Spectator Viewing areas
There are 144 spaces for wheelchair users 100-pitchside and 44 are elevated. 118 for Home fans and 26 for Away fans. Away fans are located with own supporters.
NB: Under existing minimum standards for accessible stadia, the club should have 201 wheelchair spaces (171 home and up to 30 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 72% of the guidance and has a shortfall of 57 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.
There are 23 accessible toilets at the stadium. These are located as follows: North West Corner Groundsman Entrance, Eddie Gray Suite (North West Corner) South West Corner (under the score board), South Stand Lower Concourse, all hospitality areas in the East and West Stand.
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 hearing loops. Match audio commentaries are available via headsets, 10 headsets are available to reserve by prior contact with the club. Facilities for assistance dogs are available. The concourses do not have rest areas included.
