Getting a Ticket


For information on purchasing a ticket please visit the Burton Albion website.


Tickets can be booked in advance by contacting Burton Albion on 01283 565938.

Spectator Viewing areas


Home supporters have 37 spaces for wheelchair users available to them, and these can be found pitchside. 12 spaces for wheelchair users can be found at pitchside in the away section for away supporters. Disabled fans with ambulant disabilities can request seats on the front row or ends of rows in both the home and away sections with extra leg room.


NB: Under existing minimum standards for accessible stadia, the club should have 69 wheelchair spaces (59 home and up to 10 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 71% of the guidance and has a shortfall of 20 wheelchair spaces. 

Accessible amenities


Both home and away fans can use the 8 accessible toilets inside the stadium and there is at least one located in each stand. The club shop is accessible for all fans and has a low level serving counter. Catering kiosks in both the home and away sections do have low level serving counters and so are fully accessible. There are rest areas included on the concourses.

Accessible services & information


The ticket office does have a hearing loop installed. Match commentaries are not available but games are broadcast on Derby FM.


Facilities for assistance dogs are available on request. The concourses do have rest areas included.

Match: Burton Albion v York City 14/09/2014

Everything was much the same as my last report.    

Pre booked a carparking space - £2 and bought a ticket over the phone.

The car park steward told us our numbered car park space, and we easily found this.

Stewards were all helpful and friendly, and said just to call them if we needed anything.

They even overlooked a ball boy in front of us hiding a match ball in his bag under the advertising hoardings, they just said it happens all the time. A very friendly club

We called for a prematch meal at the Millhouse close to the ground. A wheelchair friendly pub & 2 meals for a tenner, excellent value.  We had pre booked a parking space at the ground with no problems.  We were situated pitchside infront of our own supporters & had a good view of the whole pitch, though not all the wheelchair spaces could see the whole pitch without moving forward. There were accessible toilets close to where we were sitting. We didn't visit the teabar as we had brought our own drinks. The stewards were all very friendly & helpful.
