As we approach the start of the new season and our opening game of the Premier League campaign against Manchester City on Sunday, we wanted to share some information with supporters about matchdays at Emirates Stadium.
Turnstiles will open at 2pm ahead of the 4pm kick-off.
We strongly recommend all supporters arrive at least an hour before kick-off to avoid queues and delays entering the stadium.
Please remember to bring your ticket or membership card with you to the match. Entry to the stadium is not permitted without these.
As with last season we ask supporters to please avoid bringing bags and advise to only bring bags if essential.
For supporters wishing to bring bags, please look out for the dedicated bag searching lanes and follow the directions of our stewards.
Small bags, handbags and normal sized ruck sacks are allowed and will be searched and tagged. Please be aware, this process will take additional time so you are encouraged to arrive early to allow for these checks.
Suitcases, cabin bags or large luggage bags are NOT permitted inside the stadium under any circumstances. Luggage storage facilities are available at London King’s Cross station – see more at networkrail.co.uk/stations/kings-cross.

Food and beverage offers
Taking on board feedback from supporters, we have introduced a number of food and beverage offers to be enjoyed pre-match in the stadium. Draught pints of Carlsberg, Tetley and Somersby will be on sale for £3.50 each from turnstiles open to 45 minutes before kick-off.
A number of hot food offers will also be available – please see stadium kiosks for details.
After the final whistle, the stadium and kiosks will remain open for one hour to give supporters the opportunity to avoid the crowds exiting the stadium. Special offers will also be available – please see stadium kiosks for details.
New Arsenal Highbury store open for business
Following a 10-week modernisation project over the summer, the new Arsenal Highbury store is open for business.
Located on Drayton Park road, the first thing supporters will notice is the revamp of the store front. Situated between the staircases that lead to the Emirates Stadium – the new front provides a great photo opportunity for all fans.
The new look is in line with our other retail stores, complete with interactive changing rooms and a design that pays homage to our Highbury days.
The lay out also provides a much-improved customer experience with a wider collection of Arsenal merchandise and additional tills allowing a faster check out.
Supporters coming to the match on Sunday can also visit other retail stores - The Armoury (located at the stadium) and The Arsenal Finsbury Park (located right outside Finsbury Park station).
Dial Square redevelopment
As part of our ongoing commitment to deliver world-class hospitality experiences, and following a successful refurbishment of the Royal Oak bar three seasons ago, Dial Square on Club Level was reinvigorated this summer.
A celebration of the club’s origins, Dial Square is named after the Woolwich Arsenal Armament Factory's football team which was formed in 1886.
The transformation of Dial Square brings a new dining experience to Club Level, from freshly made pizza straight from a specialist oven to succulent rotisserie chicken. Dial Square boasts the first in-stadium open-flame pizza oven in the Premier League!
Club Level guests will be able to walk-up on matchdays without the need to pre-book.
Everyone at the club is excited about the season ahead and seeing a new chapter unfold with our new Head Coach Unai Emery.
We value your continued support and look forward to welcoming everyone back to Emirates Stadium for the 2018/19 season.
Come on The Arsenal!
