Michael Rice, head of communication at the Centre for Access to Football in Europe (CAFE), an advisory body associated with UEFA, has this week been in Barcelona to check on the work done by the Club with regards to accessibility to stadiums, and he’s also observed the support of the 'CAFE Action Week,’ aimed at raising awareness of the problems of accessibility in football.
FC Barcelona invited Mr. Rice to the match against Atlético last Sunday in order to give visibility to the campaign. Rice, accompanied by members of the Office of Specialised Attention (OAE), verified the operation of the service and also received a brief explanation of the Espai Barça project and the new stadium.
At the Llotja President Suñol, Mr. Rice was presented with a shirt by the first vice president, Jordi Cardoner, and the Head of the OAE, Emili Rousaud. It commemorated the campaign and a photograph was taken next to a poster with the slogan 'Total Soccer - Total Access.’
