London Underground issues specific event plans for all major events, which since the introduction of the alcohol ban will include the steps to be taken in dealing with alcohol use. Event plans are developed in cooperation with the British Transport Police, and other partners where appropriate. It should be noted that a drinking ban was successfully enforced during the recent F.A Cup Final at Wembley Stadium.
