Access to Ground and Facilities
Sutton United FC welcomes disabled supporters and in line with the club’s equality policy disabled supporters have access to all facilities open to that of able bodied supporters where possible. The ground has a large adjacent car park which provides close and easy parking and up to 4 entrances accessible by wheelchairs. The pitch perimeter walkway is at street level and gives easy access to all sides of the ground without obstacle. Wheelchair users who wish to use teh car-park should book in advance, contact firstname.lastname@example.org
The main stand is not currently fitted with a wheelchair ramp. There is a disabled toilet on the Recreation Ground side of the stadium for away supporters. A covered wheelchair viewing area is available for seven wheelchairs plus carers if needed and is adjacent to an accessible WC at the home end..
Admission Prices for Disabled Supporters
In line with guidance received from the Football Association, spectators with a disability will be charged the appropriate, full admission price to attend games at Sutton United. However, should a spectator with a disability require a helper then that helper will be admitted free of charge.
The club website is updated regularly with new information, and every page should be accessible for those with visual difficulties and compatible with most screen readers. Anybody encountering any issues with the accessibility of the website should get in touch with the club via the Contact Us page.
Matchday Programme and Team Sheets
Our average home gate is around 2,000 people, and the print-run for the match day programme is only about 350 copies. It is not considered economically viable to produce programmes in a format accessible to partially sighted people. The Club does undertake to provide team sheets in a suitably large font on request for home first team matches.
Commentary for Visually-impaired Supporters
A match commentary is usually available for all first-team matches home and away, and is currently broadcast via Mixlr.
Any spectator requiring information regarding available facilities, or who may need particular attention or help on match-days, is welcome to contact the club in advance on 0208 644 4440 OR by clicking here
