GETTING TO THE EMIRATES STADIUM
Fans are encouraged not to drive to the stadium. Parking is in short supply around the Emirates and only available to local residents.
The Emirates Stadium is well served by public transport links. Arsenal – on the Piccadilly Line – is the closest underground station to the ground, just three minutes walk away. Finsbury Park (served by the Victoria, Piccadilly lines and Great Northern rail) is approximately ten minutes away on foot, as is Highbury and Islington (Victoria Line, North London line and Great Northern rail). Fulham fans should be advised that a queuing system will be in operation at these stations both before and after the game to manage the crowds – so patience may well be necessary.
Official club coaches will leave Craven Cottage and Motspur Park at 1.45pm. Tickets for season ticket holders and members are priced at £17 for adults and £10 for juniors or senior citizens. They will cost £22 for adults and £17 for juniors for non-season ticket holders or members.
Two of the usual haunts for away fans at Arsenal (The Drayton Park and The Courage) are currently closed. This leaves The Twelve Pins (263 Seven Sisters Rd, Finsbury Park, N4 2DE), previously known as The Finsbury Park Tavern and within walking distance of Finsbury Park station, which has always welcomed home and away fans without trouble. Opposite the Twelve Pins is the BlackStock (284 Seven Sisters Rd, Finsbury Park, N4 2DE), whilst The Coronet (338-346 Holloway Rd, N7 6NJ) is the nearest Wetherspoons option, located further along the Holloway Road and about ten minutes’ walk from the stadium. Alcohol is available inside the Emirates, but like the food offer at Arsenal, is pretty expensive – starting from £6 a bottle.
