Jubilee line trains will not serve Wembley Park, Kingsbury or Neasden underground stations between 5pm-11pm.

There are a number of mainline stations in Wembley, including Wembley Central and North Wembley.

London Overground services will run from London Euston to Wembley Central. It is then a 20 minute walk to the stadium.

North Wembley is a stop further but will take just over 30 minutes to walk to the stadium.

However trains to overground stations North Wembley, Wembley Central, and Stonebridge Park will not stop between 5pm-11pm.

If you are travelling south to Wembley, trains run from major hubs including Watford and Milton Keynes Central.

Chiltern railways have announced they will not stop at Wembley Stadium station after 4pm, because of safety reasons.

Extra buses will be put on.

There will also be more National Express coaches. A shuttle service for ticket holders from Waterloo and King’s Cross stations will be available. There is a £1 booking fee and bookings can be made from midday on Tuesday 3 October. Visit the National Express Wembley shuttle service website to secure your seat.

Additional car parking has also been secured in designated stadium car parks. Only permit holders can park on surrounding roads.

Leave plenty of time to complete your journey. It is advisable to try and get to Wembley during the afternoon to mimimise your chances of disruption.

The FA have said that a full refund will be provided within 28 days if you cannot attend the match because of the strike.
