Pub split: FA Cup semi-final 2016

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

It’s almost FA Cup semi-final weekend and hundreds of thousands of fans will descend on Wembley, with many looking for a quick pint or two along the way. Ahead of every major fixture local pubs are “split” and it’s important fans know which are “theirs”. The pubs may refuse entry to the “wrong” fans.

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.
