Accessiblity | Disabled Access Day

As part of the club's ongoing commitment to accessibility at Vicarage Road, we will be supporting the award-winning ‘Disabled Access Day’ in the run-up to this weekend’s (March 4th) match against Southampton.

This year sees the third such day take place and it's set to be the biggest yet. Disabled Access Day is a celebration of good access and aims to encourage people to explore new places and gain new experiences by highlighting good accessibility at locations across the UK. 

With new wheelchair and easy access spaces being opened at Vicarage Road during the course of the season so far, we’re hoping that new supporters who may not have attended before or who haven't heard about our new facilities will take the chance to visit us.  

Last year, over 1,000 venues celebrated Disabled Access Day across the UK, which is more than four times the number that took part in 2015. An estimated 11,000 people took part, visiting a variety of national and local venues including cafés, museums and football stadiums. 

The club has held a number of tickets for wheelchair positions, as well as ambulant/easy access spaces for supporters with mobility impairments, for Saturday’s game.

We also have several ‘Soccer Sight’ headsets which provide commentary for supporters with visual impairments and can be delivered straight to your seat, while car parking is also available, subject to availability. 

Where the need for a personal assistant has been identified, the club will admit the personal assistant free of charge. You will be entitled to a free personal assistant if you are in receipt of Middle or Higher rate components of Disability Living Allowance (DLA) or Personal Independence Payment (P.I.P.), however proof may be required before tickets are issued.
 


Tickets can be booked by calling the ticket office hotline on 01923 223023 or by emailing disabled.supporters@watfordfc.com. Please mention Disabled Access Day when you get in touch.
