Fans often park at suburban station car parks such as Blackhorse (London Overground/Victoria Line), and use rail services to make their way to the stadium.

Finsbury Park (Victoria/Piccadilly Lines and Overground rail) and Highbury & Islington (Victoria Line, North London Line, Overground rail) stations are approximately 10 minutes’ walk from Emirates Stadium.

To get to the stadium from King’s Cross, connect with the Piccadilly Line to Arsenal Station or the Victoria Line to Highbury & Islington.

Most away fans gather along Drayton Park for a pre-match pint in pubs near the south-east corner of Emirates Stadium. The Emirates has a colour-coding system for different areas – visiting fans should head for the green quadrant.
From Drayton Park you can access the away turnstiles via the South Pedestrian Bridge. Arsenal’s own version of the Hollywood sign stands proudly at the street entrance to the bridge, making it very easy to spot.
There is plenty of space outside the stadium, with stewards on hand to answer any questions, or to help with directions.

Everton Football Club does not condone the use of pyrotechnics whatsoever those found using them either home or away will be subject of action by the Club and the Police. Being convicted of using them could also result in a jail sentence that is how seriously the matter is being treated by courts across the country. As a Club we would also impose an indefinite ban on anyone caught using pyrotechnics. Apart from the risk of a ban or conviction the devices have a serious effect on others, particularly those with breathing difficulties and the disabled in wheelchairs who cannot easily get away from the smoke.
During the season 2015/16, we have noticed an increase of persistent group “bouncing”, culminating in beer being thrown in the air. This has happened on both home and away concourses and would stress has only involved a very small minority of fans.
This has resulted in both the Club and the Police receiving complaints from supporters who have become soaked in beer. As we are sure you will agree this is anti-social behaviour and people should not have to put up with this. As a consequence, both the Club, Merseyside Police and supporter’s groups have discussed how this should be addressed.
Firstly, both the Club and the Police want to make it clear that we want ALL our supporters to enjoy their day and we understand that this may include singing and an element of “bouncing” as a group.
However, a decision has been made that should home or away fans participate in the throwing of alcohol in any area of the stadium, they will be dealt with by Match Day Stewards with the full support of Merseyside Police Officers. This could culminate with an ejection from the ground or potentially an arrest, dependent on the specific circumstances. This season, you will see more stewards and Police Officers on the concourse, who will provide early advice should a situation look like it is getting out of control.
Please continue to enjoy the match but we ask that you also consider other supporters and how they will be affected by your behavior and we ask for your support in this.

If you do not follow the simple three step procedure your coach will not be able to park at Emirates Stadium.
Step One Your Club / Coach Company must register with Arsenal Football Club if they intend to travel to Emirates Stadium by coach, by completing the attached form at least 7 days before a match. This simple registration form asks for coach and travel information (e.g. departure time, number of passengers, on-coach contact).

Only car owners with resident's permits will be allowed to park on-street in the designated areas and any cars parked illegally will be towed away.
Matchday traffic information There are changes to the traffic plans on days when matches are played. This is so the Metropolitan Police Service can safely manage travel to and from the stadium and reduce inconvenience, as far as possible, to people living nearby.
BY BICYCLE Cycling is easier than you think. It is a quick and healthy way to make your journey and saves you a lot of money. Why not avoid the crowds and queues by cycling to the stadium?
Emirates Stadium is fully accessible by bicycle. There are a number of cycle routes through the area, and as Islington is a small, relatively flat borough, it’s a great way of getting to the stadium. Routes across London are mapped out on Transport for London's London Cycle Guides, a collection of 19 maps covering the whole of London. You can obtain a cycle guide by logging-on to: www.tfl.gov.uk/cycles.
Once you arrive at Emirates Stadium there is secure cycling parking available close to the ‘All Arsenal’ retail store on Drayton Park. The cycle parking area is clearly signposted, but Arsenal stewards will be on hand to assist. Other cycle parking facilities in the area can be located by logging on to Islington Borough Council’s official website: www.islington.gov.uk/transport/cycling/cycleparking.
