Hugo joins the SpursAbility Christmas party

Club captain Hugo Lloris helped spread some festive cheer as he appeared as a special guest at a virtual Christmas party for members of SpursAbility, our Disabled Supporters Association.
Members had the chance to hear Hugo’s thoughts on the season so far, what his Christmas traditions are and got to ask him some questions of their own.
There was an added bonus when Hugo’s team-mates, Tanguy Ndombele and Serge Aurier, gate-crashed the party to wish members a Merry Christmas!
Hugo ended the call by saying ‘Merry Christmas’ using British Sign Language. He said: “It was great to be able to spend some time with members of SpursAbility and thank them for the incredible support they show for us all year round. We look forward to welcoming them back to the stadium as soon as it is safe and possible to do so.”
Jo McNicol, Chair of SpursAbility, said: “It was wonderful for our members to have the opportunity to meet Hugo. At this time of year it’s fantastic to see our members coming together to enjoy some Christmas spirit. I’m proud to be part of a Club that is committed to equality and diversity and ensures everyone associated with it feels included.”
Equality and inclusion are at the heart of everything we do as a Club and we work closely with SpursAbility, which represents and promotes the views of disabled fans.
Our stadium is fully compliant with the Accessible Stadia Guide and exceeds standards in many areas. For example, in addition to dedicated accessible entrances, the stadium has accessible seating and wheelchair spaces in all stands. It also includes three Changing Places facilities for fans with more complex needs, which have more space and equipment than standard accessible toilets.
Located in the stadium’s North Stand, our Sensory Suite offers a comfortable and calming environment for supporters on the autistic spectrum or with sensory impairment conditions to watch matches. The room is complete with a tactile wall, a bubble tube and several other pieces of sensory equipment.
