Getting a Ticket
Below information from the Barnet website.
From the start of the season, disabled supporters will be required to pay for wheelchair spaces for all home fixtures. Any helpers will receive a seat adjacent to the wheelchair space free of charge. All adult/children disabled tickets are the same cost as respective match day tickets for non-disabled supporters.
Call the ticket office on 020 8381 3800 for more details.
Spectator Viewing areas
At the Hive the West Stand has 28 wheelchair bays and the East Stand has 14. All disabled access tickets will include access for one plus a carer.
NB: Under existing minimum standards for accessible stadia, the club should have 60 wheelchair spaces (51 home and up to 9 away). 75% of these should be elevated positions and the remaining 25% pitchside.
LPF's view is that many disabled supporters should be able to access general seating areas and only those with specific needs eg those who require extra legroom, or access via aisle seats or who need step free access etc should be allocated seats in the dedicated areas.
Based on the above, the club therefore only meets 15% of the guidance and has a shortfall of 51 wheelchair spaces. They should be working on a plan to rectify this deficit within a reasonable timeframe under the auspices of a full independent Access Audit.
Both home and away fans can use accessible toilets inside the stadium. The club shop is accessible for all fans but does not have a low level serving counter. Catering kiosks in the home section only have low level serving counters and so are fully accessible
