OUT THE TOUT CAMPAIGN CONTINUES

For the good of genuine supporters, the Club remains totally committed to stamping out ticket touting and our 'Out The Tout' campaign will continue more strongly than ever for the forthcoming season.

For the good of genuine supporters, the Club remains totally committed to stamping out ticket touting and our 'Out The Tout' campaign will continue more strongly than ever for the forthcoming season.

Last season we were delighted with the results of the campaign as we caught a significant number of people either touting tickets, using touted tickets or trying to gain entry to the stadium with a child’s ticket or membership (when they should have paid an adult’s price). This success was in no small part down to the co-operation of genuine fans and so once again we would urge supporters to contact the Club if you have been a victim of a tout, if you suspect someone sitting near you is touting our tickets or if you know of an adult who uses a child’s ticket to gain entry to White Hart Lane.

This season we will be stepping up our efforts to combat ticket touting including an increase in the number of spot checks. If you are involved in ticket touting, it is very likely you will be caught either outside the stadium, at the turnstile, or in your seat. We will rigorously investigate anyone we suspect of being involved in ticket touting in any way and there will now be greater penalties for those that buy touted tickets.

· Any supporter that attempts to gain entry to the stadium with a touted ticket will be turned away at the turnstile, have any Season Ticket or Membership cancelled with no refund and BANNED indefinitely from attending all future matches at White Hart Lane.

· Any supporter that is found to be in possession of a touted ticket inside the stadium will be ejected, have any Season Ticket or Membership cancelled with no refund and BANNED indefinitely from attending all future matches at White Hart Lane.

· Any supporter found to be touting their Season Ticket, Club Membership or match ticket will have it cancelled with no refund and BANNED indefinitely from attending all future matches at White Hart Lane.

· Any supporter that attempts to gain entry to the stadium with a child’s ticket will be turned away at the turnstile, have their Season Ticket or Membership cancelled with no refund and BANNED indefinitely from attending all future matches at White Hart Lane.

· We will also investigate and refer to the Police any unauthorised agent, agency or website that is selling or marketing our tickets. Ticketing touting is a criminal offence under section 166 of the Criminal Justice and Public Order Act 1994 and Football Offences and Disorder Act 1999. Touts are liable to prosecution under these Acts and the Club will co-operate fully with the authorities to ensure this happens.

If you have been a victim of a tout, if you suspect someone sitting near you is touting our tickets or if you know of an adult who uses a child’s ticket to gain entry to White Hart Lane, please email us at outthetout@tottenhamhotspur.com or contact us on 0870 420 5000. We will treat your call or email in total confidence.

Thank you for your continued support and co-operation.
