 DISABLED SUPPORTERS

 

 

Corner Stand

The club operates a specific non-discriminatory ticketing policy for disabled supporters and will ensure that the scheme does not differentiate between disabled people with differing impairments. 

The club does not offer a concessionary ticket rate solely on the grounds of a supporter being disabled. Concessions are given on an age related basis.

The latest ticketing information can be found by clicking here or by calling the Box Office 01226 211183.

The club reserves the right to request proof of a disability before issuing any tickets. This could be proof of receipt of the middle or higher rate of Disability Living Allowance, Enhanced rate of PIP or a letter from a GP. 

Receipt of a blue badge will not be considered sufficient proof of disability.

The club will issue a complimentary carers ticket when needed. The carer must enter the stadium with the disabled supporter to who the ticket was issued.

The club has 60 parking spaces allocated to its home disabled supporters in the South Stand (Grove Street) car park - postcode S71 1ET. These are allocated on a seasonal basis.

Additional easy access lanes are reserved for matchday sales on a first come, first served basis, charged at the standard £5 per car rate.

12 car parking spaces for away supporters are situated in the Queens Ground car park adjacent to the North Stand (away end) - postcode S71 1AN. These are allocated on a first come, first served basis, charged at the standard £5 per car rate.

For information about disabled parking availability for upcoming matches, please call 01226 211183 or email us at boxoffice@barnsleyfc.co.uk
