Emirates Stadium Tickets - Arsenal Tickets

Emirates Stadium - Opening: 2006

The Emirates Stadium replaced Arsenal’s previous home, Highbury, which had become too small and lacked the possiblities for expansion being hemmed in by housing.

First plans for the construction of a new stadium were made in the late 1990s.

A site was chosen just a few hundred yards away from Highbury, and, after a few delays, construction of the stadium started in 2004. The total project budget amounted to £390 million.

The Emirates Stadium officially opened on the 23rd of July 2006. The first match was a testimonial match for Dennis Bergkamp featuring an Arsenal and Ajax side.

Due to the competition of nearby Wembley Stadium, the Emirates Stadium has never hosted the English national team, however the Brazilian national team has regularly staged friendlies at the stadium.

Directions

The Emirates Stadium is located in the Islington area, slightly north of the centre of London and just over 2 miles north from Kings Cross St Pancras railway station. There are plenty of bars and nightlife in the vicinity of the stadium.

The stadium is best reached by Metro.  The nearest tube station is Arsenal, on the Piccadilly line. Alternatives are stations Finsbury Park (Victoria and Piccadilly line) and Highbury & Islington (Victoria line and North London Line). From both stations it is a 10-minute walk to the stadium. Holloway Road and Drayton Park stations will be closed pre-match and are exit-only after the match.

Finsbury Park and Highbury & Islington station can also be reached by train. It is a 5-minute journey coming from either Kings Cross or Moorgate station.

Supporters are not advised to arrive by car on matchdays, and there is few parking available around the Emirates Stadium on non-matchdays.

Address: Emirates Stadium, London N5 1BU
