Spectator Viewing areas
Home supporters have 70 spaces for wheelchair users available to them. Located in the Stan Cullis and Billy Wright stands offering pitchside viewing (open to the elements) plus mid-tier platform in the Quadrant PA’s sit behind. 14 spaces for wheelchair users can be found in the away section for away supporters. The exact location for Away supporters is dependent on the ticket allocation for visiting club. The Jack Harris stand suffers from restricted views if supporters in front stand. There are no specific arrangements for ambulant disabled supporters, please ask for pitchside seating within the wheelchair areas.
NB: Under existing minimum standards for accessible stadia, the club should have 177 wheelchair spaces (150 home and up to 27 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 47% of the guidance and has a shortfall of 93 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.
There are 16 accessible toilets are located in close proximity sited in concourse areas, radar key operated. Dedicated lounge behind Stan Cullis Stand provides a stewarded meeting place and refreshment area pre-match and half time with a warm welcome extended to Away fans.
