AEK: System for experiential match description for visually impaired people at Opap Arena


A great initiative was announced by PAE AEK, as from the first European game of the new season, there will be a possibility of experiential description of the matches for the visually impaired. In this way, these people will feel the pulse of every match.

In fact, the example of the loyal friend of “Enos”, Markos Kykivarakis, is presented, who will now be able to feel even closer to his beloved team.

The PAE announcement:

PAE AEK, from the first day of the construction of our new home OPAP ARENA, wishes to make the stadium as friendly as possible to ALL our fans.

After all, this is what the effort of the CAFE Organization (Center for Access to Football in Europe) which, in collaboration with UEFA, wishes to direct every Club that creates its new stadium to this philosophy.

In this direction, the upgrade and increase of disabled seats at our stadium was recently announced.

In this context and in order to help them watch our matches, our visually impaired friends will, from this year, starting with our first European match, have the help of a system that will allow them to listen to the “live” experiential description of (every) match, through the commentary of equivalent audio description.

With the promise that the actions and initiatives will continue.

The experience of Markos Kykivarakis, a loyal friend of our team who has vision problems for many years, is vivid…
