"Liverpool FC have been allocated the EAST side of the stadium, therefore all public houses on the EAST of the Borough have been nominated for Liverpool supporters. Follow the link to see the pubs allocated to the two sets of supporters around Wembley.
Please note that there is only so many people that these premises can hold which means that they are likely to become full to capacity very quickly. There is a 'No Drink' policy for public places around the area of the stadium and this policy will be enforced by police on the day of the game especially around the Empire Way area of Wembley. It is advised that supporters drink outside the immediate area and travel in by tube nearer to the time of kick off.
Liverpool supporters can use Wembley Park tube station to access the stadium. Once they come out of the tube station they will walk along Olympic Way (formally Wembley Way) and will be directed up the left hand ramp which will take them to the East side of the stadium. Wembley Park is serviced by the Jubilee Line and the Metropolitan Line which enables supporters to travel in from central London in the south or Watford, Uxbridge, Hillingdon and Stanmore from the north.
It can be expected that there will be large numbers of supporters travelling to the stadium without tickets. Please DO NOT show your tickets in public until you reach the turnstiles. It is common that supporters walking along the concourse or surrounding roads waving tickets have them snatched from their grasp by ticketless fans. It would be virtually impossible for supporters to gain entry to the stadium after having their tickets stolen so please be aware of this.
Those supporters wishing to drive or travelling by coach to the stadium are advised to leave early to avoid queues before the game and must expect delays afterwards due to the high number of vehicles trying to leave the area at the same time.
Many supporters leave their private vehicles in surrounding Boroughs and utilise the tube system to finish their journey. Drivers MUST check the parking restrictions when they leave their vehicles as many councils now impose restrictions on match day."
