With time short and both sets of supporters familiar with Wembley Stadium, reps from fan groups, the police, Wembley National Stadium Limited and the clubs opted not to meet but instead to share the messages through the channels available.
“If there is anything that supporters consider suspicious then please report it to either police or stewards. There is never a bad call and if something is highlighted to us in good faith then you will never be criticised.”
We’ve also been advised that supporters found in possession of flares or smoke devices will be arrested and banning orders will be applied for. Some detail on the law around flares and smoke bombs from the Football Supporters’ Federation can be found here.
Information on the pub split around Wembley can be found here.
Tickets bought from touts are highly likely to be forgeries. Touting activity can be reported to the police, who will deal with it accordingly.
We’ve not been told of any planned works on the rail network.
We’ve also been asked to pass on the following message. “Wembley Stadium, The Metropolitan Police and British Transport Police hope that all supporters have a brilliant and trouble free day. If there are any issues that will affect supporters travelling to Wembley on either Saturday or Sunday we will make every effort to get information to them as soon as possible through our respective Twitter accounts. These are @BTP and @WembleyStadium. Please follow @MPSFOOTBALLUNIT for any updates throughout the weekend.”
