Access for the disabled

Wheelchair and disabled (reserved) seating is available at the north end of McMahon Stadium, under the canopy above the Olympic Volunteer Center. Building access is via the wheelchair ramp located at the northeast corner of the stadium.

The 140 assorted positions are specifically designed to accommodate both wheelchair-bound and ambulatory-disabled patrons and afford an excellent view of the action on the field. The admission is $3 for the fan with special needs and complimentary for the attendant.

At the conclusion of each football season, the entire amount of admission fees collected throughout the year is donated to local charitable organizations. Some of the beneficiaries have included the Calgary Handi-Bus Association, Calgary Cerebral Palsy Association and the Southern Alberta Brain Injury Society.

Accessible parking

Disabled (reserved) parking is provided but is very limited at McMahon Stadium. Please have proper identification, as a disabled (reserved) parking permit is mandatory for entrance into the McMahon Stadium parking lot on game day.

Drop-off spots are also available should all of the disabled (reserved) parking be taken at the time of your arrival. All those seeking disabled (reserved) parking should enter the stadium off Crowchild Trail at the entrance immediately south of the traffic lights at 23rd Avenue NW.
