IMPORTANT ARRANGEMENTS FOR MATCHDAY COACH TRAVEL TO EMIRATES STADIUM
Arsenal Football Club would like to set out their arrangements for supporter coach travel to Emirates Stadium.
To ensure the operation of Emirates Stadium runs as smoothly as possible for spectators, local residents and businesses, Arsenal Football Club has introduced a booking procedure for supporter coach travel. If you do not follow the simple three step procedure your coach will not be able to park at Emirates Stadium.
Your Club / Coach Company must register with Arsenal Football Club if they intend to travel to Emirates Stadium by coach, by completing the Coach Booking Form (available upon request from Gillian Bragg) 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).
When the registration form has been received Arsenal Football Club will e-mail each Club a coach identification permit along with directions on how to get to Emirates Stadium.
Coaches must display their identification permit in the front windscreen and arrive between 4 and 2 hours before the start of the match.
All access routes to the Queensland Road coach parking site will be closed by the Metropolitan Police Service 2 hours before the start of a match. Late arriving coaches will not be permitted into the area and will not be allocated a parking space.
