SEASON TICKETS & MATCH DAY TICKETS
 
Season tickets and match tickets for disabled supporters are priced within the appropriate age band category and include a complimentary ticket, if required, for their PA/companion*.
 
*Applies to those in receipt of high/medium Disability Living Allowance (DLA) or enhanced Personal Independence Payment (PIP).  
 
For further enquiries please contact the Blackpool FC Ticket Office on 0844 847 1953 (option 3).
 
AMBULANT DISABLED SUPPORTERS
 
Disabled supporters not requiring wheelchair access can sit anywhere in the ground with their PA/essential companion, subject to qualification, providing they are able to access the area, subject to safety requirements of the ground. 
 
Requirements should be stipulated at the time of purchasing a ticket to ensure appropriate seating is provided.
 
WHEELCHAIR USERS
 
Wheelchair users are accommodated on the front rows of the North, South and West stands, which allow the PA/essential companion to sit alongside them. 
 
THE ROLE OF A PERSONAL ASSISTANT/ESSENTIAL COMPANION
 
By accepting the free ticket your companion accepts responsibility for providing you with the support you need to attend the match. This includes being able to provide you with additional assistance during the course of an emergency evacuation.
 
The stewards at the match are unable to provide assistance in excess of their typical role and general reasonable adjustments, so it’s important that, if you need help moving around, your PA/companion is ready and willing to support you with this.
 
TEMPORARY MOBILITY RESTRICTIONS
 
Supporters suffering from temporary mobility restrictions (e.g broken leg) that may affect access to the stadium or seating areas, should contact the ticket office. Alternative seating will be offered, subject to availability.
 
BLIND/PARTIALLY SIGHTED SUPPORTERS
 
A match commentary service is provided for blind/partially sighted supporters, with five complimentary headsets available from the ticket office, allowing supporters to enjoy the game. For further information, please contact Disability Liaison Officer on 07875236576 or via email - chris.beveridge@blackpoolfc.co.uk 
 
GUIDE DOGS/ASSISTANCE DOGS
 
Any supporter wishing to attend the stadium with a guide dog/assistance dog needs to contact the Disability Liaison Officer, Chris Beveridge on 07875236576 or via email - chris.beveridge@blackpoolfc.co.uk - to ensure necessary arrangements are in place. 
 
ACCESSIBLE TOILETS
 
Please note that we have accessible toilets located all around the stadium and these are clearly signed. Should you require assistance, please seek advice from the nearest steward. 
 
CAR PARKING – DISABLED SUPPORTERS/SUPPORTERS WITH MOBILITY PROBLEMS
 
Parking at the stadium for disabled supporters is limited, with the disabled bays currently available on match days reserved by home season ticket holders. However, a council car park adjacent to the stadium offers free parking for up to three hours for those with a blue badge clearly displayed.
