Disabled Concession: £15 (£17 on Matchday)

As part of the build of The AESSEAL New York Stadium, Rotherham United have made a huge effort to ensure that the stadium is as friendly and accessible as possible for our disabled fans.
The stadium has six raised wheelchair platforms (with at least one in each of the four stands) each consisting of at least seven combined wheelchair and helper bays). In addition there are three high level platforms all of which are easily accessible by elevator which take our total number of wheelchair and helper bays up to 113 for the stadium.
In addition the ground has disabled toilet facilities in each stand and area and also has 20 specific disabled parking spaces close to the ground with a drop off point outside the North West or North East corner of the stadium. The club has rest points outside the KCM Recycling Stand (North), and the Ben Bennett Family Stand (East).
For further information of our ticketing arrangements and our disabled supporter services can be obtained from our Disability Liaison Officer, by contacting: 01709 827768, by email to: firstname.lastname@example.org or by post to:

At The AESSEAL New York stadium we have 20 disabled parking spaces which can be purchased in the form of a season long permit. In addition to this we also have a large number of other spaces which, whilst not being disabled bays, offer the opportunity for disabled fans to park at the ground, again by purchasing a season long permit. *
Unfortunately there is no match day “pay on the day” parking available, however we have a disabled drop off point situated at the North West or North East Corner of the ground enabling disabled supporters to be dropped off close to the ground where seating and assistance is available whilst a carer or helper parks the car elsewhere.
Car Parking is also available for away supporters and can be purchased by calling the Red and White Shop on 01709 827768 or emailing email@example.com with a £5 charge payable in advance.
Please note that the car park closes an hour before kick off on matchdays and any drop offs will also need to be made by this time.
If you require any further information or advice please contact the ticket office/club shop on 01709 827768.
*Please note that all 'season disabled permits' have been sold for the 2017/18 season. There is a Car Parking waiting list that you can add your name to by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
