Who we are
Saints Disabled Supporters’ Association (SDSA) was formally setup in September 2010 during a meeting with Southampton Football Club and 5 disabled supporters at St Mary’s Stadium to discuss accessibility at the stadium. Following the meeting, a committee was formed, a constitution drawn up and a membership created. It was set up a not-for-profit community association.
