Travelling to the Emirates
Due to industrial action taking place on Saturday, there will be a significant reduction in rail services. While the Stansted Express will operate, no other Greater Anglia services will. No London Overground services will be available and Great Northern and Thameslink services will be reduced.
Industrial action will not affect London Underground services, though a reduced Piccadilly line service will be in operation due to track closures between Heathrow and Acton Town in west London.
The following stations are within a 15-minute walk of the stadium:
- Arsenal (Piccadilly line)
- Finsbury Park (Victoria line, Piccadilly line, Great Northern Rail)
- Highbury & Islington (Victoria line, North London line, Great Northern Rail)
Please note that Holloway Road station will be exit-only before and after the match with pre-match eastbound trains not stopping. Drayton Park is closed on matchdays.
Supporters are strongly advised not to drive to the Emirates. The ground is situated in a mainly residential area with an extensive Event Day Parking Scheme in operation. Only car owners with residents' permits will be allowed to park on-street in the designated areas. Any cars parked illegally will be towed away.

Blue Badge Parking
Blue Badge holders can park in the surrounding roads in vacant residents’ parking bays. Supporters are advised to check to ensure the bay is not suspended due to event day parking restrictions around the stadium. Blue Badges and clocks must be clearly displayed.
There are a number of dedicated Blue Badge bays in the vicinity of the stadium. Supporters are advised that some of the bays in the area are specifically for the use of a designated Blue Badge holder. Please check the Blue Badge parking signage carefully before parking.
Concourse catering kiosks will be serving food, hot and cold drinks and alcoholic beverages.
The Emirates is a cashless stadium and accepts all major debit and credit cards.
Flags and banners
Flags must be no larger than 2m x 1m and contain nothing of an offensive, discriminatory or inflammatory nature.
Supporters are asked not to bring bags to the Emirates, but if a bag is necessary, it must be A4 size (21cm x 30cm) or smaller. All bags are searched and tagged prior to entry. There will be a barrier system in place to filter supporters into the search lanes. There are no ‘left luggage’ facilities at the Emirates. The nearest left luggage facilities are at King's Cross station.
Supporters collecting tickets can do so from the South West Collections Ticket Office above the Armoury store.
Duplicate tickets must be requested by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org and will only be provided on production of valid photo ID.
