Tottenham Hotspur stadium wins gold for accessible design

The Tottenham Hotspur Stadium has been awarded the IOC IAKS Gold Award and the IPC IAKS Distinction for Accessibility.

Presented jointly by the International Olympic Committee (IOC), the International Paralympic Committee (IPC), and the International Association for Sports and Leisure Facilities (IAKS), the awards recognise sporting and leisure facilities globally that push the envelope of design.

Tottenham Hotspur Stadium was one of only four facilities to be recognised with a prestigious Gold Award as well as receiving a Distinction for accessible sports facilities.

The stadium is fully compliant with the Accessible Stadia Guide and exceeds standards in many areas. In addition to dedicated accessible entrances, the stadium has accessible seating and wheelchair spaces in all stands. It also includes three Changing Places facilities for fans with more complex requirements, which have more space and equipment than standard accessible toilets.

Located in the stadium’s North Stand, the Sensory Suite offers a comfortable and calming environment for supporters on the autistic spectrum or with sensory impairment conditions to watch matches. The location of the Sensory Suites enables fans to progress to their seats at their own pace and comfort. The room also comes complete with a tactile wall, a bubble tube and several other pieces of sensory equipment.

Other services available include audio descriptive commentary, a radio-based assistive hearing system, accessible stadium parking, and areas for assistance animals. Away fans also receive access to these provisions.

Furthermore, the Club has shown commitment to developing more inclusive experiences across its Stadium Visitor Attractions, including the introduction of wheelchair accessible climbs on The Dare Skywalk and British Sign Language Stadium Tours.

Through the Tottenham Hotspur Foundation, the Club runs a number of projects aimed at promoting inclusion and equality for all, including sport and employability programmes for people with a range of disabilities.

Tottenham Hotspur works closely with SpursAbility, which represents and promotes the views of our disabled fans. The Club’s Disability Access Scheme provides supporters with a disability, access to services and facilities that enhance their matchday experience.
