Capacity at bet365 Stadium set to rise to 30,000 from 2017/18 with more disabled bays to be built

Work will begin at Stoke City next week that will increase the capacity at the bet365 Stadium and will provide greater accessibility to their disabled supporters.

The southeast corner of the stadium will be filled in to add 1,800 seats, taking the capacity to over 30,000.

Stoke are also installing additional disabled bays to comply with the Accessible Stadia Guide recommendations, as well as improving mid-terrace disabled bays which will be fitted with riser platforms and wheelchair lifts.

The redevelopment work is planned to be complete for the start of the 2017/18 season.

“We have traditionally had a good atmosphere and [the redevelopment] will improve it even more,” Richard Smith, managing director of Stoke City Property, said.
