Accessibility at Tranmere

There is an excellent guide for away fans, which includes details of all

Blue Badge Parking
There is a car park at the away end. £6 if booked in advance £7 on the day. Book by phoning 03330 144 452 (ask for Kate or Liz).

There are 5 accessible spaces, but booking does not guarantee one of these spaces. Some ambulant disabled fans have reported that it is a long walk from the car park to the away stand entrance.

Away wheelchair users need to make it clear that they will need parking at the home end (Bebbington Paddock) see below, parking here is immediately outside the accessible entrance.

Official Away Travel
Accessible coach travel leaving Stadium MK at 9.15 am is £28 pp.

If you require a wheelchair space, you need to book asap or email to reserve, as depending on numbers, these spaces may be withdrawn nearer to match day.

Seating Areas
As the away end at Prenton Park is not wheelchair accessible all the info we have is from others. Our understanding is that there is no flat access seating in the away end, the best available is 3 steps down. Please note that the only access to the front row at pitch level is via a flight of steps. Away wheelchair fans have 3 spaces reserved for them at pitch level in the home stand adjacent to the away end but at the end furthest from the away stand. These 3 spaces when we have previously visited have not been together as you would at least hope and the carer/companion seat is behind the wheelchair space, so as a wheelchair user you cannot speak to or see your companion/carer during the match. To add to the misery, it is a very steep slope down to pitch level, you get wet if it is raining and on previous visits we have not found the stewards helpful and the home fans you are sat with unfriendly. So, all in all, we would not recommend Tranmere as a place for away wheelchair fans to visit, particularly if you have not got previous experience of sitting with home fans. When we have challenged Tranmere previously about this unacceptable practice, we have been told “it is an old ground, we have tried, there is nothing we can do”.

We have read that there is a Changing Places toilet, stoma friendly toilet and accessible toilet in all stands. The last time we were at Prenton Park, it was really difficult to get to the loo as it was back up the slope and then through a congested area where home fans were queuing for refreshments. Perhaps it has improved?
