WREXHAM AFC DISABILITY POLICIES 2020/21
29 spaces for both Home and Away supporters at pitch level in the Hays Travel Stand. Fair cover with helpers sat behind.
A new platform at height was built in 2015 and allows for six wheelchair spaces, with carers, which are assigned by the Wrexham Disabled Supporters Association on a rotating basis to their members. Non members are also welcome but you will need to contact the DSA in order for them to add you to their rotas. Access to the disabled platform is via the 1864 entrance on Mold Road where there is a lift to gain access to the platform.
We offer a waitress service to all wheelchair users, meaning you can order food/drinks pitchside.

We also have an autism quiet area that is in the home end, but if any travelling supporters feel they would benefit from sitting there with their families then get in touch! We have a waitress service to take food/drink orders pitchside so that you don't need to enter a busy concourse. Wrexham AFC have both female and male stewards designated to the area to chat and support the people sitting there. We also offer ear defenders, the use of dedicated toilets and a quiet hub, with books and sensory lighting that can be used close by if you need some quiet time.
AUDIO DESCRIPTIVE COMMENTARY
We have a free Audio Descriptive Commentary service, for both home and away supporters, that is available at all our home games where blind and partially sighted people can hear a descriptive commentary of the game. All you need to do is bring your own headphones or earphones to use in a device given prior to the game. If you are interested in using this service please contact the DSA directly here.
Wrexham AFC offer an Audio CD of our match day programme for blind and partially sighted people which can be purchased from the club shop for £3.

Either a DLA entitlement letter or a PIP entitlement letter will need to be shown at the ticket office in advance to obtain your free carer ticket - match ticket required from the Ticket Office - 01978 89 1864
