'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Sunday's Mass Mancunian Migration


London plays host to both Manchester City and United games this Sunday, but will the Metropolitan Police be able to cope with such as 'Mass Mancunian Migration'?

United face Tottenham in the Carling Cup final at Wembley at 3pm while City play West Ham at Upton Park in the Barclays Premier League at 12.30pm.

The national stadium is expecting over 40,000 United supporters while Upton Park can expect in the region of 2,500 Blues.

Policing London

A police spokesperson said...

"The Metropolitan Police is hugely experienced in policing football, frequently policing several matches in one day and the streams of fans that pass through and around the capital."

"An appropriate policing operation will be maintained on the day."


Travel Advice

MCFC are advising fans travelling to Upton Park this Sunday to allow extra time in getting there due to extensive work on the London Underground network.

2500 blues going to Upton Park eh? That means there will be at least 5-6000 fans travelling down from Manchester on the day, the rest of the ones going to Wemberly live locally.
