Emirates Stadium (capacity 60,432)
With a capacity of over 60,000, Arsenal’s Emirates Stadium is the third largest in the country behind Wembley and Old Trafford. After relocating from Highbury, this has been home to Arsenal since 2006, and is one of the most impressive looking stadiums in the Premier League.
The stadium is the only four tiered stadium in the UK, with the lower tiers said to be much more atmospheric than the upper tiers. The Orange Quadrant in particular is cited as the loudest part of the stadium. Two huge video screens situated in the South East and North West corners complete the Emirates.
Away fans visiting the Emirates Stadium are located in the lower tier of the South East corner, with a typical allocation of 3,000.
Parking is limited around the Emirates, with an extensive residents only parking scheme in operation on matchdays. A better option may be to park a little further out near a tube station, Cockfosters for example, and then get the tube to the Emirates.
|Car Park||Sat Nav||Cost||Distance to Ground||Description|
|Cockfosters Underground Station||EN4 0DZ||£2||13.9km||Parking at Cockfosters Underground Station and getting a tube to the Emirates (Arsenal Station) is a popular choice for away fans, due to the limited parking around the stadium itself.|
If you are travelling by train, then go to Kings Cross where you will have a number of different options for your onward journey to the Emirates Stadium.
If you are taking the London Underground, then it’s worthwhile knowing that Holloway Road, which is the nearest London Underground station to the Emirates Stadium, is closed on matchdays. However, you can still take the Piccadilly line and get off at Arsenal tube station, which is only a few minutes walk to the stadium. When you exit the station, take a right and follow Drayton Park Road around to the left. You can then walk over one of the large bridges that run over the railway line to the stadium. Finsbury Park (Piccadilly line) and Highbury & Islington (Victoria Line) are another two options which are within walking distance of the stadium.
The other option is to take an over ground train from London Kings Cross to Finsbury Park Railway Station, as it is only a 10 to 15 minute walk to the Emirates Stadium from there.
