Spectator Viewing areas
Home supporters have 119 spaces for wheelchair users available to them, and these can be found at pitchside and on raised platforms. 18 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 125 wheelchair spaces and they exceed that figure. 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 exceeds the current minimum guidance. They should continue to monitor this and carry out regular reviews 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 does not 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 and lowered counter in the ticket office. Audio descriptive match commentaries are available via headsets; bookable with your nearest steward on arrival, stewards will deliver and collect from seats. Facilities for assistance dogs are available. The concourses do not have rest areas included.
