Getting a Ticket
Spectator Viewing areas
Home supporters have 146 spaces for wheelchair users available to them, and these can be found at pitchside and on raised platforms. 8 spaces for wheelchair users can be found on a raised platform in the away section for away supporters.
Pitch level wheelchair spaces with carer's seated immediately behind in the West Stand (Block A2, B1, B2, B3, C1, C2) and East Stand (Block H, J1, J2, J3, L1 ) A limited number of wheelchair spaces also allow for a carer to sit alongside the wheelchair user, if this is a requirement. For season 2013/14 PA's will sit alongside wheelchair users in the East Stand.
NB: Under existing minimum standards for accessible stadia, the club should have 186 wheelchair spaces (158 home and up to 28 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 83% of the guidance and has a shortfall of 32 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 the 16 accessible toilets inside the stadium. All accessible toilets in the King Power Stadium are fitted with RADAR Locks. Supporters are advised to bring their own key.The club shop is accessible for all fans and does have a low level serving counter. Catering kiosks in the home sections do have low level serving counters and so are fully accessible.
