Supporting Our Disabled Community

DSA NEWSLETTER

Welcome

During the summer the club has been busy making improvements around the ground to both comply

with the published accessible stadia guidelines and generally improve the matchday experience for

our disabled supporters

Fanzone

Now with ramp giving access to a variety of food and drink kiosks, BBQ, DJ booth and giant screen.

Main Entrance

Ramped access to reception area. Since this picture was taken a rather striking Eagle logo has been added to the flooring !

Main Stand

Wheelchair bays and carer seats installed in the front row of the main stand. Ponchos available if raining !

In addition there is a new disabled toilet facility to the side of the stand.

Whitehorse Lane Stand

A sensory room has been created below the Whitehorse stand to provide a peaceful and relaxing environment for any fan that may need a break from the stresses and strains of the football being played on the pitch above. Could be a popular facility !

Toilet Facilities

 

An example of one of a number of new toilet facilities around the stadium.

Arthur Wait Stand

Wheelchair and carer bays now extend the full length of the stand. If in the past you have experienced problems with some supporters

standing and obscuring your view this may give you the opportunity to select a more favourable position.

Food and Drink

Accessible low level counters feature at food and drink kiosks around the ground

Holmesdale Stand

In addition to new toilets the Holmesdale now boasts a smart new toilet and changing facility.

Also in the Holmesdale, when not being used to broadcast matches, the Sky box will be available as a

further sensory room complete with pitch view.

Due to access limitations unfortunately the box will not be available to wheelchair users.
