The schedules show (see Appendix 2018/0803) the cost per team of policing less any charges to the clubs for 2016/17 and 2017/18 to date.

The costs of other events at Wembley were £78,915 in 2016, and £157,666 in 2017. At the London Stadium the costs were£11,687, (2016) and £1,441,537 (2017).  The latter included the multi-day World Parathletic Championships and World Athletic Championships.
