The FA Cup Final: Enjoy it in Style at Wembley

It may be a few months away (17th May, in case you’re wondering), but if you’re a footie fan, the date will already likely be highlighted in your calendar, regardless of what team you support. As it stands, we don’t know which two teams will battle it out to walk away with the 2013/14 FA Cup trophy, but there’s no harm in getting prepared, just in case it’s your team on the pitch. And anyway, even if your team doesn’t make it to the finals, there’s no harm in heading to Wembley Stadium to watch the teams that are; the atmosphere is electric and something that you won’t be able to replicate at home watching it on the TV.

If you do decide to head to the stadium for the final, there are a few things that you should consider to ensure that you have the best time possible time in the capital.

Book your Tickets ASAP

While Wembley Stadium certainly has an impressive seat count, at 90,000, many of the FA Cup Final tickets will be snapped up by each team’s avid supporters. If you’re planning on making it to see the final live, regardless of whether your team is playing, book your tickets as soon as you can so that you don’t miss out on the football fun.

Grab your Mates

It’s not just the top managers in the country that need to ensure they’ve got the best squad on the pitch for the final of the season. It’s important that you grab your footie-mad mates and make sure that they’re on board for the visit, too. Once you’ve got a few lads on side, book a room or two at the Travelodge near Wembley Stadium so that you have somewhere to kip once the game is over. Remember that standard rooms in these hotels can hold up to 3 adults, so you don’t have to worry too much about spending a fortune on a bed for the night.

Stay Safe

England is unfortunately renowned for its football hooliganism, with many issues sprouting up across the country, caused by the small minority of fans who go out of their way to make problems for others. Stay away from the trouble and stay safe. If you don’t have an affinity for either team in the final, but are still planning to spectate, don’t bother wearing either colour shirt – just stay neutral and enjoy the game.

Enjoy the Atmosphere

Even those that don’t like football at all can’t deny that the atmosphere can be electrifying. It’s easy to get pulled into the camaraderie at a live game and to continue the frivolity way into the night. Don’t leave the fun at the turnstiles – plan an itinerary that includes an awesome night out in the city, too.

Make the most out of your stay in London and plan a weekend to remember with the lads, with the beautiful game as the primary focus. There’s nothing quite like a live game, and there’s no better place to enjoy one than at Wembley!
