On T20 match days, the Kia Oval has a food village at the Vauxhall End of the ground featuring some of London’s finest street food vendors. Please note that vegetarian and vegan food is available.

Accessibility at the Kia Oval

We are constantly striving to improve standards and improve our facilities and attitudes accordingly.

The accessible toilets are located in the 1845 stand behind blocks 2 and 19, by entrance 22 of the Peter May Stand and between entrances 31 and 32 of the Bedser Stand. The majority of these toilets require a RADAR key. If you are not in possession of a RADAR key, then contact the nearest steward who will source one for you immediately. Emergency cords are situated in all accessible toilets.

The majority of our catering points have been adapted to offer low level service points. Where these are not available, our staff will be more than happy to source any product for you.

Induction loops have been installed in a number of the seating blocks in the ground. In addition, all receptions, tickets offices and a number of catering outlets also have this facility. Switching your hearing aid to M or T can access the system.

We are committed to developing an ongoing program of improvements and would welcome your constructive comments. This can be done by emailing, Accessibility Liaison Officer, or if you want to book tickets please call 0203 946 0100.
