The Club would like to remind supporters that we anticipate significant travel disruption around our Premier League match against Manchester United at Emirates Stadium on Wednesday, February 12.
The National Union of Rail, Maritime and Transport Workers (RMT) and Transport Salaried Staffs' Association (TSSA) have announced a 48-hour strike involving London Underground staff which, if it goes ahead, will affect supporters travelling to and from the match.
Supporters are advised to make their way to and from Emirates Stadium by other means of transport as any Tube services to stations near the stadium are likely to be very limited.
Supporters are encouraged to consider walking to and from Emirates Stadium from King’s Cross, St. Pancras, Liverpool Street and Euston, where they can connect with National Rail and local bus services. Please use the following link here to plan the best suggested walking route.
Supporters should be aware that, while First Capital Connect train services will be operating from Finsbury Park as normal on Wednesday, they are expected to be much busier than normal.
In addition, while London Overground services will be in operation on Wednesday, they are expected to be extremely busy, particularly after the match, and stations may need to close temporarily at times to prevent overcrowding.
All supporters coming to the match are encouraged to plan extra time for their journeys and to check www.tfl.gov.uk and follow @TfLTravelAlerts on Twitter for the latest travel information.
If the strike goes ahead it will affect Tube services from around 21.30 on Tuesday, February 11 and throughout the whole of Wednesday, February 12 and Thursday 13. Services would not return to normal until the morning of Friday, February 14.
