After spending 93 years at Highbury, Arsenal moved just down the road to the state-of-the-art Emirates Stadium in 2006.
The stadium holds over 60,000 fans, far exceeding the 38,000 capacity at Highbury, and the Gunners started life at the Emirates with club legend Dennis Bergkamp’s testimonial on 22 July 2006.
Outside the ground is an impressive photo mural, the Spirit of Highbury, recognising many iconic players and managers to have graced the club’s former home.
Arsenal Football Club have worked in partnership with AccessAble, to produce detailed pan-disability guides for Emirates Stadium.
The accessibility information in this guide aims to assist fans with disabilities and provide an additional resource to help home and away supporters plan their visit.

Depending on which part of London you’re coming through, you may approach the stadium from the A501 (Euston Road), passing Euston station and King’s Cross station. This road begins as Westway at North Kensington and runs through the city to become City Road in the east at Shoreditch.
The stadium is located just off the A1 Holloway Road, which gets extremely congested on matchdays. Roads immediately surrounding the ground are private residential areas and as such are closed on matchdays.
Islington Council have provided a list of matchday traffic restrictions and arrangements here
Emirates Stadium is located in a busy residential area, and parking is limited. Road closures are implemented and the club does not provide parking with the exception of disabled supporters and matchday hospitality guests.
Many fans park at northern suburban stations such as Cockfosters (Piccadilly Line) and Blackhorse Road (Victoria Line), then use the stations listed in the public transport section.
