The Premier League is teaming up with BT to invest in a three-year sport and inclusion programme for disabled individuals.

Both parties will plough money into the scheme across England and Wales, with each Premier League club making the commitment to employ dedicated disability officers responsible for coordinating the programme.

While neither organisation has disclosed how much they will earmark for the project, BT has stated that it forms part of its goal to raise £1bn (US$1.3bn, €1.2bn) for good causes by 2020.

Local agencies and partners will work with the disability officers on arranging the inclusive sporting opportunities.

At the end of each season, the Premier League and BT will organise a national event to mark the achievements. The event will be captured by the BT Sports Film team.

“BT is a long-term supporter of disability sport and is passionately committed to inclusion and diversity for our people and customers,” said BT chief executive Gavin Patterson.

“Our partnership with the Premier League underpins BT’s firm belief that disabled people should have every opportunity that non-disabled people have.”
