Getting a Ticket
For information on purchasing a ticket please visit the Everton Website
Spectator Viewing areas
Home supporters have 86 spaces for wheelchair users available to them. 13 spaces for wheelchair users can be found in the away section for away supporters. Home supporters' spaces are in the Park End Stand , The Paddock and Lower Gwladys Street Stand. Away supporters are in the Lower Visitors area in the Bullens Road Stand. All are pitchside with little cover. Personal Assistants sit either adjacent or behind. Places for ambulant disabled supporters are subject to availability in Park End Stand (home supporters only).
Ambulant disabled supporters are able to sit anywhere in the Stadium. However as the upper tiers of Goodison are steep we would discourage any supporter who would be unable to exit the Stadium quickly in the event of an emergency, from purchasing tickets in any upper tiers.
Places for ambulant disabled supporters requiring easy access seats in all areas of the Stadium are subject to availability. (Home supporters only). Please contact Brendan Connolly (DLO) for further information.
NB: Under existing minimum standards for accessible stadia, the club should have 207 wheelchair spaces (176 home and up to 31 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 48% of the guidance and has a shortfall of 108 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.
Total of 8 accessible toilets within the stadium:
Toilet 1&2 - Park End
Toilet 3&4 - Park End
Toilet 5&6 - Bullens Lower (Visitors)
Toilet 7&8 - Gwladys Street
Situated close to seating areas. All with dedicated EDSA stewards on hand to assist. These have been refurbished for the 2016/17 season and are now fitted with RADAR locks.
Accessible catering facilities are available in Park End. Large-print hand-held menus and allergy information are available on request at all kiosks including the lower level counter kiosk in the Park End Stand. Following a successful trial in the Park End last season, the Club has introduced a new waitress service throughout the stadium for disabled supporters within the wheelchair seating areas. The new service will see supporters able to place an order for food on arrival, which EDSA Stewards and Sodexo staff will deliver at, half-time.
