OH Leuven offer seating and commentary headsets for blind fans

October 11 – OH Leuven has become the sixth Belgian top-flight club to provide designated seating and services for blind and visually impaired supporters. 

Following an announcement by Leuven’s municipality, OHL will follow in the footsteps of AA Gent, Anderlecht, Club Brugge, RC Genk, and Antwerp in enhancing the matchday experience for blind and visually impaired fans. Via a headset, they will be able to listen to live commentary.

The Leuven-based club will offer the service to fans for the first time at its home match against RC Genk. Depending on demand, the club intends to continue its new initiative. A similar service is offered by the Belgian FA for national team matches.

OH Leuven has been enjoying an excellent start to the season, garnering 20 points from 11 eleven matches. They sit fifth in the table and defeated Zulte Waregem 5-2 at the weekend.
