Match: Benfica vs Chelsea - 2013 UEFA Europa League Final

Published: 17/10/2014


A couple of hours before kick-off, we made our way out to the Amsterdam ArenA via the metro. There are 2 metro stations which serve the ArenA, depending on which part of the stadium you’re going to.  The route from the Metro station to the stadium was easy going, as we approached the stadium through the fanzone, there were the usual queues, we asked a security person about our best way to gain access and he directed us past the main queues into an area under the stadium which houses the car park. From the car park, we took the lift up several floors and voila!, there we were - out behind one of the goals. We were situated at the back row of the lower tier with several other wheelchair users and ambulant disabled fans.


Amsterdam ArenA had reasonable wheelchair facilities although I would’ve liked to have more options for viewing.
