Overall the works over the weekend of Saturday 15 June and Sunday 16 June remove the District Line service between Aldgate East to Wimbledon, Richmond, Ealing Broadway, Edgware Road and Kensington (Olympia), and the Circle Line between Aldgate to Edgware Road (via Victoria).

This will need to be taken into account when planning a journey to the game.
