Wheelchair tickets can be purchased from the staff member on duty at the accessible entrance, the red gates between the Colin Weir Stand (the older stand on Firhill Road) and the John Lambie Stand (the newer stand behind the goals).
Away Fans – The area for away wheelchair users to watch the match from is the section in front of the Colin Weir Stand (the old stand at the side of the pitch on Firhill Road). The cover here is reasonable.
For matches where the away support is in the Jackie Husband Stand there may be a limited number of wheelchair places available for away wheelchair fans on the viewing platform in The Jackie Husband Stand. This is used by Partick Thistle season ticket holders.
If spaces become available then it is possible for away wheelchair fans to reserve a space. If any away wheelchair fan would like to use the platform then they should contact Partick Thistle’s Disability Access Officer by emailing email@example.com
Away Fans – Ambulant fans have a choice of viewing the match from the Jackie Husband Stand (for those matches where the away support is in The Jackie Husband Stand) or from the enclosure in front of the Colin Weir Stand.
For those matches where the away support is located in the Colin Weir Stand, ambulant fans can enter the ground by the red gates of the accessible entrance or by the turnstiles if they are able to climb the flights of stairs inside the stand. Stewards can give assistance.
Fans can enter the Jackie Husband Stand by the turnstiles or by the doors if this is easier. Stewards can give assistance.
From 2.30 until 2.45 (Saturday matches) a free shuttle bus takes fans with mobility difficulties from the city end of the stadium at Firhill Road round to the Jackie Husband Stand. Please note that it does not run after the match.
For fans using the Colin Weir Stand or John Lambie Stands many fans park in the streets surrounding Firhill. As kick off time approaches these spaces fill up quickly so if seeking one of these spaces then the advice is to come early. Parking is at the owner’s own risk.
Some fans park on Scottish Canals land behind the Jackie Husband Stand. Parking here is free and again at the owner’s own risk but many fans park here trouble free. These spaces fill up quickly on match day. The spaces here are close to the turnstiles of the Jackie Husband Stand.
Three car park spaces for blue badge holders of the away club can be reserved in advance in the official club car park. To reserve a space fans should contact their own club in the first instance who will forward names on to Partick Thistle. Many away fans prefer to park in the streets as it is closer to the accessible entrance than the official club car park.
THE AITKEN SUITE
Situated in the Colin Weir Stand is the child friendly Aitken Suite Lounge which opens before and after Saturday matches. For midweek matches the lounge usually opens before the match but not after.
Fans should see the website for details. Home and away fans are welcome. Live matches are shown and food is also available.
The lounge has a disabled toilet.
Access to the Aitken Suite for wheelchair users is by the red gates of the accessible entrance. Inside the ground there is a ramp beside the stand which allows wheelchair access into the Aitken Suite. The stewards on duty will provide assistance.
