Zero Project 2021/2022
CAFE supports European football‘s governing body, UEFA, it’s National Associations and Clubs to improve the live matchday experience for disabled spectators. As part of this, we provide audio-descriptive commentary (ADC) for blind and partially sighted spectators so that they can follow the action in real-time alongside their fellow fans, from anywhere within a stadium. To ensure an inclusive matchday experience for blind and partially sighted fans wishing to attend UEFA EURO 2020, audio-descriptive commentary (ADC) will be provided in the local language and English. Ahead of UEFA EURO 2020, CAFE delivered trainings to eight of the tournament host cities where ADC was not available or did not meet required standards. The service is made available across the entire stadium bowl via an FM frequency, allowing fans to tune in from anywhere across the stadium bowl via their own compatible devices. Additional headsets are offered to fans without their own radio / smartphone. The newly trained commentators are then able to continue providing the service for domestic games, benefiting the local population after the Final is over.
