Spectator Viewing areas

 

Home supporters have 80 spaces for wheelchair users available to them, and these can be found at pitchside. 28 spaces for wheelchair users can be found at pitchside in the away section for away supporters. Supporters with ambulant disabilities can request front row or aisle seating in segregated areas.

 

NB: Under existing minimum standards for accessible stadia, the club should have 145 wheelchair spaces (123 home and up to 22 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 74% of the guidance and has a shortfall of 37 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.


 

Accessible amenities

 

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 both the home and away sections 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 by contacting the club reception. Facilities for assistance dogs are available. The concourses do not have rest areas included.

Match: PLYMOUTH ARGYLE v YORK CITY 15/02/14

Published: 26/2/2014

 

This was my first visit to Plymouth and as its a long way for disabled son to drive, we decided to stay overnight  at a premier Inn.

 

We were told there were no parking spaces available, so we parked in the local park & ride car park.

 

I bought the tickets in advance over the phone but they would only post them out at an extra charge.

 

There was a mobile burger stall outside where we bought a cup of tea as it was the pre packed powdered drinks inside the ground.

 

The club shop was easily accessible for wheelchairs.

 

On entering the ground I had to go through a turnstile where both tickets were scanned & son was taken through a gate.

 

Inside, the teabar had no meat & potato pies, so I had a pricey sausage roll which was very nice & son had a burger which was cold.

 

There were  disabled toilets just inside the ground.

 

There was also an ice cream cart there as if it wasn't cold enough, but people did buy them.

 

Going into the seats we didn't know where we had to go so I asked a steward who said “anywhere along the front.”  As we were the only wheelchair people at the away end we could choose where to park ourselves as there were loads of spaces infront of our own fans. But it rained and we got wet.

 

Outside after the match I again bought us teas from the burger van.

 

Altogether a good day out.

 Disabled car parking is nearby but still a 5/10 minute walk past home fans.

The viewing area was slightly below pitchside but at least with your own fans. I personally don't like pitchside seating and there were problems with people walking past throughout the game. The roof doesn't cover the front row so you will get wet if it rains (it did)...

Carers sat behind and if the areas was full, you wouldn't have been able to sit within the painted yellow box with a carer behind. Also, there was no real protection when fans behind surged towards the front after we scored. This could potentially be dangerous.

An ambulant disabled fan was given a ticket "from the general allocation" as they don't have identified ambulant disabled seating and sat 5 rows back. He had to move to a spare seat on the front row as the seats were so tightly packed he couldn't bend his knees/sit comfortably there. I suggest you ask for front row seats if you are in the same position.

Stewards and staff were very helpful.
