Wembley fan zone: BoxPark to host Manchester City and Coventry fans

With street drinking in the areas surrounding Wembley Stadium not permitted, a Wembley fan zone is ideal for supporters looking to soak up the atmosphere before the two sets of semi-finals on April 20th and 21st.

Saturday will see Manchester City take on Chelsea, and fans are understandably kept separate during the pre-match buildup.

Manchester City have confirmed that the Fan Zone at BoxPark will be their base, where there will be a City Square show with great competitions hosted by Danny Jackson, as well as music from DJ Baz Birkley. Fans with a valid match ticket will be admitted to the Fan Zone from 10am before the match which kicks off at 17:15. Tickets are available to pre-book here.

Coventry will also be able to take advantage of the BoxPark facility ahead of their match with Manchester United on April 21st, with admission before 11:30 available to pre-book for £10 here.

In terms of pubs, Manchester United and Manchester City are located on the East side of the stadium with pubs such as the Blue Check and the Wembley Tavern available to them, while Chelsea and Coventry will use the West side's pubs that include the Green Man and the Arch.

Where are the Wembley fan zones?

Boxpark Wembley is on Olympic Way, and the postcode is HA9 0JT. There will be over 20 different food vendors, and three different bars to choose from.

What are the rules for the Wembley fan zones?

With Manchester City vs Chelsea due to kick off at 17:15, those supporters will have longer to enjoy the fan zones than Coventry and Manchester United fans, as their semi-final on Sunday set to start at the earlier time of 15:30.

As the alcohol will undoubtedly be flowing, BoxPark has some strict rules that must be adhered to.

Banners are not permitted to be displayed at the venue, although you are allowed to keep them in bags. Children are allowed as long as they are accompanied, but for this reason BoxPark ask that nothing is thrown in the air and fans refrain from standing on tables.

Laser devices, Knives/Weapons, Flares/Fireworks, Air Horns, Alcoholic beverages, Unsealed bottles, Illegal Substances are all banned from the venue, and there is a zero tolerance policy on racism, anti-social behaviour and inciting hatred or abuse.

Bags will be searched on entry and tables cannot be reserved in advance. The bar service will end one hour before kick-off and there will be no re-entry once you leave unless you re-join the entry queue.

Are the Wembley fan zones free?

BoxPark charges around £10 for admission, and a valid match ticket must be presented on entry. Food and drink will be charged to fans at an additional cost.
