Manchester City install Changing Places facility

Manchester City’s home match against Everton saw the opening of a ‘Changing Places’ facility at the Etihad Stadium.

Changing Places toilets are different to standard accessible toilets as they have extra features including a hoist and a height adjustable adult-sized changing bench and more space to meet the requirements of people who use them. It also offers a height adjustable and remote controlled sink and a fully accessible shower.

The Changing Places facility is just one of a number of ongoing enhancements that the Club are looking to make throughout the course of the season.

The Club also has a new dedicated Access Team in place who will be responsible for improving stadium facilities and access for disabled supporters.

Dan Lovesey, Disability Access Officer for Manchester City FC said: “Manchester City prides itself on being inclusive and working with all our supporters to provide a safe and welcoming environment. We are delighted to have a Changing Places facility at the Etihad Stadium to ensure we cater for the needs of our supporters.” 

Rossanna Trudgian, co-chair of the Changing Places consortium, said: “Manchester City FC can be proud of the investment that the club has made in providing these facilities for those who need them. It is fantastic to see more and more Changing Places toilets being installed at Premier League Football Clubs and across the UK as we celebrate 10 years of campaigning.

However, there are still many large public places across the UK that lack Changing Places toilets and therefore deny people’s rights. With the help of our fantastic campaigners, we will continue to fight to make sure every single person in the UK who requires a Changing Places toilet, can access one.”
