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.

I went to the game with a blind friend. I rang Traveline, who told me we could get the 100 bus from Plymouth train station to the Park And Ride, which was 4 minutes walk from the ground. We found a friendly helpful female home fan, who found us a steward to help us. He took us to another steward, who walked us to the ticket office to get our tickets, which I'd booked over the phone, then to the reception, where we collected the headsets, which were apparently the last two out of the ten, then to the toilets in the directors area, and then to our seats, which were on the front row. We were visited by a steward at half time, who said he'd take us to the bus stop, which he did after the game. We got the 100 back to Plymouth train station. The driver forgot us first time round, so we had to go round again. We had to walk over the bridge to get back to the station.

Match: Plymouth v Tranmere Rovers

This was our first visit to Plymouth. It is a VERY long way down to the south west but we arranged to stay with friends in Taunton. We were able to park in the nearby park and ride car park but we're told that there were no designated disabled bays. A friend had arranged tickets for the pre-game fan festival that takes place in a large marquee next to the ground. The home fans were really friendly and welcoming - the ticket entitled us to a pasty (very tasty) and a beer. The entertainers were keen to have a bit of banter  with us and everything was done in good spirit. Unfortunately we had to walk ALL of the way around 3 sides of the stadium to access the away section. The positive aspect of this was that we learned that the club offered specialised commentary for visually impaired supporters and we were able to arrange this at short notice for my father. The match commentary was excellent and informative - one commentator was very professional whilst the other was very excitable & quite biased. The stewards were reasonably helpful & said that we could sit anywhere. The view from the stand was good, but the rain did sweep in and soak those in the front few rows - this would be a particular problem for wheelchair users. Our opinion of the match experience was coloured by the fact that a 3-2 defeat condemned us to relegation & non-league status. It took over 20 minutes to clear the car park. Given the chance, we would like to return to watch a game in happier circumstances.

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.
