Peterborough United Foundation is introducing new sensory packs at the Weston Homes Stadium for Peterborough United First Team matches.

The packs, which are being funded by the Free Kicks Foundation, will be available free of charge to POSH season ticket holders with additional needs.

They can be requested by emailing

The sensory packs came about after POSH fan Scott Walton, from Fenland, whose son has additional needs, raised the idea with the foundation. 

A spokesperson for the foundation said: "Packs are designed to make the matchday environment more enjoyable and inclusive for all.

"We’ll then have a stand outside the stadium on selected matchdays where supporters with additional needs can receive their sensory packs."

"We’re also delighted to once again team up with the Free Kicks Foundation, who have generously offered to assist with funding of the bags.

"We’ve worked with Steve Thorpe and his team numerous times throughout the years and share a fantastic relationship with the Free Kicks Foundation."

Each pack will include: 

  • Soft stress ball
  • Pop-it toy
  • Ear defenders
  • Light up ball
  • Colouring book and pencils

Gill Wignall, Peterborough United Foundation’s CEO, said: “Improving the lives of the people of Peterborough is one of the key goals of Peterborough United Foundation.

“We’re delighted to be involved in the assistance of improving the matchday experience with the introduction of sensory packs for fans with additional needs.”

“Football is a game for all, and this is another positive step in making Peterborough United and the Weston Homes Stadium a venue where everyone can come and have a comfortable and enjoyable experience.”
