Wembley pub split: Community Shield

Pubs in the area of Wembley Stadium will be designated to specific sets of supporters for the Community Shield on Sunday 10th August. Check out the information below to avoid any pub-based confusion. Manchester City have been allocated pubs on the east side of the stadium, while Arsenal have been given pubs on the west side of the stadium. 

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

  • We have been advised that no political/protest t-shirts or flags (specifically free Gaza/Palestine) will be allowed in the stadium.
  • Fans are allowed to take small bottles of water in with them.
  • Police have asked fans to be considerate with regards to standing. While stewards will be instructed to be pragmatic, please consider fellow fans with regards to persistent standing during the match.
