Supporter Information: Matchday restrictions & Fan Zone information

Details for supporters around Wembley.


Ahead of Sunday’s Sky Bet Championship Play-Off Final against Southampton, please find below a list of restrictions around Wembley Stadium, as well as information about Leeds United Fan Zones and designated pubs for supporters.

Fans are reminded to only travel to Wembley Stadium if they have a match ticket.


Anyone without a ticket should not travel to the game. All tickets are strictly non-transferable and are not available to distribute to other supporters. Click here to see the full ticket guide.

Fans with tickets are advised to check they are seated in the appropriate area of the stadium. Any supporter who is identified in opposition areas will be ejected from the stadium for breaching the FA’s ground regulations and be subject to each club’s own sanctions process.

NOTE: Additional ticket checks will be in operation at points in and around the stadium prior to entry. Please have your tickets ready to show match day stewards when asked. General admission to the stadium will be available from 1pm, with fans encouraged to allow enough time for all ticket and security checks.

Stadium Security

The safety and security of fans at Wembley Stadium is of paramount importance, with robust and thorough security measures in place before, during and after each event.

Multiple ticket checks and security searches will be in place on the day, including on the perimeter of the stadium and near the turnstiles, so fans are encouraged to arrive at the stadium 60-90 minutes before kick-off to allow enough time to assist with the security protocols.

Anyone attempting to tailgate or gain illicit access to the stadium will be apprehended and reported to the Police.

All events at Wembley Stadium have a strong Police presence, and search dogs with handlers will also be patrolling around the stadium to identify and apprehend anyone with illegal or prohibited items, including pyrotechnics and banned substances.

Offensive Chanting

Wembley Stadium has a zero-tolerance policy on any form of anti-social, offensive and discriminatory conduct, and anyone found guilty of this behaviour will be ejected from the stadium and reported to the authorities.

Offensive tragedy-related chanting, gesturing and displaying of abusive messages is unacceptable and will not be tolerated. People who are found to have committed offences face stadium bans and potential criminal prosecution.

No-street-drinking zone

Brent Council have enforced a no-street-drinking zone on Olympic Way and the surrounding area for ALL events at Wembley Stadium.

This is part of the current Public Space Order Protection in place around the stadium on event days. More information on the order can be found here.

Fans drinking on Olympic Way and the surrounding streets ahead of the match will be asked to hand over their alcohol and enforcement action may be considered.

Supporters wanting alcohol before the game should head for the licensed bars or restaurants in the area or make their way to the dedicated fan zones outside the stadium.

Fan Zone

Leeds United’s dedicated Fan Zone is located at BOXPARK, located on Olympic Way. Doors open from 10am, with supporters welcome to attend until 11pm after the full-time whistle. Pre-match build up will include DJs, live music and special guests.

Please note that supporters wishing to enter will have to produce a valid match ticket upon arrival, with the area restricted to a limited capacity. Those under the age of 18 must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian over the age of 25.

More information about BOXPARK, include ticketing and policies can be found here.

Other designated pubs

As well as the BOXPARK Fan Zone, a list of designated pubs can be found below on this link, here.


The use of pyrotechnics, flares and smoke devices inside or outside Wembley Stadium is illegal and prohibited. Anyone caught carrying or using pyrotechnical equipment inside the stadium will be immediately ejected from the stadium, banned from future events and dealt with by police. Those caught using pyrotechnic equipment anywhere outside of the stadium will be in breach of the PSPO order and face enforcement action. More information can be found here.

Restricted bag policy

Wembley Stadium operates a restricted bag policy. Each person can only bring one small bag into the stadium, and it must not be bigger than A4 size:

Height – 297mm (11.7 inches) - Width – 210mm (8.27 inches) - Depth – 210mm (8.27 inches)

Please note, this means the overall bag size – bags that are half-full and folded over to reduce their size will not be accepted. Anyone carrying bags that do not meet the criteria above will not be allowed into the stadium. A full list of prohibited items can be found here.

Persistent standing

Persistent standing during a match at Wembley Stadium is strictly forbidden (unless with a ticket for the safe standing area) and may result in ejection from the ground. Persistent standing not only compromises crowd safety, but also affects the matchday experience of fellow spectators, especially children and elderly people.

Anti-social and discriminatory behaviour

Wembley Stadium operates a zero-tolerance policy on any form of anti-social and discriminatory behaviour. If you witness any anti-social or discriminatory behaviour on the day, text HELP to 66566 or contact your nearest steward.
