AUDIO DESCRIPTIVE COMMENTARY
Derby County Disabled Supporters Club and Derby County FC are pleased to be able to offer Audio Descriptive Commentary on matches at Pride Park Stadium.
Derby County Disabled Supporters Club have purchased the required audio descriptive commentary equipment. DCFC have generously agreed to maintain and service the equipment. The service will provided by Alan March Sport
Audio Descriptive Commentary is available to all blind or partially sighted supporters visiting Pride Park and is therefore available to home & visiting supporters.
What is Audio Descriptive Commentary?
Audio Description is a specialist form of commentary which provides blind and partially sighted supporters with a detailed description of everything occurring, far surpassing the level of detail that exists in traditional broadcast commentary.
This service will focus on the sporting action, and also provide extra detail that sighted viewers may take for granted, such as, presentations, discussions between officials and everything else of note that happens in live sport!
To book a receiver, please email Disability.Access@dcfc.co.uk
or call the Disability Team on 01332 667528 at least 24 hours prior to the fixture date, subject to availability. The club will then arrange for your receiver to be delivered by a steward to your seat prior to kick-off and it will be collected from your seat at the end of the match.
Please note: You will be asked to provide your Fan ID number, name, phone number and ticket information (stand, block, row and seat number) when booking a receiver and you will also need to provide your own headphones (round jack).
MEETING DATES 23-24 SEASON
All meetings start at 1930hrs in the Players Lounge at Pride Park
SAFEE STANDING INTRODUCED IN SMALL AREA OF PRIDE PARK
DCFC are currently installing safe standing barriers in the South Stand Upper and the South East Corner Upper (Visiting Supporters) sections at Pride Park. The existing seats will remain in place and the independent barriers are an addition to the current set up.
As supporters already stand in these areas, it is not envisaged that these will have any impact on disabled supporters. Neither platform in the South Stand is impacted and wheelchair users are located in the lower section.
It is hoped that these will be in use for the home game against Wycombe Wanderers on 16th December 2023
If you believe you may be impacted by this, please contact the DLO/SLO Emma Drury who will be able to answer your questions.
