Match: Sporting Lisbon v Arsenal, Europa League Group Stage, 25/10/18

 

Arsenal's third matchday of the Europa League group stage gave us chance to travel to Lisbon for the first time (for many of us) and also a new ground to visit.  Knowing that we were pretty much guaranteed some late autumnal sunshine,  we travelled out to the city of seven hills in good spirits.

 

Getting There & Parking

The Estadio Jose Alvalade XXI is to the North West of the City and is built about 15-20 minute walk from the Benfica Estadio do Sport Lisboa. The stadium is surrounded by motorways, and residential blocks but there seemed to be no obvious place to park.  We travelled via the Lisbon metro system.  We took the Green Line from Cais do Sodre, near to the sea where we had enjoyed lunch and some afternoon refreshments.  We went to the end of the line (in about 20 minutes) exiting at Telheiras station. From here, it is about a 10 minute walk to the away end (Gate A1).   There is a station nearer to the ground, Campo Grande but this is not suitable for wheelchair users, and the advice for Arsenal fans was to avoid this station.

 

Arriving at the stadium, we had to enter via a different entrance from the majority of Arsenal fans.  It is marked as accessible entrance but in very small writing which you could easily miss.   You need to look for the entrance to the fitness centre.   A security guard took us through the back of the centre to a lift. 

 

Getting a Ticket

Our tickets were arranged through Arsenal. The tickets cost 11EUROS and were the type to print at home.   Disappointingly we had an allocation of just 3 wheelchair spaces. On arrival it was clear as to why, with only three spaces in the very back row of the lower tier available for wheelchairs – despite there being a lot more space to accommodate further supporters.

 

Spectator Viewing Areas

Our position was at the back of the lower tier (floor 2). A steward let us through a gate into the back of the Arsenal section (Block A9).  We were to be sat with our fellow Arsenal fans which is a positive, but having seen the seats and knowing that Arsenal fans will stand at European away games, we quickly realised we wouldn’t be seeing much of the game.  Our seats were not sufficiently higher that the row in front meaning we saw very little. Looking around the stadium, this appeared to be the case with each wheelchair area behind the goals at either end.  Companion seating is to the side.

 

There are approximately 4 wheelchair paddocks situated at the back of the lower tier at either end of the stadium. There was an area to hang flags behind us.

 

During the first half we saw very little of the game.  An employee for Sporting Lisbon pointed at the opposite side of the section which was not a wheelchair area, but positioning ourselves behind the back row we could see a little more.   We had to squeeze our wheelchairs through a narrow passage that was not meant for wheelchairs to use.  Two of us managed it, but one could not due to the width of his wheelchair.

 

Amenities

Right next to the lift entrance, is a door with a disabled WC sign.  This leads to three spacious disabled toilets, with drop down handles on both sides and assistance alarms within easy reach.  

 

There is a small refreshment kiosk in the Sporting Lisbon section.   After a few minutes of persuading stewards and police, we were allowed to walk through the gate to get a drink.  The counter is very high for a wheelchair user to reach over. 

 

After a good performance which saw Arsenal move onto 11 wins in a row, we had a police escort back to the Metro station.  I’d advise being careful, as with the crowd it is not well lit, and the road surface is not in a great condition.  

 

Lisbon in General

Assuming you fly into Lisbon, dont waste your money on a taxi.  The red line costs 6.50EURO for a 24-hour pass.  An accessible map can be downloaded from www.metrolisboa.pt.  I found it very easy to use, but just be careful boarding the trains:  the platform and train is not truly level, and there is about a 3 inch gap.   The metro stations have accessible toilets as well.

 

We stayed at the IBIS Lisboa Liberdade hotel off Rato; while Im sure there are many other great alternatives I was very impressed with the standard of the accessible room, particularly the shower.

 

One of the draw backs to Lisbon is the Cobbles and hills. They are everywhere however in the main city centre where the restaurants and bars are, the cobbles are very flat so it is easier to wheel over them.
