Spectator Viewing areas
Home supporters have 43 spaces for wheelchair users available to them, and these can be found at pitchside. 14 spaces for wheelchair users can be found on a raised platform in the away section for away supporters.
NB: Under existing minimum standards for accessible stadia, the club should have 100 wheelchair spaces (85 home and up to 15 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 57% of the guidance and has a shortfall of 43 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 and has a low level serving counter. Catering kiosks in the stadium do have low level serving counters and so are fully accessible.
Accessible services & information
The ticket office does not have a hearing loop installed. Match commentaries are available via headsets which can be collected from stewards and returned at the end of the game. Facilities are not available for assistance dogs, but are welcomed. The concourses do have rest areas included.
