The co-operation and good humour of those who heeded the advice to arrive early to clear security was appreciated by all at the Club. Those supporters who arrived close to kick off experienced extended queues due to these additional checks with some unfortunately missing the start of the game as a result. Security WILL NOT be reduced or compromised in the event of queues forming to clear security and kick off will not be delayed as a result of this.
We should therefore like to remind fans once again that it is important to plan their journey for an earlier than normal arrival time.
In preparation for this Sunday’s fixture with Chelsea, there will be similar procedures in place. As our fixture is an early kick off at midday, to ensure you reach your seat before the action commences, we strongly advise that you arrive no later than 11am to clear security.
We also ask that you assist in the following ways:
• Please ensure all coats and jackets are open and ready to be searched
• Avoid bringing any bags with you to the stadium unless absolutely necessary. ALL bags will be searched. Please note there are no “left luggage” facilities at the stadium
• If you are experiencing extended queuing, please be patient. Our staff are doing everything possible to get you into the stadium safely and as quickly as possible.
• Be extra vigilant and alert staff or police to anything unusual
The stadium will be open 30 minutes earlier than usual at 10am to allow additional time to enter the stadium.
Supporters arriving early on Sunday will have the opportunity to meet a quartet of Spurs legends.
Mark Falco, Micky Hazard, David Howells and Graham Roberts will be in the concourses around the stadium between 10am-11am where fans will have autograph and photograph opportunities.
