UEFA and accessibility
This version of UEFA.com aims to allow users to view the website in a more accessible fashion. It provides those with visual, hearing, motor or cognitive impairments a text-only version for more accessible navigation and consumption. Having an accessible version of the site gives disabled users greater freedom and ability to use the site.
Joyce Cook, managing director at the Centre for Access to Football in Europe (CAFE) said: "CAFE has worked extensively with UEFA, advising on the supportive measures required for UEFA.com to provide easier access to partially sighted and blind users. We are very satisfied with the results so far and it is great to see UEFA addressing such an important area of inclusion. We look forward to assisting UEFA with further developments to their website which will incorporate additional features to assist users with severely limited mobility, hearing, and learning disabilities. We are all focusing on a final product that will be a fully integrated platform that everyone will be able to enjoy and benefit from."

Declaration of conformity with the web content accessibility guidelines, WCAG 2.0
The conformity with levels A and AA of the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines, WCAG 2.0 was asserted for the whole of ac.uefa.com sub domain. Explicitly not for www.uefa.com. The current approach with a special site for people with disabilities must be considered as an interim solution on the way to full accessibility of uefa.com.
