)

  • In the Tea Bar, between the ticket office and Frankie’s at Stamford Bridge

All disabled supporters, carers, friends, family, or anyone with an interest is welcome to join this open meeting.

Those involved are really encouraged by the developments being made and are excited to see the association back once again. The aim is to amplify the voices of disabled supporters and work towards building stronger relationships and more effective communication between supporters and Chelsea FC, as well as educate and raise awareness amongst the wider Chelsea support base.

Support and guidance have been gratefully received from Fulham DSA, which helped lay the foundations for Chelsea’s own DSA.

We look forward to seeing many supporters on Saturday. The CST, Chelsea FC and Level Playing Field representatives will be in attendance.
