Disabled facilities at Paisley 2021 Stadium praised

Club News

St Mirren's wheelchair facilities have been praised by a national disability-access review website.

Euan's Guide is a UK-wide site that reviews buildings, venues and businesses over access for people with disabilities

And in a recent article on Scottish football grounds, the Paisley 2021 Stadium was (along with Celtic Park) one of only two grounds given an overall five-star rating.

St Mirren recently opened a new disabled platform at the back of the main stand, in partnership with the St Mirren Disabled Supporters Association.

The platform was part-funded by members of SMISA as the first contribution from their quarterly members spend under the #BuyTheBuds scheme.

Club chairman Gordon Scott said: "We are very proud of the disabled facilities here at the Paisley 2021 Stadium, which were recently upgraded to include the new platform. It is nice to see the club being recognised by this website."

John Clark, chair of the St Mirren Disabled Supporters Association, said: "The disabled set-up at St Mirren is now among the best in Scotland and that speaks well not only of SMISA members, but of the wider fan base.

As co-secretary of the Scottish Disabled Supporters Association I will seek to share the good practices and example set at St Mirren.

"This represents phase 1 of the development of the stadium as we seek to further improve the accessibility of our stadium.

 

NOTE: I had not intended starting a new thread on this but was unable to post on the existing thread about the platform.
