    Default photography allowed in Wembley Arena?

    found no information if photography (or even filming) is allowed. Has someone information about
    or found a link to it? Don't want to bring 20lbs equipment just to leave it at the security staff as
    in the AE2009 8-((

    It's on the tickets, it's not allowed to take a camera with you...

    More information on:

    So, no SLR then.

    I am going to bring my Canon G11 and check with staff at the gate.

    G11 will not get anything sharp during play but I will try and get a few when the players walk off.

    So, what does it exactly say on the ticket?

    It's understandable that SLR or any pro-like equipment is not allowed. How about a pocket-size point and shoot just for keepsake?

    This is terrible

    Do I have to check in the camera (just a pocket-size P&S)? Or that I can keep it but just not use it inside the arena?

    You could bring your pocket camera along, and trust your luck. But definitely no bazooka DSLR types, they would confiscate it.

    Even with the pocket camera, absolutely no flash is allowed.

    checked with staff yesterday, no snapping allowed, not even with a camera phone of any sort.

    I remember i saw LCW mocked by fans and spectators with cameras in their hands after the victory ceremony of AE2011.. Anyway, that's after match play. I assume you can bring inside the stadium, but just use them when the time is right
