We have four Blue Badge disabled spaces available for away fans located on the North Stand however more can be accommodated in the away coach park.

We have 22 disabled spaces for home fans however these are sold on a seasonal basis. Due to this no home disabled spaces are available on a match to match basis. However drop off points are available throughout the stadium.
We have designated areas in each stand for wheelchair supporters. Carers will be admitted free of charge if you have higher/medium up to date carer paperwork.
Ambulant Disabled are seated in each of the stands. Persons requiring a carer will need to provide proof of eligibility.
The evidence we require is issued by the Department of works and Pensions showing the disability allowance is in the Middle or Higher band of care.
A note of seat allocation will be taken at time of purchase to comply with the stadium emergency evacuation procedure.

Disabled tickets can only be purchased in person from the ticket office providing the above evidence of eligibility.
An Induction Loop is available for the hearing impaired supporters inside the stadium. Hearing aids should be turned to the “T” position.
There is a dedicated audio described commentary service, with 50 headsets available for use by home and away supporters. These are available for reception for a refundable deposit of £50 or credit/debt card swipe. Please ring the club to arrange this.
Tickets/Season tickets For Home Supporters
The disabled person will pay the age related price per stand. However, to be entitled to a free season/matchday ticket for a personal assistant, the disabled person must have documents proving that they are in receipt of Disability Living Allowance (middle or higher care component) or registered as visually impaired or deaf.
Breach of this system will result in the season/matchday ticket of both the disabled person and their carer being deactivated for the season/match.

The Chesterfield Football Supporters Society is the main group for Spireite fans.
The Society was formed in 2001 and at a time of crisis became the first supporters trust to wholly control a professional club.
That Society is now being revitalised to provide a supporters group that represents as broad a range of our fans as possible. The current Board of eleven elected and three co-opted members covers virtually all parts of the supporters base. The intention is that the Society works with the Club to make it the best possible model for fans and the community.
Many fans are life members of the Society and that membership is still current. Other supporters, whether they were members before or are new, are welcome. Membership for the remainder of this season, including a proposed AGM, is £5 but a £10 membership covers this season and next. The life membership is still available at £100. Membership makes fans a shareholder in the Society which is a registered co-operative society.
The membership form is available here [document] and this can be returned to The HUB at the Proact Stadium. Further information is available from https://www.facebook.com/ChesterfieldFSS/
