Water fountains are available around the ground or, alternatively, staff at any bar will be able to give you tap water for free.
Please see below for a map of the ground.
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 collect it from Theresa Peters in the Pavilion Reception upon arrival or email email@example.com and one will be posted to you.
Fans attending with accessible needs can view our access guide here.
