Spectator Viewing areas
Home supporters have 75 spaces for wheelchair users available to them, and these can be found at pitchside and at a higher level. 25 spaces for wheelchair users can be found at pitchside and at a higher level in the away section for away supporters. For more information on these facilities and means of escape please see here.
NB: Under existing minimum standards for accessible stadia, the club should have 98 wheelchair spaces and they exceed that figure. 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 exceeds the current minimum guidance. They should continue to monitor this and carry out regular reviews under the auspices of a full independent Access Audit.
Both home and away fans can use accessible toilets inside the stadium, there are 2 in each stand plus accessible toilet facilities within the hospility areas. The club shop is accessible for all fans and has a low level serving counter. Catering kiosks in the home section have low level serving counters and so are fully accessible.
