Wolves will be cheered on by a sell-out away allocation when they walk out onto the Emirates Stadium pitch on Saturday afternoon to face Arsenal in the Premier League.
More than 3,000 tickets were quickly snapped up by supporters who wanted to give their backing to Nuno Espirito Santo’s side, who will be looking at going one better than they did last season when they claimed a 1-1 draw with the Gunners.
Supporters who are attending the 3pm kick-off on Saturday 2nd November and using the London Underground are being advised that there will be a planned closure of the Circle line, as well as part closures of the District and London Overground lines this weekend.
The Emirates Stadium is serviced by a wide range of rail and bus networks. The following stations are within a 15-minute walk of Emirates Stadium:
- Arsenal (Piccadilly Line)
- Finsbury Park (Victoria Line, Piccadilly Line, Great Northern Rail)
- Highbury & Islington (Victoria Line, North London Line, Great Northern Rail)
Please note that Holloway Road station will be exit-only before and after Arsenal first-team matches, with pre-match eastbound trains not stopping, while Drayton Park is closed on matchdays. Visit the Transport for London twitter account @Tfl or website https://tfl.gov.uk/ for up-to-date transport updates on Saturday.
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.
Security at Emirates Stadium is also at a high level, so supporters are advised to arrive to the ground in plenty of time. Stewards are on the perimeter of the stadium (bridges and steps) to perform a cursory check of bags. Outside the turnstiles, stewards will search by way of a full pat down body search.
The designated pub for visiting supporters is The Drayton Arms, Drayton park, N5 1NG. The Away Supporters’ Area is located in the South East corner of Emirates Stadium and the turnstiles open two hours prior to kick-off, with refreshments available.
