Train schedules: How to avoid gridlock in London following the Euro 2020 final
The Euro 2020 final will be a busy weekend for train services in London, so here’s how to avoid the mayhem.
On Sunday, fans will flock to Wembley Stadium to see the final match of the Euro 2020 competition. The Euro final will begin at 8 p.m., so public transportation will be busier than usual on Sunday. TfL, London’s public transport system, has published an advisory for fans wanting to utilize the system this weekend.

Transport for London (TfL) has released an update for football fans planning to travel by London Underground on Sunday.
To begin with, TfL has issued a warning that Wembley Stadium’s capacity is growing, implying that the area surrounding the stadium will be busier than in past games.
Anyone who is not attending the match at Wembley Stadium is advised to stay away from the area if at all possible.
People who aren’t watching the game are advised to reschedule their flight so that they can travel at a more peaceful time.
Both before and after the Euro final, the following services are expected to be busier than usual:
TfL warns that from 4pm to 7.30pm (northbound) is expected to be a busy time for TfL services due to the game’s start time of 8pm.
TfL routes are expected to be busy southbound from 10.15pm till the last run.
For a less crowded journey on Sunday, fans can consider using Wembley Central instead of Wembley Park.
TfL officials reminded supporters last month to be patient when using the transport system on Euro match days.
“We ask spectators to be patient as access to stations may take longer than usual following the games,” said Andy Lord, managing director of London Underground.
“Unless they are exempt, customers must cover their nose and mouth with a face covering.”
“Fans traveling to the games should check their journeys before they travel and allow ample time to get to Wembley to avoid missing kick-off, as well as make plans in case the games go to extra time and penalties,” Mr Lord added.
“A significant amount of effort has gone into ensuring that journeys may be completed securely for our employees.”Brinkwire Summary News”.
