Parking

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. These are based on a first come first serve basis, with a charge of £7 made payable on the day at reception. Please ring the club to make this arrangement. 

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.

Wheelchair Disabled

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

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.  

If you have any enquiries regarding our facilities or accessibility for disabled supporters should contact our Disability Co-ordinator Karen Wood on 01246 269300 or e-mail karenwood@chesterfield-fc.co.uk

Disabled tickets can only be purchased in person from the ticket office providing the above evidence of eligibility.

Hearing Impaired

An Induction Loop is available for the hearing impaired supporters inside the stadium. Hearing aids should be turned to the “T” position.

Visually Impaired 

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.
