Hi Eamonn, CAFE's general opinion is that concession tickets should not be provided based purely on disability. This is different, for example, to a disabled supporter who needs a Personal Assistant. This is a reasonable adjustment and so the PA ticket should be free (in line with UK legislation).

The UEFA and CAFE Good Practice Guide - "Access for All" has a dedicated section on ticketing. Please see section G:1 at http://www.cafefootball.eu/console_images/UEFAandCAFEGoodPracticeGuide.pdf

We would be happy to discuss the matter further with you as we would need more information before we could help, feel free to call me on 01244 893 586 or Skype michael-cafefootball

I am a Hibernian Supporter. I would like to apply for a disability season ticket as I am disabled and I received middle rate care component and lower mobility rate on my Disability Living Allowance from the government.

I would like to know if I have to be a wheel chair user in order to to get a reduction in the price of a season ticket at Hibernians home groung at Eater road in Edinburgh.

I would appreciate if you could reply to me.

I love football it brings me much joy.

Yours truly

Report on the opening of new East Stand at Easter Road Stadium - Jonathan Fisher Wheelchair User

I sat in the new East Stand for the first time on August 22nd 2010, for the match against Rangers.

The stand has three separate areas for wheelchairs, starting from around the halfway line, down towards the Famous Five Stand . I was in the area nearest to the halfway line. The wheelchair areas are elevated and are about four rows back from the front of the stand. Each wheelchair space has a seat next to it for one personal assistant.Since the wheelchair area has seats in front of it, I was worried that if the people in front were to stand up, the disabled fans wouldn't be able to see. However, when I got to my seat, I realised that the wheelchair area was high enough up so that even if people in front did stand up, the disabled fans' view would not be obstructed.

The only negative issue I encountered was the incline from the street up to the stand. Although I managed without too many problems, some wheelchair users may encounter some difficulty with this. Once in the stand, everything was on the level so there were no problems in getting to my seat.

There were limited catering facilities in place for the Rangers match I didn't use the toilet so , so I can't comment on how easy they were to use for a wheelchair user. I will give an update after my next visit.

Thanks to fellow Hibernian support Ian Colqhoun for providing pictures to illustrate Jonathan's above report.
