Football Stadiums in the UK lack wheelchair access13 May 2014
In the UK Soccer is part of everyday life and there is a lot of money in the sport, but did you know, that most of the stadiums lack wheelchair access?
Having only three stadiums that meet the requirements is a crying shame for wheelchair users who want to go watch their team and canít access the stadium because they either donít have enough wheelchair spaces, or simply none at all.

I once went to a soccer match in Malta that had no wheelchair access and so I had to be carried to my seat. Since that experience I have not dared to go to a local game in Australia and I have always preferred to watch it on TV.
I just might go and check out how access is at my local Panthers (NRL) stadium and Iíll report back!
