Carabao Cup Final at Wembley Stadium drinking rules

In 2022, Brent Council and partners enforced a no-street-drinking zone on Olympic Way and the surrounding area for all events at Wembley Stadium.

That means that drinking alcohol in the areas is prohibited and if fans are seen drinking they will be asked to hand over their alcohol and enforcement action may be considered.

Fans that would like to drink before the match, can do so by heading for licensed bars and restaurants in the area or heading to the dedicated fan zones outside the stadium.
