Emirates Stadium restrictions

Find out about additional parking restrictions on Arsenal home match days.

When there is a football match or event at the Emirates Stadium additional parking controls which prioritise parking for local residents and businesses come into operation.  This means that controlled parking zones (CPZs) have extra operating hours. Any yellow lines will be enforced during the match day hours.

The controls are to prevent stadium visitors from using local parking spaces.

The extra CPZ operating hours are:


Emirates zones (H and J)  will operate 8.30am - 6.30pm

Most other zones operate 8.30am - 4.30pm

Sundays and bank holidays:

12 noon - 4.30pm

You will know when the additional controls are due to come into effect from additional notices on the parking CPZ signs.

These will normally be displayed three days before a home match or stadium held event.
