Ahead of Sunday's 2019 Emirates Cup, we want to ensure a smooth process for our supporters entering the stadium.
We strongly recommend all fans get to Emirates Stadium by 11.30am, one hour before kick-off of the first fixture, to allow time for additional security checks including searches outside and at the turnstiles.
To help with your planning, please find below some important information:
Arsenal (Piccadilly Line) is the nearest tube station, around three minutes’ walk from the ground. Finsbury Park (Victoria, Piccadilly Lines and Great Northern rail) and Highbury & Islington (Victoria Line, North London Line and Great Northern rail) stations are around a 10-minute walk - these should be slightly less crowded.
King's Cross is the main connecting station for national rail and many underground lines. From here you can travel to the ground via the Piccadilly Line (to Arsenal) or the Victoria Line (to Highbury & Islington). Alternatively, a short overground rail journey of one stop will take you to Finsbury Park station.
Security and bags
Emirates Stadium will open approximately 1 hour before kick-off; customers are strongly recommended to arrive early to allow for security checks, including searches outside and at the turnstiles. Please do not bring any bags unless necessary. If you do need to bring a bag, please look out for the dedicated bag search lanes. Only bags no larger than 16.5'' x 12'' x 6'' may be brought into the stadium. Please note that pushchairs are not permitted. Please check the list of prohibited items before you travel, see attached and ensure you plan your journey accordingly to avoid queues ahead of kick-off.
Suitcases, cabin bags are large luggage bags are NOT permitted inside the stadium and supporters are asked to not bring smaller bags to the match unless absolutely necessary. Bag storage is available at Kings Cross station.
