Tips for the day

This popular venue can get incredibly busy, so keep your visit as stress-free as possible with these tips:

  • Make sure you give yourself plenty of time to get to venue, especially if you’re travelling far. Since the roads will be quite congested on match days, we’d recommend catching the train and getting there early enough to get through security and find your seats.
  • Whether you’ve arrived early or want to stretch your legs during half time, you can head to the Fan Village where you you’ll find a selection of refreshments and plenty of open space.
  • Bring a bag that’s small enough to fit under a stadium seat, or try not to bring a bag at all if possible, as searches slow down entry.
