Spectator Information

Spectator Information

The London Aquatics Centre is an iconic sporting venue but it has changed a lot since the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games.

In legacy mode capacity at the London Aquatics Centre has severely reduced and spectator access will be regulated for the Arena European Masters Championships. Entry will be based on a first come, first served basis and once the agreed capacity is reached it will be a one in, one out policy.

We kindly request that once spectators have watched their family member or friend race at the London Aquatics Centre that they leave the venue to allow other families and friends to enter and watch the racing.

Please be prepared to queue to get entry into the London Aquatics Centre. The LOC committee will do everything possible to enable access but there will likely at times be queues to get into the venue.

It will not be possible to watch the racing live in Pool 2. The swimming events in both pool 1 and pool 2 will be streamed on LEN TV, so you can watch your family and friends where you have internet access. The events in Pool 2 (With the exception of the 400m and 800m Freestyle) will be streamed on to the video board in the seating area for Pool 1.

We would like to request that clubs do not attempt to set up reserved areas where they come and go. This will restrict the number of spectators who can watch racing and does not create the best experience for all.

The Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park and Westfield Shopping Centre have lots of places to explore and eat and drink and we encourage families and friends to make the most of their time in London once they have watched the racing.
