The Club has reviewed the accessible parking process following our first three fixtures of 2022 and have now made the decision to amend the methods of securing your car parking space to ensure this is as fair as possible for all fans.
Previously parking was available for fans via the Ticket Office and over the phone. To make this process fairer to all fans who perhaps cannot travel to the Stadium, we have made the decision that applications can now ONLY be made over the phone – and NOT in person.
This will be on a strictly first-come-first-served basis and we have ensured extra staff will be available to answer these phone requests. Phone lines will open at 9am Friday (7 days before the home game) and we will notify fans when the allocation has been filled.
For any other queries, including purchasing match tickets, the ticket office will be fully operational from 10am.
We believe that by making this change it will give every 2022 Member the same chance to secure their space.
As detailed in our previous announcement, there is a provision for 57 accessible parking spaces for each match at the Totally Wicked Stadium (see notes below for further info on this provision).
With this in mind, and the current high demand for places taken into account, this provision is exclusively available to 2022 Members initially for each home fixture, with any remaining provision then made available to non-members.
When will the accessible parking be available for each match?
Accessible parking will be made live to 2022 Members seven days before the date of each home fixture and closed, 5pm the day before the fixture, e.g. the next home fixture vs. Warrington Wolves which takes place on Fri 11 March, accessible parking can be booked from 9am, Fri 4th March and will close, 5pm Thurs 11th March.
On the day of the fixture itself, if any parking provision is still remaining, non-members who meet the disability criteria detailed below can book by visiting the Ticket Office.
How can 2022 Members apply for an accessible parking space?
2022 Members who already have provided evidence of their entitlement to a disabled ticket to the Club when renewing their Membership, can book their place over the phone on 01744 455052 during opening hours (9am-5pm Mon-Fri, 10am-4pm Sat) – seven days prior to the next home fixture.
Any other 2022 Members in possession of a disabled blue badge must contact the Ticket Office in advance with their proof of eligibility i.e. their blue badge and a form of current ID. This only needs to be done on one occasion each season, so that the Club can record your evidence of eligibility. After that point Members can then call the Club to book for subsequent fixtures.
Please note: only one car parking space will be allocated per ticket booking
Notes regarding Accessible Parking at the Totally Wicked Stadium
The Totally Wicked Stadium has a total of 202 car parking spaces, of which 74 are accessible in the main car park.
Under the Rugby Football League operational rules, the Club must remove from that number 10% for away fans and a further 10 for hospitality guests. This leaves us with 57 spaces we can allocate to general spectators on matchdays.
The DDA and British Standards state we should have 5% of all parking spaces available for those with a disability. We currently stand at over 28% with that percentage increasing to 36% when all accessible spaces are available on a non-matchday.
At present we are oversubscribed by over 300 spaces on accessible parking requests and this demand has risen year on year.
Unfortunately it is not mathematically possible to grant every supporter their request for an accessible parking space.
Thank you for your patience and co-operation.
