Match: Estonia vs Northern Ireland - 6/9/2011

Published: 17/10/2014

 

We made our way to the main stand, through security and asked a stadium employee where I should go to gain access to the stand. He pointed to a flight of approx 20 steps! After some discussion, I got 'hoisted' up the steps by staff and friends (a situation most wheelchair users try to avoid if at all possible).  The accessible area was in a reasonable position, situated at the rear of the first tier of seats in a level area at the half way line.   At half-time I made my way out onto the concourse behind the stand where the usual food, drinks and toilets are.  I couldn’t see an accessible toilet so I tried to get into the standard toilet but I couldn’t fit into any of the cubicles. I approached a member of staff and asked about the wheelchair accessible toilet, and after much scratching of heads and discussions on walkie-talkies, I was told there was no accessible toilets in the stadium!  I had no other alternative than to be lifted back down the steps, call a taxi, return to my hotel and use the toilet there, of course by which point the match was nearly over so I didn’t bother going back to the stadium. 

 

The stadium looked quite modern and had apparently had some sort of refurbishment recently, obviously access considerations weren’t part of their thinking!
