Access Information for Disabled Supporters
Getting there and Parking
1 FC Koln play their matches in the city of Cologne, which has an international airport with many European connections and also serves the nearby city of Bonn. The airport is less than 10 miles from Cologne's city centre.
Cologne has an extensive rail system with connections to many German and international cities. ICE trains and the Deutsche Bahn InterCity both stop in Cologne.
There are 40 accessible parking spaces available in S1, but these are routinely reserved for season ticket holders. You must apply for these spaces in advance, as they can become available if a season ticket holder does not intend to attend the match. Parking areas P2, P3 and P4 are also nearby, however there are no accessible parking spaces marked out and early arrival is recommended.
Getting a Ticket
To apply for a ticket, you should register your interest with the Disability Officer Marie Luise Siems. Please note that requests from members are given preferential treatment.
Spectator Viewing areas
There are a total of 100 spaces for wheelchair users, including 9 for away fans. They are located around block O7 in the East Stand, and behind row 3 in block O2. Complimentary seats are provided for companions, and they are located in front of the wheelchair user space.
There are 20 dedicated seats for partially sighted and blind fans, located in block O6 of the stadium. This includes 2 seats for away fans.

Complimentary companion seats are adjacent to the disabled fan's seat.
There are 5 accessible toilets in the stadium, located between blocks O4 and O5. A Euro Key is required to gain access to the toilets, and stewards will also have a Euro Key in their possession.
