Away Supporters

Away supporters are housed in the lower tier of the South East corner. Saints' full allocation of tickets for the game has sold out.

Getting There By Car

Leave the M1 at Junction 2 and onto the A1, following the signs for City (Central London). Keep going on the A1 for around six miles, until you see Holloway Road Tube Station on your right. Take the next left at the traffic lights into Hornsey Road and the stadium is about a quarter of a mile further down this road.

Car Parking

There is little parking at the stadium itself or in nearby streets. An extensive residents only parking scheme operates around the stadium on matchdays. Parking further out at a tube station such as Cockfosters may be best, and then getting the tube to the ground.

The sat nav postcode for the Emirates is N5 1BU.

Getting There By Train

The nearest London Underground tube station to Emirates Stadium is Holloway Road on the Piccadilly Line. This is closed on a matchday, so the best bet for Saints fans is to jump off at Arsenal tube station. It is only a few minutes walk from here to the stadium. On exiting the station, turn right and follow Drayton Park around to the left. Take one of the large bridges over the railway line to the stadium.

Other tube stations in walking distance to the stadium are Finsbury Park on the Piccadilly Line and Highbury & Islington on the Victoria Line.

Food & Drink

A programme at Arsenal costs £3.50, with a pie priced at £3.60 and a cup of tea priced at £2.20.
