AVOID QUEUES - ARRIVE EARLY FOR SECURITY CHECKS - BAG POLICY

We strongly advise supporters to arrive as early as possible for every match at Wembley Stadium, connected by EE.

We recommend all fans arrive at a Wembley transport hub no later than 90 minutes before kick-off. For example, from arriving at Wembley Park station to being through all increased security checks will take in the region of 45 minutes. These increased security procedures have been in place for some time and they will not be reduced or compromised in the event of queues forming before kick-off.

Turnstiles open at 3.15pm on Saturday.

Every supporter entering the stadium will be searched before entry and this will not be compromised in the event of queues building, even if the match has started - there will be no exceptions.

Wembley encourage all supporters NOT to bring bags to the stadium.

Small bags or rucksacks which are 30 x 30cm are permitted into the stadium.

Please be aware that there are no locker facilities to store items.

Wembley's official bag policy can be found with more details HERE...

Please help the staff at Wembley get you into the stadium as quickly as possible by trying to avoid bringing bags and having your coat open ready to be searched, as well as having your tickets or access cards ready to be scanned at the turnstile.

Thanks, as always, for your understanding.

CASHLESS AT WEMBLEY
