Manchester Unitd have used the close season to make changes to their provisions and policies for disabled supporters at Old Trafford which was in evidence for United’s opening day win against Tottenham Hotspur.
The club have installed 16 seats specifically for use by family and friends of wheelchair users as well as freeing up the seats immediately in front of each of the four wheelchair platforms in the quadrants so that they can also be used by the family and friends of wheelchair users. This now means that families that travel to Old Trafford can now watch United play whilst sat together.
United also announced that club stewards will now undergo enhanced training as well as a specialist stewarding team being put in place to assist with any issues that may arise on a matchday.
The club are also inviting disabled supporters to have their say on facilities, policies and procedures at Old Trafford for both home and away fans. Developed in conjunction with the Manchester United Disabled Supporters Association (MUDSA), Level Playing Field and the Premier League, this will help the club improve access and inclusion in the future.
