TICKETING FOR GUESTS WITH ACCESS REQUIREMENTS
Wheelchair User Tickets: The price charged is equivalent to the lowest price category, with a complimentary ticket for a Personal Assistant/Companion who is seated next to them. Wheelchair user platforms are located across levels 1, 2 and 5, including in hospitality areas. If a wheelchair user is attending the match in a box, then two seats will be removed for each wheelchair user. A dedicated Customer Engagement Team will be deployed at all appropriate locations within the Stadium to assist as required.
Tickets for guests with other access requirements: The allocation of ambulant tickets are for visitors with disabilities who are not wheelchair users. They are located in level 1, row 31 and the ticket recipients will be required to climb 4 steps to access these seats. Row 31 is above the wheelchair bays and therefore anybody standing in front will not block their view.
Acrophobia/Vertigo: Level 5 is the highest tier, which has a steep gradient and may not be suitable to sufferers of vertigo. It is recommended any supporter who suffers from this condition is allocated tickets in level 1.
