Southampton Wembley pubs: Full details for fans ahead of the Play-Off Final

Southampton fans have a trip to Wembley to look forward on Sunday, 26 May with the club set to face Leeds in the Championship Play-Off final. Southampton tickets for the final are already sold out and with over 35,000 Saints heading to the capital on Sunday, plenty of pre-match beer is expected to be consumed.

If you are one of those fans, then here is everything you need to know about Southampton Wembley pubs for the play-off final.

Southampton Wembley pubs: Where can Southampton fans drink pre-match?

Brent Council are enforcing a No Street Drinking Zone on Olympic Way and the surrounding areas, so the Southampton Wembley pubs and official fan zones are the only places to enjoy an alcoholic drink.

Southampton have been allocated the west side of the stadium which should go down well with the Saints faithful. This is typically the preferred side for visiting fans at Wembley as there are more pub options and the ‘best' pub option – the Green Man.

The Green Man is arguably the most-well known pub in the area due to its size and location. It is around 0.5 miles west of the stadium and has a large capacity. Despite that, it will hit its capacity at some point so arrive early to avoid disappointment.

The full list of pubs available on the west side of Wembley is as follows:

  • The Green Man, Dagmar Avenue HA9 8DF
  • Crystals (Sports Bar & Aqua Lounge) 1 Popin Building, Southway, HA9 0HB
  • The Arch, 324 Harrow Rd, Wembley , HA9 6LL
  • Station 31, 299-303 Harrow Rd, Wembley, HA9 6BD
  • The Liquor Station, 397A High Rd, Wembley, HA9 6AA
  • JJ Moons, 397 High Rd, Wembley, HA9 6AA
  • La Regina, St George's Hotel, 43-51 Wembley Hill Rd, Wembley, HA9 8AU
  • Black Sheep, 2 Olympic Way, Wembley Park, HA9 0GU
  • Sixty Six Bar & Grill, 3 South Way, Wembley, HA9 0JU
  • The Corner House, 313 Harrow Road, HA9 6BA
  • White Horse, 4 Wembley Park Blvd, Wembley Park, Wembley HA9 0HP

Alternatives to Southampton Wembley pubs

Both clubs are being given an outdoor fan zone before the match on Sunday, which could prove to be a good option for a pre-match beer if the weather is good.

Southampton have been given the west fanzine which will open at 11am and close 30 minutes before kick-off. Food and drink will be served up until an hour before kick-off, while a DJ will keep fans entertained with music throughout.

To get into the fan zone, you will need to show a valid match ticket and your bag will be searched if you bring one.

Other pubs around Wembley for Southampton fans

Southampton fans may elect to drink elsewhere before the Play-Off final to avoid the rush around Wembley. There are plenty of areas on neighbouring tube and train stations with pubs for football fans which make this a perfectly viable option.

One popular destination is Baker Street, which is two stops away from Wembley Park on the Metropolitan Line. There is Wetherspoons just out of the station for fans arriving in the morning while other popular pubs in the local area include The Volunteer and The Royal Oak.

Inside the stadium

Wembley Stadium doesn't accept cash so make sure you bring your bank card with you if you want to purchase any food and/or drink once you are inside.

Supporters with tickets in the lower tier will be able to take advantage of the new frictionless Tap Bar on level one which gives fans the opportunity to pick up refreshments in a very efficient way.  Fans will just be asked to tap their card on entry, pick up what they have ordered and then walk off with the goods.
