GOOD FRIDAY GAME DECLARED AUTISM AWARENESS DAY

Club working with TRACK NN for the Macclesfield Town game

15 April 2019

As part of April's Autism Awareness Month, Northampton Town will be welcoming people with autism and their families to the Macclesfield Town game on Good Friday as part of the club's partnership with TRACK NN.

TRACK NN was set up by Tom Cliffe to help those on the autism spectrum gain access to employment through training, consultancy and creating opportunities, and to support their work, the club have declared the Macclesfield Town game on Good Friday as Autism Awareness Day.

Tickets will be allocated for a dedicated area of the stadium (East Stand) with access to a time out facility in the Education Centre for those who want to spend some time there.

Visual stadium guides will be provided prior to the game and support will be put into place to make the experience suitable for their needs.

"We are delighted to be partnering with TRACK NN to make Good Friday our Autism Awareness Day," said Chief Executive James Whiting,

"At the recent Port Vale game, we were able to give supporters a brief taste of some of our work in the community via our Community Day and this is another example of how we partner with local organisations for the benefit of all.

"We are very proud partners of TRACK NN and are delighted to see their work going from strength to strength. We hope anyone joining us through this venture enjoys the game on Good Friday and that our partnership with TRACK NN helps to educate and make more people aware of the fantastic work they do.

"This day forms part of our equality and diversity work to make the club and matchdays inclusive for all."

Tom Cliffe, Director of TRACK NN added: "We are delighted to be working together for this game, to allow people to support their local team. April is autism awareness month, and we will be working with the club to provide lots of information before, during and after the game to make sure people enjoy their day. If anyone attending has any questions or suggestions they are very welcome to contact me via thomas@track.org.uk."
