Goodison Park Stadium, the current home to Everton FC, has undergone major redevelopment work in order to improve disabled access and to become compliant with standards laid out in the Accessible Stadia Guide (ASG).

The redevelopment has included new elevated viewing platforms to provide better sight lines for disabled fans, as well as the addition of four fully-accessible lifts, two accessible wheel chair lifts, new stairs and designated entrances and exits.

The club, which has future plans to relocate to a new stadium at Bramley Moore Dock on the Liverpool waterfront, has also invested in four 300H Evac+Chairs evacuation chairs, bringing the total number of evacuation chairs up to 16 to make the stadium fully compliant.

Capable of beating a load of up 182kg, the Evac+Chair 300H is designed for one-person operation and avoides the need for heavy lifting or manual handling.

Richard Cairns, facilities manager at Everton FC, says: "We chose to invest in our ground regardless of the new stadium because, as a club, we are committed to all our supporters and hold the need for equality, particularly in sports, in high-regard."

Colin Moore, UK sales manager at Evac+Chair, says: "It's more important than ever for all football clubs to comply with the ASG guidelines by providing the means for a safe exit in an emergency."

"More clubs are moving towards compliance and equality. Evac+Chair is helping equip them with world-class aparatus and the necessary knowledge to ensure their facilities afford safe access for all, no matter how able they are," Moore added.
