Guide For Disabled Fans
Here at Barrow, we want to make sure that disabled supporters enjoy the best experience when coming to watch the football at Holker Street.
Our ground is in a process of redevelopment, and what we currently lack in facilities, we seek to improve through the quality of our welcome.
We have Assistance Stewards who can provide information and support throughout the match, including providing an ‘at seat’ service and escort duties if necessary.
Disabled visitors can easily access the fanzone for food and drink.
We have an allocation of tickets for supporters in wheelchairs:
Area A: West Terrace
Area B: The Steelworks End.
In addition, we support finding appropriate seating within the Brian Arrowsmith Stand for disabled supporters who are ambulant.
If you want to book a ticket, then you can do so by calling the Club on 01229 666 010 or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
We also have availability in these areas for disabled away supporters. A solution, in which disabled facilities for visiting fans are in the away end, will be part of the ground redevelopment for 2022/23 season.
Disabled fans will pay as per their relevant age category but will be eligible for a free carer’s ticket where required.
There are two entrances supporting disabled access.
Entrance A: Via the gate just along from Main Reception on Wilkie Road
Entrance B: Gate towards the fanzone
There are three disabled toilets.
Two of these are available to fans within the Study Centre and one in the Fan Zone Bar.
Both are located near to the two wheelchair areas and are accessible.
We have limited parking in two areas at the stadium that can be booked by e-mailing email@example.com.
Steve Herbert is the designated Disabled Liaison Officer. He can be contacted at firstname.lastname@example.org and will be happy to assist you with any queries or concerns.
We also have an ‘All Bluebirds’ group within the Club which supports our work with all supporters to ensure everyone’s experience at Barrow AFC is as inclusive and welcoming as possible. This year we intend to establish a Disabled Supporters' Association.
We have tried to cover everything you need in this section but if you do have any further questions then don’t hesitate to contact us on 01229 666 010 or email email@example.com
