REGISTERED DISABLED SUPPORTERS SCHEME (NEW PURPLE MEMBERSHIP) 2014/2015 SEASON
The Purple Membership Scheme is now open for the 2014 / 2015 season for New Members.

The Purple Membership form, Disabled Supporters Eligibility Check Form and the Purple Members Terms and conditions can be downloaded below. Please read all the documents carefully before completing them and make sure you enclose ALL required documentation.

The Purple Membership scheme will close for the 2014 / 2015 season on 31st January 2015.

Ticket Transfer: A New Service for Disabled Supporters
The Disabled Supporters Ticket Transfer Service will enable Season Ticket holders who are unable to attend a game to either transfer their season ticket places to another Registered Disabled Supporter (Purple Member) or to a disabled supporter who is not a member. However, in the case of a transfer to a non- member either you or the disabled supporter concerned will have to provide the required proof of disability before the ticket transfer can be made.

Disabled Supporters will be able to use the Ticket Transfer Service via the Disability Liaison Team and NOT online. This is to ensure that (a) the carer/companion seat gets included in the Ticket Transfer and (b) that the disabled supporters concessionary ticket scheme is not abused in any way.

The Ticket Transfer Service will come into operation once a game has sold out and will operate alongside the existing Disabled Supporters Ticket Exchange Scheme. For further information please contact the Disability Liaison Team on 020 7619 5050.

HAPPY TO HELP
The Disabilility Liaison Team would like to remind all supporters with any mobility problems, whether or not you are a Registered Disabled Supporter (Purple Member), that we are always happy to provide advice and information about match day parking and access to the stadium to help make your visit to Emirates Stadium easier. Please call 020 7619 5050 (9.30am to 5.00pm Monday to Friday) or email disability@arsenal.co.uk.

Important information regarding match day parking arrangements.

Due to the need to park the away coaches in Queensland Road and also keep the road clear for any emergency vehicles we can no longer allow vehicles to queue up in Queensland Road prior to the car park opening on a match day.

Therefore, from now on please do not arrive in Queensland Road before 12.30pm, for a 3.00pm kick off or before 5.30pm for a 7.45pm kick off. If you do arrive before these times you will not be allowed to enter Queensland Road.

For all other kick off times please do not arrive in Queensland Road more than two and half hours before the advertised kick off time.
