REGISTERED DISABLED SUPPORTERS SCHEME (NEW PURPLE MEMBERSHIP) 2016/2017 SEASON
As we are now approaching the end of the 2016/2017 season disabled supporters wanting to join the Registered Disabled Supporters Scheme (Purple Membership) should first contact the Disability Liaison Team (DLT) on 020 7619 5050 (9.30am to 5.00pm Monday to Friday except Bank Holidays).
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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
