CAFE was established in 2009 with support from UEFA to improve access to football stadia across Europe using the special influence of football. To deliver this ambition, CAFE works with national associations, leagues, clubs, disabled fans, fans groups, NGOs and key stakeholders to ensure a more accessible and inclusive match and non-match day for disabled people across Europe.
Professor Thompson is participating in a panel entitled 'Audio-Descriptive Commentary in Action', which takes place on Friday at 14:30 (13:30 GMT), and the session (and the whole conference) will be streamed live via: http://www.cafefootball.eu/conference-live-stream/.
