Leicester City Upgrade Facilities For Supporters With Disabilities
- A range of new facilities have been introduced to King Power Stadium to ensure the ground is accessible
- Changing Places toilet recently introduced in the South Stand and accessible toilets in hospitality areas
Leicester City are pleased to announce a stadium-wide upgrade in the facilities available for supporters with disabilities has taken place, helping to ensure King Power Stadium is accessible for all.
The Club are committed to ensuring the stadium is accessible to all supporters and the upgrade in facilities will ensure all fans are able to make the most of their matchday experience on Filbert Way for future seasons.
As part of the upgrade in facilities, the Club have recently installed a Changing Places toilet in the South Stand, which offers a height-adjustable adult-sized changing bench, tracking hoist and adequate space in the room for supporters with disabilities and their carers.
The introduction of the Changing Places toilet will help compliment the facilities already in place at King Power Stadium, including the accessibility toilets which are available in every concourse and have recently been refurbished in the hospitality areas.
Away from the matchday experience, the Club are also committed to ensuring all visitors are able to enjoy and make the most of their visit. As a result, the Club have introduced hearing loops throughout all concourses and hospitality areas, while portable hearing loops are also available upon request from the main reception.
To support the above facilities, the Club are also proud to offer supporters with disabilities:
- Pitch level seating, in the East and West stands, for wheelchair users with spaces for carers
- Upper and lower platform seating for wheelchair users throughout the ground, with spaces for carers
- Designated seating throughout the stadium for ambulant supporters with disabilities
Furthermore, to enhance the experience for supporters with disabilities attending King Power Stadium on a matchday, the Club also offers an audio descriptive service which provides supporters with visual impairments a real-time account of the match action, which differs to traditional radio commentary and brings the supporters closer to the action.
