Accessible Sporting Venues in London

From football, rugby, cricket and tennis, to more unusual sports on skates and skis, London plays host to a wealth of sporting events and activities.

Most of London's major sporting venues are accessible to people with disabilities, although facilities vary. Make sure you tell the venue about your access requirements when booking.

Generally, stadiums and arenas are wheelchair accessible. However, in some cases there are a restricted number of seats for wheelchair users. It's best to book in advance.

Most venues offer a live commentary via a headset for people with impaired vision and hearing. Sometimes hearing loops or infra-red systems are also available.

Stadiums and arenas generally allow assistance dogs, including guide dogs, hearing dogs and service dogs. It's usually against the law for service providers to refuse assistance dogs onto their premises.

Most venues have blue badge parking onsite. In most cases, prior arrangement is necessary. Again, it's best to call in advance to enquire about any requirements or restrictions.

Some teams and events offer concessions for people with disabilities. Often, accompanying personal assistants or carers enter for free.
