Premier League Football Clubs Break Disabled Toilet Promise.

More than half of premier league football clubs fail to secure adequate disabled toilets.

 

250,000 British people with physical disabilities need help going to the toilet and this is a necessity for football fans.

In August 2015, premier league football cubs pledged to provide sufficient disabled toilets in their grounds, however it has now emerged that only 1 in 7 premier league football clubs has met this promise.

13 stop Premier league clubs are still yet to install a “changing places toilet” – a disabled toilet that includes a hoist, an adjustable bench and room enough for two carers.

 

Liverpool football club leads the way in this area and has installed two of these new and improved toilet facilities. Manchester City, Manchester United and Southampton FC have all installed 1 registered “changing places” toilet facility, whereas clubs like Chelsea, Crystal Palace and Spurs have yet to install these much needed disabled toilets.
