Posted on 11th March 2022 at 14:15
Disability charity Level Playing Field are celebrating their 18th ‘Weeks of Action’ campaign from Saturday 26 February to Sunday 13 March, which aims to showcase the good work being done by clubs and organisations to improve accessibility and inclusion across all sports.
This year’s theme celebrates the return of fans after stadiums reopened after the suspension of live sport.
As well as regularly attending our Premier League Kicks Inclusive sessions, twins Bailey and Brandon Wilson are huge Hull City fans and now volunteer as Match Ball Assistants on matchdays too.
We held a Q&A with the 13-year-olds to find out more about their support of the Tigers…
Q1: How long have you supported Hull City?
“We have supported Hull City since the age of 5 and our first game was Andy Dawson's Testimonial. We won the game with a 3-0 victory against Real Betis.”
Q2: How many fixtures do you attend per season?
“We both attend all home games and try go to as many away games as possible, depending on whether Dad is working or not.”
Q3: Do you travel to away games?
“We travel to away games when possible as away games are definitely our favourite!”
Q4: What do you enjoy most about live sport?
“The thing we enjoy the most is the atmosphere and the excitement of live football.”
Q5: How does live sport benefit you?
“Live sport benefits us as it makes us both really happy and keeps us very entertained and focused.”
Q6: What has been your favourite/most memorable experience supporting the club?
“This is a very difficult question as there have been lots of good memories. We'll say the Sky Bet Championship play-off final against Sheffield Wednesday in 2016...Diameee!”
Q7: Finally, if you could pick one player past or present to have a ten-minute phone call with, who would it be?
“Definitely Jacob Greaves, but we are both extremely shy so probably wouldn't speak anyway.”
