MEMPHIS (AP) – The Justice Department says the city of Memphis has agreed to improve physical accessibility for people with disabilities at Liberty Bowl Memorial Stadium

The agreement announced Monday calls for the city to install 282 wheelchair spaces and an equal number of companion seats around the stadium. The spaces will be dispersed in a way that will provide people in wheelchairs with lines of sight over standing spectators that are comparable to those offered to individuals without disabilities.

Memphis also must ensure Americans with Disabilities Act compliance for concession stands, gates, elevators, suites and press boxes, ramps and restrooms.

Liberty Bowl Memorial Stadium is the home of the Memphis Tigers college football team and plays host to the AutoZone Liberty Bowl and the Southern Heritage Classic football games.
