Here at the Kia Oval we are passionate about delivering equality to all our customers attending events or indeed just visiting the Kia Oval.
We are constantly striving to improve standards and improve our facilities and attitudes accordingly.
We are committed to developing an ongoing program of improvements and would welcome your constructive comments. This can be done by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org, Accessibility Liaison Officer, or if you want to book tickets please call 0203 946 0100.
The Club have created an Access Guide containing all the information a visitor to the Kia Oval with accessible needs requires that can be accessed, downloaded and printed here. A black and white version can also be found here for the visually impaired.

As we are constantly striving to improve our standards, facilities and attitudes accordingly, we have decided to launch a non-visible disability wristband. This optional wristband will enable fans with a non-visible disability to easily identify themselves to Club staff on matchday, 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.
This is a great initiative which demonstrates the care and attention the Club is taking to ensure every fan has the best possible matchday experience.
If you require a wristband, please collect it from the Pavilion Reception upon arrival or email email@example.com, where one will be posted to you.
