Join us to Celebrate ‘Unite for Access’

Unite For AccessStafford Rangers FC are very proud to announce that we will be supporting the Level Playing Fields ‘Unite for Access’ campaign at our home game against Workington AFC this Saturday, 30th March.

The campaign celebrates and inspires good access and inclusion at sports venues, which Stafford Rangers fully supports.

We are delighted to take part in this campaign as we continue to look to develop the match-day experience for our disabled supporters, with the aim to make the Stan Robinson Stadium as inclusive and comfortable as possible.

To show our support, we are inviting all new disabled fans with a blue badge, as well as their guardian or carer if they require one, to the game for free.

The first team will also be showing their support by coming out onto the pitch before kick off in the t-shirts dedicated to ‘Unite for Access’ campaign.

The clubs’ new Equality, Diversity and Inclusion officer, Heather Rose, will be available at the game so please feel free to speak to her about any further improvements we can make.

We hope everyone attending has a fantastic day, as we continue to celebrate access and inclusion at the home of Stafford Rangers FC.

Exterior Mural to Celebrate our Past

Exterior Mural to Celebrate our Past

A Visual Celebration of our Football Heritage

Stafford Rangers FC are very excited to announce that we have commissioned the fantastic Eve Whitfield of Illustrationsbyeve (@illustrationsbyeve) to produce a large scale exterior mural within the ground. The mural will be located on the wall immediately adjacent to the former Social Club and will showcase some of Stafford Rangers’ greatest achievements, as well as some Stafford landmarks.

A sketch of the mural can be seen below.

SRFC Mural

Eve will be familiar to some of you because she has been coming to Stafford Rangers games for several years with her dad, David Whitfield, a lifelong fan and a regular on the terraces.

All being well we are hoping to unveil the Mural at our home match against Workington AFC on 30th March 2024, where we hope to have some of the players on the mural in the flesh!

Come down and have your photograph taken in front of the artwork.

Prints of the Mural will be sold in the club shop.

You can currently find Eve’s artwork on her website or at Studio Fresh in Stafford, where you can buy her prints and products.

Unite for Access

Stafford Rangers Football Club Champion ‘Unite for Access’ Campaign

Every Fan has a place at our Football Club

Stafford Rangers Football Club is proud to participate in Level Playing Field’s new national campaign, ‘Unite for Access’ – a celebration of accessibility and inclusion for disabled sports fans.

An estimated 24% of the UK population is disabled, making disabled people the largest minority group in the UK. In spite of this, many disabled sports fans feel that attending live sports is not possible, due to the environmental and societal barriers that disabled football fans face, which make matchdays inaccessible.

The most recent Level Playing Field Fan survey found that 28.5% of disabled sports fans considered the attitudes of others to be a barrier when attending live sport, and over a quarter of disabled fans, 36.5%, said they are unable to attend certain sports or sporting venues due to lack of accessibility.

As a club, we believe that all people should be able to attend live sports, regardless of disability. We are committed to making the Stan Robinson Stadium accessible to all and will continue to take steps to improve, but we also call on all supporters to come with us on this journey, we all have our part to play.

We know that talking about disability can be daunting sometimes, it’s a complex subject matter. That’s why we invite all supporters, disabled and non-disabled, to engage with us on this important campaign and to ensure access and inclusion is at the heart of everything we do.

At Stafford Rangers FC, we want every fan to feel like they have a place at our football club. We want fans to feel valued and we want our disabled fans to feel that they are just as much a part of the match day experience as anyone else. As a football club we are keen to improve our facilities for all and have made some further progress this year on this front, with the installation of 2 new ambulant toilets in the main stand toilets and reprofiled the ramped access into the social club.

Heather Rose

As a football club we know we have further to go and therefore we are delighted to welcome Heather Rose to the football club as our Equality, Diversity and Inclusion Officer. Heather’s knowledge and experience will be invaluable going forward to Stafford Rangers Football Club.

We can confirm that Niah Payne has signed for Ossett United on loan until 23/03/24.

Niah is in need of regular game time and Ossett United is ideal given that Niah is Leeds based.

We hope the loan period is successful for Niah and that he returns in great form to the Boro.
