Getting to the stadium
The Johan Cruijff ArenA, located to the south-east of Amsterdam city centre, forms part of a newly developed commercial area.
We have established walking routes between the stadium and nearby transport hubs, so it's easier to follow social distancing guidelines.
❗ Remember you must use the stadium entrance indicated on your ticket. Plan your route to the stadium before you set off to avoid missing your dedicated entry time slot.
🚗 By car
There will be enough parking for private vehicles on matchdays. But we highly recommend to book your parking spot in advance. P3, P4, P6 and P2 are open on matchdays, even without booking in advance – when entering the area, you will be redirected to parking locations which are still available. Extensive roads closures will be implemented around the stadium; follow the road signs to your parking.
Let me give you a top tip:
Knowing your entrance point will save you a lot of time at the stadium and help you arrive within your allocated entry time slot. Plan your travel according to the entrance shown on your ticket. Keep in mind and you can only use the entrance that your ticket states.
The stadium is easy to reach by bike. You can leave your bike at the bike parking on the square in front of Villa Arena opposite the main entrance to the Johan Cruijff ArenA.
If you use public transport from the city centre, the metro will be the most convenient way to get to the stadium. Metro 50 and 54 will take you to the Johan Cruijff ArenA.

If you take a taxi to travel to or from the stadium, please respect the safer travel guidance for passengers. This means you need to book a taxi in advance, and you may be required to wear a mask inside the vehicle. If the distance of 1.5m can't be guaranteed, the driver will ask you whether you have any symptoms before you're allowed to get in. Find out more information on the website of the Dutch Government.

What's the best way to get to the stadium if you're a disabled fan?
Spectators can go to the stadium by car if they have an accessible parking pass for UEFA EURO 2020.
Fans who applied for accessibility tickets were able to indicate whether they needed a parking pass. Fans who requested a parking pass have been contacted by UEFA's ticketing team and were offered the opportunity to claim their complimentary parking pass on the ticket portal.
Keep in mind there are a limited number of parking permits available; even if you requested one, we could not guarantee all applications will be successful.
Additionally, there will be accessible modes of transport for disabled fans on matchdays.
