To favor the access to the stadium, A.C. Milan has set up a reservation service specifically designed for AC Milan’s disabled supporters.
In order to ensure greater safety and accessibility, supporters with disabilities enjoy specific places inside the stadium, which are suitable for the special needs of wheelchairs and people with mobility difficulties.
The Group also provides for a contact address for people with disabilities for information, communications and any requests: firstname.lastname@example.org.
AC Milan Group – following the awarding of UEFA Champions League 2016 Final and in accordance with Milan Municipality – decided to accept the request of CAFE (Centre for Access to Football in Europe) and to set up an elevated platform, along the parterre of the orange stand, to allow wheelchair spectators to improve the view of the pitch.
The elevated platform is raised above the previous walk-over flooring of about 35 cm, thus avoiding the parapet to be a visual obstacle to wheelchair spectators.
