Getting a Ticket
Spectator Viewing areas
Home supporters have 108 spaces for wheelchair users available to them, and these can be found at pitchside and on a raised platform. 21 spaces for wheelchair users can be found at pitchside and on a raised platform in the away section for away supporters. (18 pitchside and 3 on a raised platform).
All ambulant disabled supporters can sit anywhere in the stadium providing this is safe and accessible to do so. We do not have any designated areas for disabled supporters other than seating for wheelchair users.
NB: Under existing minimum standards for accessible stadia, the club should have 159 wheelchair spaces (135 home and up to 24 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 81% of the guidance and has a shortfall of 30 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 accessible toilets inside the stadium. The Invincibles Pavilion has a Changing Places Facility and consists of a hoisting system, changing bench and an accessible toilet. The club shop, ticket office and away ticket booth are accessible for all fans and have low level serving counters to accommodate ticket purchases and collections. Catering kiosks in the stadium have low level serving counters so are fully accessible.
Accessible services & information
The ticket office does have a hearing loop installed. Match commentaries from the local hospital radio are available via headsets block K in the Bill Shankly Kop, please reserve headsets with the club a week prior to the game. The club are currently looking at getting our current hearing loop system updated for match commentary which will enable supporters to receive commentary in all areas of the ground. Facilities are available for assistance dogs on request, but the concourses do have rest areas included.
