Match Day Parking

Islington and Hackney council, in partnership with Arsenal as part of the planning agreement, has introduced match day parking controls which prioritises parking for local residents and businesses when Arsenal play at home.

How the Scheme Works
When Arsenal play matches at home, controlled parking zones (CPZs) near the Emirates Stadium have additional operating hours.

The extra operating hours are:

  • from the end of the normal CPZ operating hours to 8.30pm
  • Saturdays, Sundays and Bank Holidays – 12 noon to 4.30pm

The controls prevent visitors to Arsenal matches from using all the local parking spaces when a home game is being played.

You will know when the match day controls are due to come into effect from additional signs on the CPZ entry signs. Three day before before a match the bottom section of the signs will display the date of the match, as you can see in the image on the right.

Parking Suspensions
Some parking bays will need to be suspended around the Emirates Stadium, and we have re-designed and installed new signs which are more informative. These signs will have the date of the next match displayed at the bottom of the sign.

On the day before the match these signs will be ‘un-flipped’ to indicate the parking bay has been suspended. On the morning of the match, yellow ‘no waiting’ cones will be placed in the parking bays, again to re-affirm the bays are suspended.

Please familiarise yourself with the signs and check the dates on them for forthcoming suspensions.

Parking bays on Drayton Park – between Benwell Road and Bryantwood Road – will be suspended when the location is required for coach parking. Arsenal has estimated that this location will only need to be used a few times per season. The parking suspension will be under the same terms and conditions as above.

Where the Scheme Operates

To see a map of the whole match day parking area, in which controls operate, please see the attached pdf document. For wider parking restrictions please visit the Islington Council website or Hackney Council’s website for further details.

Match Day Parking Permits

If you have a resident or business permit within the match day area, you will not need a separate match day parking permit.

However, residents and businesses in the area who do not wish to buy a CPZ permit are entitled to apply for a match day parking permit which they can use during match day controls only.

If you have any enquiries about parking permits, please call 020 7527 1338.

By Tube and Rail

Arsenal (Piccadilly Line) is the nearest tube station, around three minutes walk from the ground. Finsbury Park (Victoria, Piccadilly Lines and Great Northern rail) and Highbury & Islington (Victoria Line, North London Line and Great Northern rail) stations are around a 10-minute walk – these should be slightly less crowded.

Posters will go up at these stations prior to most key matches to give station users advance notice of matches.

King’s Cross is the main connecting station for national rail and many underground lines. From here you can travel to the ground via the Piccadilly Line (to Arsenal) or the Victoria Line (to Highbury & Islington). Alternatively, a short overground rail journey of one stop will take you to Finsbury Park station.

Please note: Holloway Road station will be exit-only before a match and closed for up to 2 hours after the last match. Pre-match eastbound trains are non-stopping.
