(6) ECDSA Sponsor matchday mascot

ECDSA show support with Mascot sponsorship.


Exeter City Disabled Supporters Association showed their support for the Level Playing Field campaign by sponsoring a child to become a matchday mascot.


14-year-old Yazeed, who is autistic and attends Dawlish School, led the Grecians out along with Steve Tully at the Preston game. He was joined in the stands by his two younger brothers Ebaraheem and Abdulaziz.


Exeter City’s One Game One Community Group (OGOC) works closely with ECDSA on disability issues and has helped choose Yazeed  as a mascot through one of its partner community groups.


LPF campaigns to improve facilities/services so that all clubs offer the same kind of match day experience for disabled fans as non-disabled ones. LPF is keen to highlight that football plays a massive part in the everyday lives of disabled supporters.
