During the London 2012 Games, Millennium Stadium has the honour of hosting the very first event of the Olympic Games, with women's Football matches starting on 25 July. It will also host the men's bronze medal match.
How will the local area be affected?
- London 2012 is aiming for 100% of ticketed spectators to travel to competition venues by public transport, walk or cycle so local train services and bus routes will be busier than usual
- Some temporary parking and traffic restrictions will be in place to provide a safe environment around venues and keep traffic moving
- Even though the Millennium Stadium is used to holding large sporting events, the venue will be operating differently during the Games. Spectator entrances and routes may be in a different location than usual and spectators will need to follow the signs and instructions from event services staff
