Review by Arsenal fan Vinal Vyas
Why did you choose to go to this game and why were you looking forward to it?
I am a season ticket holder at Arsenal and a massive fan of the Gunners. I have been supporting Arsenal since 2005. I go to all the games home and away. Been to loads of football stadiums like St James’ Park, Old Trafford, Anfield, and Turf Moor. I wanted to go to this game because I have never been to Bramall Lane. I wanted to experience a game there. I was looking forward to seeing Arsenal win against Sheffield United, but it ended with huge disappointment and frustration.
How did you travel to the game and how easy was it?
I travelled by car with my mum and dad. I have a wheelchair accessible car with a ramp. I use a electric wheelchair to get around.
If you drove, was it easy to find car parking and make your way to the stadium?
It was easy for us because we already had a car park space booked in the main Bramall Lane stadium car park. The car park was massive. The best thing about this stadium is everything was easily accessible and near to each other like the wheelchair accessible seating area, disabled accessible toilet and the car park. They gave us the perfect place to park because getting to the place where we sit was straight forward.
What did you think of the food and drink available inside the ground?
The hot chocolate was really nice, good quality.
What did you think of the away end and your view of the game?
The away end seating area for disabled fans who use electric wheelchairs like me is fantastic. The area is big, and loads of away fans in wheelchairs can sit there. I love sitting pitch side because you feel closer to the players on the pitch. The view was amazing, I could see everything and nobody was blocking my view. The only problem about being at the front is if it rains heavy you get soaked.
What was the atmosphere like during the match?
It was electric inside the stadium and I really enjoyed the atmosphere. Both the home and away fans were brilliant.
How friendly were the home fans out of 10?
How easy did you find it to get away from the stadium after the game?
It was really easy getting away from the stadium after the game because the traffic was light and no cars were causing huge queues, plus we got out of the car park quickly. I have been to Old Trafford before and getting out of the stadium car park was a nightmare. Just to get onto the motorway took at least two hours. At Bramall Lane we found it more straight forward.
If you stayed over, where did you stay and was it convenient for getting to the stadium?
We stayed at Holiday Inn Express hotel and the stadium was only 2 miles away, so getting to the stadium was very convenient.
Would you recommend this away day to other fans?
I would highly recommend Bramall Lane to away disabled fans from all teams including my beloved Arsenal. It might be a very old stadium but the facilities for wheelchair fans is still top class.
Is there anything else you want to tell other away fans about your day?
It was a shame that Arsenal didn’t win as we should be winning these types of games. If we had won it would’ve been a really happy away trip.
