Norwich City FC Disability Access.

I was wrong.

I said in a recent Facebook posting that I could find no mention of disability access on the Canaries' website. But I was right in that respect - I couldn't find it. It was only when Mark Harrison told me it was all under a sub-menu (of 'Club') called 'ability counts' that I dug it out.

Now I fully agree with that heading with regard to disability but on a football site it can mean a host of other things, not least Norwich City's footballing ability!

So a reserved apology for what I wrote on Facebook when, as a stranger to the site, I couldn't see anything about disability. So as recompense, here is a quote:


Posted on: Wed 20 Oct 2010

THERE are many facilities that have been designed to accommodate supporters with a variety of disabilities and to encourage all fans to come along and watch the Canaries play live at Carrow Road.


Facilities for disabled supporters at Norwich City Football Club include places for up to 83 wheelchair users and 139 ambulant supporters.

While the majority of places will be taken up by season ticket holders, a number will be kept for home casual tickets and away supporters.
