“When Harry stepped out onto the pitch, it sent out a powerful message: football is a sport for everyone

Like many nine-year-old boys, Harry is football mad. He loves wearing the red and white strip of his team, Southampton FC, and he could tell you all the players’ names.

For many disabled fans, football stadiums can be unwelcoming places. 80 per cent of disabled fans have experienced discrimination on matchday.

With your support, Scope has teamed up with Virgin Media, sponsors of Southampton FC, to show discrimination the red card. As part of the campaign, Harry was team mascot for the match against Manchester United.

Scope exists to make this country a place where disabled people have the same opportunities as everyone else. Until then, we'll be here.
