Away Support:
In April 2011 the club opened a new wheelchair facility for away fans in the north end of the West Stand. Access to these ten positions is entirely on the level and there is a disabled toilet close by. The wheelchair supporter is admitted at a cost of £13 and the carer, who will be allocated a seat in the row behind the wheelchair area, will be admitted free of charge. Booking of wheelchair spaces on a game-by-game basis should be done as early as possible in the week prior to the match. Please contact our Ticket Office on 01738 455000 to do this.

Please note that this area of the main stand is not always open as the ''general area'' for away supporters and so there may be occasions when wheelchair away fans are the only supporters in this area of the ground. However, we shall always ensure that the area is properly stewarded and that help is given in providing toilet and refreshment facilities.

I had the pleasure of sampling the new facilities at St Johnstone recently. I was pleasantly surprised when I saw where they were located as I had mistakenly thought they were located in the stand behind the goal. I prefer to watch the match from the side if possible. The only snag was the food kiosks were downstairs but in this case that seems a bit trivial because I''d far rather congratulate St Johnstone for their endeavours and hope that some other clubs will follow their lead. In my opinion after Tynecastle, St Johnstone is the second best away ground to visit.
