If you are wishing to drive to the stadium, please note that the RFL will not be directly administering any parking for this event. Wembley Stadium is a public transport destination and parking is limited. We recommend you only use official stadium parking and book in advance to avoid disappointment.

Brent Council operates a Controlled Parking Zone (CPZ) on event days and any vehicles illegally parked within the zone will be issued with a fine and may be towed away.
Timetables and journey planners are available for viewing on the Network Rail websites, www.networkrail.co.uk or www.nationalrail.co.uk. During the weekend of the Challenge Cup final, Network Rail will be carrying out major improvement work between Watford Junction and London Euston.
Wembley Stadium is served by three stations: Wembley Park (Metropolitan and Jubilee lines linking extensively throughout London), Wembley Central (London Over-ground and Bakerloo line) and Wembley Stadium (Chiltern Railways provide the link between London and the Midlands).
