We are probs gonna get there before 11 I'd imagine to try and suss out the wristband situation etc. Also want to grab some food nearby.

Will be an early start driving from Wales on a Friday morning ffs
I'll take a train down south on Thursday evening. Will probably check the merch stand outside (if there is one) as soon as it opens on Friday and then just hang around.

If its like the O2 well get there early, get numbers for the queue then send one of us to go check in - leaving the other to fend for themselves

I do wonder where we're going to queue before 3pm as the "stadium island" doesn't open until then

for gigs/non football events the tickets are checked on the bridges and once you're past that then you're in (wristbands for the standing are given at that point).

I've got seated tickets for London on the 23rd.. We're staying in a hotel on Romford Road..

A while back (when the tickets were first announced) someone posted an image of an alternative route out of the stadium to avoid the tube station but I can't find it now..

Does anyone have any ideas where it is or what i'll need to do to get the wife and daughter to the hotel?

If there are taxis, i'll probably opt for one of those, but having never been to the venue i've no idea how it's all laid out..

Additionally.. With me bringing my Daughter.. i wasn't planning on getting there as soon as the gates open.. We've got seats so it shouldn't be a problem to get there for like 5pm i'm guessing?

I assume the Foo's won't actually be on until atleast 7..

I'll be arriving at 3pm on friday, hoping thats early enough to get pit bands. Its all I could swing with work
Sat I'll be there from 45 mins after I wake up which likely will be early!

Much like you we have a young(ish) child and I am also trying to work out all options for what to do about getting back to our hotel - and seeing which one to put into operation depending on prevailing conditions. Including walking 50 minutes if that feels less hassle ridden than tube/rail/queues. Or walking to the next Central Line station? But not at all expecting child to be up to that after a mind and body blowing day. They may be high on the whole thing though. Or practically asleep!

I'm assuming more like 8 for Foos? And also weighing up when to arrive given we obviously have seats. Might depend on the weather, and how much they are entertained by the Olympic Park.

Londonista information gratefully accepted.

I've seen a tweet from Tixtu (who do the tickets for the Stadium) and they've said that "the current plan is for tickets to be allowed through any main (public) entrance" so sounds like we won't have to come in at the back. Fingers crossed!

No problem! Fingers crossed eh. Don't think I'm fit enough to sprint across an Olympic stadium!

It brings you to Stratford High Road, turn left onto it and it leads into Broadway then Romford Road.

Said I'd re-post it

For those that have been to the stadium before.. Is it a waste of time taking a bag with drinks in? (I'm talking bottles of water)... I've just read some reviews saying it was all taken off people for the Stones concert recently.
