Colleagues interested in the accessibility of sports stadiums are asking three questions in anticipation of future FIFA World Cup Games. If you have the answers please leave them as comments or send them as an email:
- IFA has established a series of regulations for World Cup stadiums and facilities around them, and we are trying to find any paper or article analyzing these regulations from an accessibility perspective. Have you written or do you know of any study or paper about accessibility and FIFA stadium facilities regulations?
- Do you direct experience with FIFA in the area of disability awareness?
- Do you have any information about the intersection between the ADA and FIFA regulations when the Soccer World Cup was in the US?
Below is a link to a FIFA document on stadium design, the US Access Board document on stadium accessibility, and a proposal from Whirlwind Wheelchairs on a unique stadium seating system:
