As you may be aware the SDSA have four season tickets that we offer to disabled supporters who do not have their own season tickets or who cannot afford to buy match day tickets. We offer these on a match by match basis.
Under that criteria we were able to purchase tickets for the EFL Cup final at Wembley on the 26th of February 2017.
We had to wait until the 5th of February to purchase these Wembley Tickets as it was not until then that we were eligible. We have managed to buy two wheelchair tickets and two ambulant disabled tickets, each having a complementary enabler ticket to go with them.
We would offer these to supporters that had applied to use one of our four season tickets this season and who did not already have a ticket for Wembley. Apply to use our season ticket
On Wednesday 15th February, before our monthly committee meeting, 2 wheelchair supporters and 2 ambulant supporters were drawn out of a hat by an independent person, not connected with the SDSA.

Jack Sennatt + his dad
