Spectator Viewing areas

 

Home supporters have 25 spaces for wheelchair users available to them, and these can be found at pitchside. 8 spaces for wheelchair users can be found at pitchside in the away section for away supporters.

 

NB: Under existing minimum standards for accessible stadia, the club should have 100 wheelchair spaces (85 home and up to 15 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 33% of the guidance and has a shortfall of 67 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, they are located near exit 1 for away fans, the Vere suite, South Lower and Woodlands. The club shop is accessible for all fans and has a low level serving counter. Catering kiosks in the home and away sections do have low level serving counters and so are fully accessible.

Match: Visited as Away Fans on 24/03/12

Published: 26/10/2012

 

All stewards at Wycombe were excellent. Upon arrival at Adams Park in our club’s wheelchair accessible minibus we were immediately directed to a flat parking space next to our entrance. Info point to collect our tickets was also close-by. (Away clubs’ official transport coaches drop off/pick up outside the ground.) Wheelchair spaces for away fans at front of away supporters stand at pitch level (about 8 with 2 carer seats between each space). Walk from gate to wheelchair spaces at the end of the away stand was a distance but stewards accompanied all disabled fans to their seats and provided a wheelchair for this when required. Stewards were eager to check we were happy and stressed that if we needed anything to call them over. They specifically mentioned that they tried not to walk in front of us during play and if this became a nuisance to just tell them. (As this has been an issue at other clubs it was appreciated, although this was not a problem we encounted at Wycombe). Lots of room between wheelchair spaces and the hoardings round the pitch. I did note that hoardings were higher than usual to look over. One accessible toilet as you go in, close to the refreshment outlets. Relatively small with a steep slope at the door where a step has been ramped. That said, it was very clean with hot water and I coped in large powered chair. Steward saw me approaching and immediately opened the door for me rather than watch me struggle as I have known elsewhere. On the day we visited we had an unexpected heatwave and we were sat directly in the sun. During the second half stewards checked we are all ok and offered free drinks of water which was much appreciated. Only negatives were that the headset commentary for sight impaired fans is only available if you sit with the home fans and something which you share with all fans at Wycombe, getting back to the main road at the end of the game is a very slow process. The stadium is at the back of industrial park which becomes a total bottle neck. Don’t expect a quick get a way.
