The National Football Stadium at Windsor Park has been designed to ensure that all visitors, including those with disabilities, enjoy an unrivalled match day experience.
The guiding principle for the stadium is that visitors with disabilities are accommodated at all levels and areas throughout the stadium and have the necessary facilities available to meet their needs.
The National Football Stadium now offers fans 133 wheelchair-accessible spaces and an equal number of adjacent seats for their personal assistants.
Spaces are located at the rear of the East (Family) Stand, the South Lower Stand and the South Upper Stand. All seating is accessed via lifts in the respective stands. Accessible toilet facilities are available next to each seating area.
In addition, each of our corporate lounges are wheelchair-accessible, as are each of our corporate boxes.
For individuals who do not require a wheelchair but who may have mobility issues, we also have a number of ambulant seats located in the South and East Stands.
All of our ambulant seats offer step-free access, with entrances via lifts or the ground floor concourse. In addition, individuals who require an essential companion / carer while attending the match can request a complimentary seat.
Visually impaired fans can sit in any area of the stadium. Match commentary headsets are provided by Soccer Sight and can be obtained by filling out the below form.
A significant number of stewards have undertaken specific disability awareness training and are deployed to appropriate locations within the Stadium.
There are limited spaces available for accessible parking. These can be requested for when applying for tickets.
