Following a meeting with representatives of Wrexham Supporters Trust, Wrexham Association Football Club board, Wrexham AFC Disability Liaison Officer and Wrexham Disabled Supporters Association on Wednesday evening we can inform members work on construction of the new viewing platform will begin in early September.
The new viewing platform will be available for use by both home and away supporters as the location is suitable for either set of supporters to feel a part of the atmosphere with their fellow fans. The platform will be constructed on the land between the Tech End and BKoncepts stand in the stadium. Due to its placement giving a front on view of the pitch, the viewing platform will be suitable for use by supporters with neck and spinal injuries as recommended by Level Playing Field ( https://www.levelplayingfield.org.uk). . Representatives of the WST and Football Club have been in regular dialogue with Level Playing Field and they have offered advice on best practices which the WST will implement.
The construction project will also include a refurbishment if the toilet blocks in the area to ensure they are suitable to be used by supporters accessing the platform and supporters catering needs will mirror those currently used at platform 1 in the Hays Travel Stand.
Wrexham Supporters Trust and Wrexham Football Club are committed to improving facilities for all supporters and are currently working on projects to improve the match day experience. We will continue to keep members updated of the progress and would like to take this opportunity to thank our members for their patience in the building of the platform. We are sure every member and supporter of Wrexham AFC is looking forward to seeing the platform in use.
