Leigh Centurions and Leigh Sports Village Stadium is backing the goal to make Wigan Borough a more autism friendly place and we want to ensure that rugby league is open to all our fans including people with autism, their family and friends.

We have worked with a number of autistic supporters who have attended matches and have provided us with their view on how we can be more accessible.
