Southampton Football Club is proud to be playing its part in supporting the award-winning Disabled Access Day at Saturday’s game against Watford.

Saints will wear special ‘Disabled Access Day’ t-shirts when they head out to warm up at Vicarage Road this weekend, alongside their Watford counterparts. 

This year sees the third such day take place and it's set to be the biggest yet. Disabled Access Day is a celebration of good access and aims to encourage people to explore new places and gain new experiences by highlighting good accessibility at locations across the UK.

Last year, over 1,000 venues celebrated Disabled Access Day across the UK, which is more than four times the number that took part in 2015.

An estimated 11,000 people took part, visiting a variety of national and local venues including cafés, museums and football stadiums – and Saints and Watford will be playing their part this time around.

The support comes as part of the club’s continued efforts to provide disabled fans with the best experience at Southampton Football Club.

The club takes pride in the service and facilities that it provides for disabled fans and their enablers at St Mary’s.

Should you be visiting Saints’ stadium, we encourage you to contact us prior to your visit, should you have any questions or need additional assistance.

We are here to make your supporter experience as comfortable and as enjoyable as possible.

If you or someone you know has a disability and would like to visit St Mary's Stadium as a home fan or an away fan, please contact Khali or Daniel in our Supporter Relations Team on 02380 711980 or email 

Arrangements can also me be made subject to availability, for any fan suffering from a temporary disability (e.g. broken leg) which could effect their ease of access to and from the stadium.
