We have just received news that Manchester United has opened a Changing Places facility at Old Trafford. We understand that this is the 800th Changing Places facility in the UK. Manchester United is the third Premiership club to make this provision alongside Arsenal and Liverpool.
This fully accessible toilet with a hoist, height adjustable bench and room enough for 2 carers will transform the matchday experience for disabled fans, who in some cases have been unable to attend games due to their accessibility requirements. It is hoped that this will pave the way for more football clubs to install these facilities and provide fully inclusive stadia for their loyal fanbases.
