AC Milan Broaden The Initiatives For Inclusion and Accessibility

An important step forward to ensure that all fans of the club are catered for.

AC Milan

AC Milan on their website have announced the renewal of a partnership with the Milan Blind Insititute Foundation, the Italian Union for the Blind and the Visually Impaired and the National Institute of the Deaf. The aim is to create a Club that is increasingly inclusive, open and able to meet the needs and expectations of everyone. This is a commitment and an important element in the Club’s strategy for social responsibility, which is one of AC Milan’s core values.

This is thus a reinforcement of ”AC Milan for all”, which has seen the Club leading the way in social inclusion through concrete projects on and off the pitch, which have been recognised by UEFA as exemplary and used in their studies.

For every home game, AC Milan guarantees an average of 250 free tickets for fans with disabilities and their carers. This is an experience made possible thanks to massive investments made since 2016 with the aim of increasing the number of dedicated sections, to improve their quality and offer a dedicated steward service. As part of “San Siro for all”, the Club had created an exclusive pitchside section, dedicated to blind and visually impaired fans. This is all thanks to the work done in collaboration with the Milan Blind Insititute Foundation and the Italian Union for the Blind and the Visually Impaired. It’s a new service involving the presence of two speakers, who - from the press box at the ground - recount every detail of a game at San Siro for every fan that requests the service. The commentary, thanks to a collaboration with Radio Rossonera, is transmitted to fans via a dedicated radio signal thanks to an audio device that is connected directly to the assigned seats.
