Emirates Stadium - Arsenal FC

Home > Sports Venues > Emirates Stadium - Arsenal FC

The Emirates Stadium, often known simply as the Emirates, is a football stadium located in Holloway in the London Borough of Islington and is the home of Arsenal Football Club. The stadium opened in July 2006 and has an all seated capacity of 60,355, making it the second largest club stadium in England behind Manchester United's Old Trafford, and the third largest stadium of any kind in London, after Wembley and Twickenham.

Getting There
Getting to Emirates Stadium is simple. London's comprehensive public transport network will take you within a few minutes walk of the ground and clearly located signs will help pedestrians find their way from stations or bus stops. The stadium has a colour coding system to signify different areas.

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.

Supporters are strongly advised not to drive to Emirates Stadium. The ground is situated in a mainly residential area with an extensive Event Day Parking Scheme in operation. 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.
