The ideal solution for blind and partially sighted supporters, is the provision of “audio-description” – a continuous and live commentary of the on-pitch action, provided by a commentator specifically trained in describing events for those unable to see them clearly. This is transmitted to a radio receiver through a headset which can be used anywhere within the stadium. This means that the blind and partially sighted supporters can choose to sit with their friends and family, and among their own club’s supporters rather than in a designated an area only for blind and partially sighted people, which is a system still used by some clubs. It also allows blind and partially sighted supporters from visiting teams to use the equipment.
