Spiel: KAA Gent vs Tottenham

Veröffentlicht: 20/2/2017

 

I went with my son who is a Wheelchair user to Gent Kaa vs Tottenham at The Ghelamco Arena on 16th February 2017

 

When we went to see about some half time food, there was no Lowered Disabled Counter, even though if you look on Gent's website they show pictures of a lowered counter.

 

I was told by a member of the refreshment staff that we would have to queue with everyone else. It was pointless us both waiting and blocking the walkway so I took him back to his seat/space and i queued....For 20 minutes to get some Chips! 

 

There were 2 counters, 1 selling food only and 1 selling drinks only. I didn't notice if the Drinks Counter had a lowered section as i didn't buy any drinks. I know we didn't see any lowered counters at the food outlet.

 

Smoking in the stadiums in the UK is banned, is this not the same Europe wide? People were smoking just in front of us all in the Disabled Section and they had everything from Cigarettes to Cigars to Vapes, it was like being in Beijing on a smoggy day. Even the Steward in with us was coughing.

 

I have sent feedback to UEFA about this same problem and I await a reply from them, i will also email Gent to highlight the problems we had at the ground and see what reply i get back from them. I will also advise them to cover the first two rows of seats (the same as they do to segregate fans from each other)  in front of the Disabled Section as fans stand up during the game and the Wheelchair users can not see the game. 

 

Yes teams will lose seats for the games but all fans should be able to see the game while it's being played.
