Information for disabled fans
We take great pride in the service and facilities we offer supporters with disabilities.
We encourage fans with disabilities to inform us of their personal situations in order to allow us to make your matchday experience as comfortable and enjoyable as possible.
Arrangements can also be made, subject to availability, for any supporter suffering from a temporary disability (e.g. broken leg/ankle) which could affect ease of access to and from the stadium.

Newcastle United Football Club is working in partnership with AccessAble, to produce detailed Accessibility Guides for St. James' Park.
The accessibility information in these guides aims to assist fans with disabilities and provide an additional resource to help home and away supporters plan their visit.

Each wheelchair space includes room for a personal assistant or carer, and has easy access from ground level outside of St. James' Park, then up into the relevant stand.
Personal assistants and/or carers, if required, are admitted to St. James' Park at no charge.
There are also 24 places for visually impaired supporters, with each seat rigged up to an infra-red commentary system which allows fans to tune into local radio commentary of the game.
There is no limit to the number of places in the stadium for ambulant disabled persons.
The club has around 120 car parking spaces on offer in the near vicinity of the stadium, with plenty of disabled berths within easy access of St. James' Park.
Newcastle United are one of only a handful of football clubs who offer a concessionary ticket for a personal assistant free of charge.
However, it should be noted that the club reserves the right not to issue a concessionary disabled ticket or a personal assistant ticket to anyone who is unable to meet the clubs entitlement criteria. All applicants are reminded that all tickets are non-transferable without the express permission of the club and that this process is subject to a regular review.
