Guests who choose not to abide by the Stadium and Ground rules will be subject to ejection from London Stadium without refund, with the prospect of arrest and potential prosecution.
A comprehensive road closure process is in place around major events in order to prevent conflict between vehicles and people. The stadium operates a managed exit/egress crowd management system during such times. The managed egress involves hold-and-release points to manage crowd flows. Guests are encouraged post event to move towards the main transport hubs at Stratford stations but with the choice remaining to enjoy post event refreshments on some events.
Generally, the egress (exit) of the crowd is complete within an hour. A normal walk to Stratford Station on a non-match day would take 20-25 minutes. Stadium staff will be on duty at all hold-and-release points to provide reassurance and guidance, using Stop and Go signs. These are in place to ensure guest safety and security. We appreciate your co-operation.
General use of drones and remote-controlled flying models is not permitted over any area of Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park. Only commercial drone activity is permitted and requires a 10-day notice period to assess and turn around applications. Applications can be made to ‘firstname.lastname@example.org' and must conform to CAA standards for UAV flights together with the Air Navigation Order 2009.
All complaints and reports of staff performance or poor fan behaviour are investigated, and appropriate actions - up to and including season ticket revocation - are undertaken.
