Spectator Viewing areas
Home supporters have 151 spaces for wheelchair users available to them, and these can be found at pitchside and on a raised platform. 20 spaces for wheelchair users can be found at pitchside in the away section for away supporters.
NB: Under existing minimum standards for accessible stadia, the club should have 189 wheelchair spaces. 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 90% of the guidance and has a shortfall of 18 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.
Cardiff City Stadium has accessible toilets located all around the stadium. Should you require assistance, please see your nearest steward. All accessible toilets operate using a ‘radar’ key system. We would advise you to bring your ‘radar’ access key with you.
The club shop is accessible for all fans and does have a low level serving counter. Catering kiosks in the home and away sections do have low level serving counters and so are fully accessible.
Accessible services & information
The club does have a hearing loop. Match commentaries are not available. Facilities for assistance dogs are available. The concourses do have rest areas included.
