Fans with Disabilities

Partick Thistle Football club welcomes fans with disabilities and will do everything in its power to make as much of the matchday experience as accessible as possible.

Fans using the Colin Weir Stand (the old stand on Firhill Road) and the John Lambie Stand (the stand behind the goals at the north end of the stadium) can access these stands through the large red metal gates of the accessible entrance on Firhill Road at the north west corner of the stadium

Prices


Fans with disabilities qualify for a concession which includes entry to the game for a nominated carer, if required. This will be £15 for league games during the 2021/22 season.

Further information about the ticketing details for particular matches will be available on the official club website. Fans of the away team should also check the website of their own club.

MATCHDAY INFORMATION


Home Fans

Wheelchair Users

Home fans with wheelchairs have the choice of using either the enclosure at the front of the Colin Weir Stand or the front row of the John Lambie Stand.

There may also be a limited number of wheelchair spaces available on the viewing platform of the Jackie Husband Stand (pictured below). This is used by Partick Thistle season ticket holders. If spaces become available then it is possible for home wheelchair fans to reserve a space. If a home wheelchair fan would like to use the platform then they should contact our Disability Access Officer by emailing  .

Fans with other Disabilities

Home fans with other disabilities have a choice of watching the match from the front of the Colin Weir Stand, the John Lambie Stand or from the Jackie Husband Stand.

Fans can enter the stands by the doors/gates if this is easier than entering through the turnstiles. Stewards will be able to give assistance.

 

Away fans

Wheelchair Users

Away wheelchair fans use the front section of the Colin Weir Stand.

For some matches where the away support is in the Jackie Husband Stand there may be a limited number of wheelchair places available for away wheelchair fans on the viewing platform in The Jackie Husband Stand. If spaces become available then it is possible for away wheelchair fans to reserve a space. If any away wheelchair fan would like to use the platform then they should contact Partick Thistle’s Disability Access Officer by emailing   to check availability.

 

Fans with Other Disabilities

Away fans are usually located in the Colin Weir Stand. For some matches the away support may be located in the Jackie Husband Stand.

Fans can enter the stands by the doors/gates if this is easier than entering through the turnstiles. Stewards will be able to give assistance.

 

Shuttle Bus

From 2.30 until 2.45 (Saturday matches) a free shuttle bus takes fans with mobility difficulties from the city end of the stadium at Firhill Road round to the Jackie Husband Stand. Please note that it does not run after the match.

 

Car Parking

Fans using the Colin Weir Stand or John Lambie Stands park in the streets surrounding Firhill. As kick off time approaches these spaces fill up quickly so if seeking one of these spaces then the advice is to come early. Parking is at the owner’s own risk.

Some fans park on Scottish Canals land behind the Jackie Husband Stand. Parking here is free and again at the owner’s own risk but many fans park here trouble free. These spaces fill up quickly on match day. The spaces here are close to the turnstiles of the Jackie Husband Stand.

Three car park spaces for blue badge holders of the away club can be reserved in advance in the official club car park. To reserve a space fans should contact their own club in the first instance who will forward names on to Partick Thistle. Many away fans prefer to park in the streets as it is closer to the accessible entrance than the official club car park.

 

The Aitken Suite

Situated in the Colin Weir Stand is The Aitken Suite Lounge which opens before and after Saturday matches. For midweek matches the lounge usually opens before the match but not after. Fans should see the website for details. Home and away fans are welcome. Live matches are shown and food is also available. The lounge has a disabled toilet.

Access to the Aitken Suite for wheelchair users is by the red gates of the accessible entrance. Inside the ground there is a ramp beside the stand which allows wheelchair access into the Aitken Suite. The stewards on duty will provide assistance.

 

Disability Access Officer (DAO)

The club’s DAO is Dougie McInnes.

The DAO is the best point of contact for home and visiting supporters looking to attend matches at Firhill Stadium and at away grounds.

If you have an issue you would like to raise you can get in touch by emailing:  .
