It’s simple to get there; all you have to do is board the red metro line and travel to the Expo 2020 Metro Station. After you get off, you can freely explore the city. After passing the Wasl Dome, turn right diagonally toward the direction of the park. Right there will be the fan zone entrance. You can tell you’re going in the correct direction when you hear football commentary and fans cheering before you really see it.
