Autism Packs Available On Matchdays At King Power Stadium

Recommended Posts

Good gesture, anything to help include people is good. Be interested to know what is in an autism pack though?

(forgive my ignorance)

Presumably it's things that would help the Autistic person; such as ear protectors if any stadium noise becomes too loud, and/or other useful things that would help them manage other matters they struggle with in their daily lives due to their condition that may occur whilst at the stadium.

The Birch says we can and we do make a difference and I personally received a letter saying my vocal presence is outstanding.

Tickets to Arsenal?!

 

In all seriousness, another great incentive from the club.

This is a pretty great initiative from the club, I know at least one Basketball franchise in the States offers such packs as well as a space within the arena which is fitted to be autism-friendly, with ambient lighting, distractions and the actual game on a TV for kids to watch. If this is the move they're making perhaps they're looking to implement something similar during the expansion?

 

Either way its a great action by the Club, it take very little realistically to put in place but can make such a difference to the few it does cater for, I like to think that for the most part Leicester's been a club at the forefront of tolerance and positive action and long may it continue, it can only hep the Club and it's supporters.

This is great news and shows that the club cares about all their fans. fans with autism find loud noises or unfamiliar surroundings overwhelming, stressful and uncomfortable. there are a lot of fans that have autism that are very passionate about Leicester City. they want to enjoy the experience of watching their team like any other fan, they just want to feel safe and secure.
