To ensure that the club treats everyone fairly and to enable us to take the particular circumstances of our disabled supporters into account when allocating seats, the club requires all applicants for seating which has been allocated for the specific use of disabled supporters, to produce confirmation of their entitlement to one of the following:
One of the following must be shown at the ticket office before the supporter is registered as disabled:
- Receipt of the mid-rate care element or the high-rate mobility component of the Disability Living Allowance (DLA), War Pensioners’ Mobility Supplement or Personal Independence Payments (PIP)
- Receipt of either the Severe Disablement Allowance or Attendance Allowance
- War Pensioners’ Mobility Allowance or War or Service Disablement Pension for 80% or more disability
- Blind or partially sighted registration certificate (BD8 or CVI Certificate) or evidence from an eye specialist, for example an optometrist, that the individual would qualify to be registered as severely sight impaired (blind) or sight impaired (partially sighted).
- Confirmation in writing from Social Services that the individual is included on their Deaf Register, or a letter or report from an aural specialist confirming that hearing loss has been recorded at 70 – 95 dBHL or worse
- Confirmation in writing from Social Services that the individual has a learning difficulty or disability. This may include Proof of Registration with Social Services, or if not on the Local Authority Register, a letter from a doctor or support worker confirming that the individual has a difficulty in learning new skills, or may be unable to cope independently. For children – a letter from the head teacher at a specialist school confirming eligibility will be acceptable
However, it is to our discretion what we accept. So be flexible and assess on a case by case basis.
Reference throughout this guide to a ‘disabled supporter’ is a reference to a person who can provide this confirmation.
Please note the club reserves the right to periodically check that an applicant remains eligible.
Supporters receiving the medium or higher rate care component of Disability Living Allowance (DLA), and/or standard or enhanced rate care component of PIP (Personal Independence Payment) will be entitled to a free match ticket for their personal assistant to accompany them on match days. Alternatively, season ticket holders can complete a disabled supporters form which is to be signed by a medical professional which will also entitle them to a free match ticket for their personal assistant to accompany them. This form is available from our ticket office.
Please note, the club reserves the right to request evidence to support this where necessary and require the disabled supporter and their PA to enter the ground and sit together.
Seats for personal assistants are located next to the disabled supporter’s seat. Disabled supporters who attend in a wheelchair must remain in their wheelchair during the game.
