Approaching the stadium
The pedestrian approach from the south (Holloway Road) is relatively level, while from the north (i.e. Arsenal Tube Station) is largely downhill; likewise if you are approaching from the east via one of the side roads off Drayton Park. There are four step free access routes from street level onto the podium (a level pedestrian area which surrounds the whole stadium at entrance level); the South Bridge accessed from the southern end of Drayton Park Road, the south ramp on Queensland Road, the south-west ramp on Hornsey Road. The Media Entrance, located next to the Match Day Box Office, provides level access into the stadium. You will then be able to take a lift to Club Level or Box Level.
Entering the stadium
Each of the four Club Level entrances have direct lift access to the Club Level tier. There are a very limited number of designated wheelchair areas in the bowl available on a match-by-match basis which enables one guest to be seated with the wheelchair user. You will need to request spaces in this area at least two weeks prior to the required match with the Platinum Member Account Management team and the Disability Liaison Team. We cannot guarantee that all requests will be accommodated.
Box Level: Each of the Club's Executive Boxes is able to accomodate at least one wheelchair user. More wheelchair users can be accomodated provided that they are able to transfer to an ordinary seat while watching the game.
Blue badge parking
A number of Blue Badge Parking spaces will be available within the stadium, initially on a match-by-match basis. All requests should be received one month prior to the fixture and subject to availability. Users will have to arrive at least two hours before kick-off in order to access the car park before the surrounding roads are closed off and will be held back for up to an hour after the end of the game. Any disabled person using the car park will be directed by one of the car park stewards to the appropriate core lift to gain admittance to the relevant level. Their tickets will be scanned in the car park using a hand scanner. For on-street parking, Blue Badge holders will need to find either a dedicated Blue Badge parking bay or a vacant resident's bay and display their badge and clock appropriately. Blue badge holders must be present in the vehicle or entry will be refused.
