    View from the disabled is ok considering its at thebottom of the away supporters stand and its an old stadium but it would be better if the disabled areawas higher up.Disabled toilet is located in the open and there was no access to the refreshments / facilities that therest of the Hull City fans had access to. My carer was able to go with a steward to get us both a beer before the game, however, we had to be out of view of the pitch in the open (luckily it didnt rain!). Disabled parking was just next to the away supporters stand.

    Travelled as an away supporter and had to sit amongst the home fans which isn’t great (albeit the section was in front of away fans so home disabled supporters were equally effected). Outside accessible toilet. We travelled by minibus but the driver had to take the vehicle away and return at half time which was awkward as he was also acting as a PA. View was pretty decent with no obstructions and slightly elevated. No independent access to refreshment areas so need steward or PA.

    I traveled to Burnley on a very wet day. We parked at the Cricket Club on Belvedere Road for £5. It is adjacent to the ground and about a 250 metre walk to the ground. The club is open to away fans prior and after the match. Hot and cold food is available at very cheap prices and we ordered a hot meal for after the game and two meals and two hot drinks cost £7 I would add there are quite a few stairs but there are bars on two levels To the front of the club there is easier access.
