Leeds United will be supporting the Level Playing Field ‘Unite For Access’ campaign this weekend as we take on Brighton & Hove Albion at Elland Road.

The disability charity Level Playing Field have been celebrating its annual campaign since Saturday 25th February, with the campaign running until Sunday 12th March, and the main aim is to showcase the good work being done by clubs to improve accessibility and inclusion across sport.
