The accessibility available at Liverpool's home ground has been described as 'absolutely first-class' after Anfield received a visit as part of the Guide Dogs' Four Legs Tour of the United Kingdom.

Pat Rodaway and his guide dog, Lace, were recently welcomed to Anfield and offered a VIP tour of the stadium - including access to the dressing room, the tunnel and the world-famous Kop.

The visit showed how the Reds have made the stadium as accessible as possible for all visiting fans, in an ongoing attempt to not only support the blind and visually impaired community but other disabled supporters too.

Provisions in place include: signage; accessible entrances; accessible toilets; seating; low level accessible counters; audio headset equipment; alternative programme formats; induction loops; ticketing application process.

Rodaway said: "Accessibility at Anfield is absolutely first-class and has come a long way since I was last here.

"As an avid Reds fan, it's fantastic to see that people like myself with a disability are still able to go to the stadium on matchday and enjoy watching the game just like everyone else."

The pair were also given a short presentation on LFC's commitment to supporting blind and visually impaired fans away from football with the Liverpool FC Foundation.

Blind awareness coaching programmes are run both locally and globally by the organisation, while coaching sessions are delivered at non-disabled schools on a weekly basis.

The Four Legs Tour involves a series of nationwide events to celebrate the freedom that having a guide dog brings and expose the daily barriers experienced by visually impaired people.
