Virgin Media has announced it will be donating its sponsorship of Southampton Football Club's shirts to Scope for a one-off match in order to raise awareness of the issues faced by disabled fans in the stands. Scope is a disability charity operating in England and Wales. The match was the one opposing Southampton FC to Manchester United in the English Premier League on May 17, during which the Saints – the nickname for Southampton FC - wore the special Scope-branded shirt. A recent survey conducted by YouGov and Opinium in the U.K. has found that eight out of 10 disabled football fans have experienced discrimination at the stadium, and nearly two-thirds (62 percent) of disabled fans have stopped going to live matches as a result. Meanwhile, a separate survey among non-disabled fans who go to matches has shown that more than half (52 percent) think more should be done to prevent discrimination towards disabled people at football matches. Virgin Media has a three-year deal with Southampton FC as the official shirt sponsor of the club. The deal started in the 2016-17 season.
