As we are constantly striving to improve our standards, facilities and attitudes accordingly, we have launched a non-visible disability wristband. This optional wristband will enable fans with a non-visible disability to easily identify themselves to Club staff on match-day, should they need any assistance, without having to give an explanation or the nature of their disability. Staff can then support the individual in the appropriate way.
If you require a wristband, please email firstname.lastname@example.org and one will be made available to you.
First aid services are provided on-site at every match day at The Kia Oval. If you require first aid assistance whilst at the ground, please contact your nearest steward or go to one of our first aid centres located behind Block A of the JM Finn Stand and between Entrance 32 and 33 of the Bedser Stand.
Toilets are located all around the perimeter of the ground, with baby changing facilities located behind Block 1, 13 and 19 of the JM Finn Stand.
The pitch will be located on the Peter May gap side of the ground.
