Our aim is to make UEFA Women’s EURO 2022 fully accessible to everyone, creating an inclusive environment for all football fans.
The best way to get to the stadium is to take a taxi from Sheffield railway station. You can also book in advance a private taxi that can accommodate a wheelchair. The drop-off and pick-up point will be on Shoreham Street.
You can also walk to the stadium as it is close to the main train and bus stations for those arriving from outside Sheffield, and the journey time at a steady pace is about ten minutes. The walking route to the stadium entrances is accessible with dropped kerbs and tactile paving along the way.
If you’re coming in by train and need support, you can ask for on station assistance at the time of booking so that station staff are aware when the train stops in Sheffield. Sheffield railway station also has lifts that provide access to all platforms.
