League Cup final 2016: Wembley pub split

This is a story from the FSF archive – the FSF and SD merged to become the FSA in 2019.

The 2016 League Cup final is nearly upon us – Liverpool and Manchester City meet at Wembley on Sunday, February 28th – and information around the venue’s pub split has been released.

Please note the FSF doesn’t play any role in allocating pubs to specific sets of fans, the Met Police share this information and we believe it’s important fans know the lay of the land so they can make the most of their day.

The Metropolitan Police said: “Please note that Moore Spice (Engineers Way) was originally classed as an ‘East’ pub but is now a ‘West’ pub. Therefore Moore Spice is now Liverpool.

“The old Greyhound pub near to Wembley Triangle has now reopened after being closed for a couple of years. It is now an Indian Restaurant called ‘The Arch’ which will be open for the sale of alcohol on match days.

“There are a number of outlets which serve alcohol inside the London Designer Outlet and also on Arena Square. These are generally mixed so supporters can enjoy a drink together should they so wish.”

 Keep an eye out on our social media channels, such as Twitter and Facebook, for any further updates.
