Information for disabled supporters (as provided by Eastleigh)

Arrival at the ground

We have limited disabled parking spaces, but they are available free of charge for blue badge holders. These spaces are located close to the turnstiles and gate leading to the away end. Our disability liaison officer will endeavour to welcome you on your arrival.

Wheelchair users

We currently have 24 wheelchair bays in the Nuffield Health (South) Stand which are at pitch level, and an accessible viewing platform that fits five wheelchairs in the West Stand (home end). 7 of the bays in the Nuffield Health Stand are reserved solely for away. Companions can be seated either next to, or in the row behind the wheelchair user. This depends on the number of ambulant disabled supporters requiring seats on the front row.

Ambulant disabled supporters

There are 13 step free seats at ground level solely for away fans, but this number can be extended if more are needed. The segregated away area of the Nuffield Health Stand holds approximately 400 supporters but this can be increased or decreased depending on the anticipated number of travelling fans.

Supporters with autism or other sensory needs

We are currently working with our local branch of the National Autistic Society to enable us to become an autism friendly club. We hope that this will enable people, who may otherwise struggle to cope in such an environment, to have a positive experience when they visit our club.  We very much understand that being prepared and having an understanding of facilities available will also help to make the day easier. We have recently invested in some ear defenders and also some sensory/distraction items that are available to use. Please speak to a steward or contact the disability liaison officer prior to the match with any specific needs (dlo@eastleighfc.com).

We are also pleased to be able to offer supporters the opportunity to visit the ground on a non match day, where they will have the opportunity to be shown around by a member of staff. During this visit, any questions can be asked, and supporters and their families/carers can see where the facilities are and where the most appropriate place to sit/stand would be. Please bear in mind though that this will be dependent on availability (particularly the section of the blue seated ‘main stand’ level with the half way line where most seats have already been reserved).

Toilets

There is a toilet in the away end which is accessible for ambulant disabled fans but it is not wide enough to accomodate a wheelchair. Wheelchair users will need to speak to a steward in order to use the wider accessible toilet at the other end of the Nuffield Health Stand past the home fans. There are also fully accessible disabled toilets in Sherwoods restaurant and in the Hangar bar.

Clubhouse Facilities

For non-segregated games, The Hangar is a friendly clubhouse and has a good selection of alcoholic and non alcoholic drinks (real ales regularly feature in this bar!). There’s an area of decking outside for those warmer days, and live football is shown on a big screen.  It is only accessible to away fans prior to the game and entry is behind reception and the shop in the home end. There is a ramp for supporters to access the Hangar. Please note that for some games, the Hanger may be closed to away fans (disabled fans will still be able to access the toilet if needed though).

During segregated game, we will have an away bar in the away end for visiting supporters.

Both the shop and reception are fully accessible and a lift is available for the hospitality suite.

Tickets

Disabled supporters in receipt of higher rate DLA/PIP (mobility/care) are entitled to a free essential carer ticket. Please refer to the ticket information for up to date prices.

Disability Liaison Officer

Sarah Woolley was appointed as the club’s disability liaison officer in July 2019. Sarah is a wheelchair user herself and has experienced very contrasting levels of facilities and accessibility at stadia across the country in the National League.

“It’s essential that we cater for and welcome every fan, no matter what their individual needs. Everybody should be able to enjoy the game and feel a part of it.”

We hope you will find this information helpful.  If you have any further questions please do not hesitate to contact Sarah by email on dlo@eastleighfc.com or through twitter @dlo_eastleighfc
