England v Sweden

Friday 5 April

20.00 KO

The Lionesses kick-off their EURO 2025 qualifying campaign with a home fixture at Wembley Stadium connected by EE against Sweden.

We want all fans travelling to the game to have the best experience possible. Below is some key information, which will ensure Wembley is a safe environment for all visitors on the day.

Stadium access

General admission to the stadium will be available from 18.00. Doors for hospitality will open one hour earlier at 17.00

Make sure you arrive at the stadium in good time to assist with security protocols.

Please refer to your ticket for your turnstile colour zone. The quickest route to your turnstile entry point is by following the signage for the colour zone. Please ensure you enter via the correct turnstile.

An additional ticket check operation will be in place at the bottom of Olympic steps - please have your tickets ready, as you may be asked to show our match day stewards.

Fans with tickets are advised to check they are seated in the appropriate area of the stadium. Any supporter who is identified in opposition areas will be ejected from the stadium for breaching the FA’s ground regulations and be subject to each club’s own sanctions process.

Travel Advice

Rail / London Underground

National rail services will be severely disrupted due to industrial strike action taking place on 5 April.

All regional timetables will be severely impacted. Supporters travelling to Wembley Stadium from the northwest of England are advised to seek alternative transport modes for matchday travel.

In addition, there will be a full closure of Wembley Stadium Station. Chiltern Railway services will still be in operation, however they will not stop at Wembley Stadium station. Spectators are encouraged to use Wembley Central and Wembley Park stations for matchday travel to the stadium.

All TfL services will be operating as normal with Wembley Central station (Bakerloo Line) and Wembley Park station (Jubilee & Metropolitan Line) providing regular services to the stadium.

Supporters are encouraged to plan their journeys in advance to avoid disappointment or delay. All those travelling by rail should plan to arrive at Wembley stations no later than one hour prior to kick-off, to allow sufficient time to walk to and enter the stadium.

Please check the National Rail and TfL Status Updates websites to look out for any service alteration details and for real-time journey updates.

Post-match, fans are asked to leave the ground promptly and avoid opting for the last train of the day. Please allow for longer journey times from Wembley Stadium due to crowd safety controls for safe station access.

By Coach

Due to industrial rail strike action please consider using Coach Travel.

National Express is the official coach partner to Wembley Stadium. National Express drop off at the stadium from over 50 locations around the UK making it the easiest and most convenient way to travel to Wembley.

Event day parking at Wembley Stadium is limited and must be booked in advance via the Wembley Official Parking website. Please book early to avoid disappointment. Any vehicles which do not pre-book will not be granted access to the stadium car parks. Customers are advised to park via the official car parks only.

No-street-drinking zone

Brent Council have enforced a no-street-drinking zone on Olympic Way and the surrounding area for ALL events at Wembley Stadium.

This is part of the current Public Space Order Protection in place around the stadium on event days. More information on the order can be found here.

Fans drinking on Olympic Way and the surrounding streets ahead of the Bristol Street Motors Final will be asked to hand over their alcohol and enforcement action may be considered.

Supporters wanting alcohol before the game should head for the licensed bars or restaurants in the area or make their way to the dedicated fan zones outside the stadium.

Fan Zone

The Fan Zone is an area located on the concourse of the stadium where supporters have the chance to join fellow fans to enjoy a drink, including alcohol, food and a DJ. It is the ideal place to soak up the pre-match party atmosphere

The fan zones will be open from 16.00 and stop serving alcohol one hour before kick-off at 19.00

Supporters will need to present a valid stadium ticket to enter the area which has a limited capacity. The stadium’s bag policy (see below) also applies to anyone visiting the fan zone.

Stadium Security

We encourage fans to arrive at the stadium 60-90 minutes before kick off to allow enough time to assist with the security protocols. Anyone attempting to tailgate or gain illicit access to the stadium will be apprehended and reported to the Police.

All events at Wembley Stadium have a strong Police presence, and search dogs with handlers will also be patrolling around the stadium to identify and apprehend anyone with illegal or prohibited items, including pyrotechnics and banned substances.

Offensive Chanting

Wembley Stadium has a zero-tolerance policy on any form of anti-social, offensive and discriminatory conduct, and anyone found guilty of this behaviour will be ejected from the stadium and reported to the authorities. 

Offensive tragedy-related chanting, gesturing and displaying of abusive messages is unacceptable and will not be tolerated. People who are found to have committed offences face stadium bans and potential criminal prosecution.


The use of pyrotechnics, flares and smoke devices inside or outside Wembley Stadium is illegal and prohibited. Anyone caught carrying or using pyrotechnical equipment inside the stadium will be immediately ejected from the stadium, banned from future events and dealt with by police. Those caught using pyrotechnic equipment anywhere outside of the stadium will be in breach of the PSPO order and face enforcement action. More information here.

Disabled supporters

Wembley Stadium is a welcoming and inclusive venue for all guests with access requirements. There are 310 places for wheelchair users, each with a personal assistant/companion seat. The stadium also provides a range of services for guests with specialist access requirements including a shuttle service from Wembley Park Station. More information can be found here.

Restricted bag policy

Wembley Stadium operates a restricted bag policy. Each person can only bring one small bag into the stadium, and it must not be bigger than A4 size:

Height – 297mm (11.7 inches) - Width – 210mm (8.27 inches) - Depth – 210mm (8.27 inches)

Please note, this means the overall bag size – bags that are half-full and folded over to reduce their size will not be accepted. Anyone carrying bags that do not meet the criteria above will not be allowed into the stadium. A full list of prohibited items can be found here.

Persistent standing

Persistent standing during a match at Wembley Stadium is strictly forbidden (unless with a ticket for the safe standing area) and may result in ejection from the ground. Persistent standing not only compromises crowd safety, but also affects the matchday experience of fellow spectators, especially children and elderly people.

Anti-social and discriminatory behaviour

Wembley Stadium operates a zero-tolerance policy on any form of anti-social and discriminatory behaviour. If you witness any anti-social or discriminatory behaviour on the day, text HELP to 66566 or contact your nearest steward.

Food and Drink

Wembley Stadium offers an extensive range of food and drink options inside the stadium – more information is available here.

New for 2024 - On level one the stadium has introduced a new frictionless Tap Bar, allowing guests to access refreshments quicker and more conveniently.

The bar deploys the latest technology to enable customers to simply tap their card on entry, pick up what they need and then walk out – without the need to queue or pay at a dedicated paypoint.
