SEVILLA TRAVEL ADVICE

Posted on 1 April 2007  - 12:00

Supporters should be aware that the first leg of our UEFA Cup quarter-final match against Sevilla on Thursday coincides with the city hosting one of Spain's largest religious events.

Supporters should be aware that the first leg of our UEFA Cup quarter-final match against Sevilla on Thursday coincides with the city hosting one of Spain's largest religious events.

Up to one million visitors from all over the world are expected to attend, with the most important processions taking place that evening and in the early hours of April 6.

Please note it is considered extremely disrespectful for tourists to wear t-shirts and shorts on these days. Drinking alcohol in the street is strictly prohibited and those that do will receive an immediate €300 fine and possible arrest.

There will be a specially designated 'Tottenham Hotspur Fan Zone' situated five minutes walk from Sevilla’s Stadium, in front of the city’s train station on the Avenida (Avenue) José Laguillo. This area will have bars, food outlets, music and entertainment and supporters are advised to wait in this area until the match, avoiding the city centre. CLICK HERE for a map.

Supporters who are travelling to Seville should also be aware of the following points:

Access to/from Seville and movement within will be severely restricted and heavily policed - any sign of disrespect for the religious processions will be met by zero tolerance from the police

Given that the town’s population increases during this time, there will be no accommodation available if you have not booked in advance.

Both the Thursday and Friday are also public holidays in Spain and, therefore, normal transport and public services will be restricted

CLICK HERE for further details and travel advice.

The stadium will be open at 18.45pm.

Please ensure you allow plenty of time to travel to the Stadium as there will be several ticket checks before supporters reach the turnstiles and all fans will be subjected to a search.

Standard stadium practices will apply – it is not permitted to take alcohol into the stadium or any item that could be potentially used as a weapon. Flags and banners are acceptable provided they are not on poles and do not carry any wording that could be considered as racist or offensive.

Supporters should be aware that the stands at the Stadium are very steep and so fans should allow longer than normal to get to their seat. For the added safety of our fans, there will be several Tottenham Hotspur stewards and officials at the game.

We strongly advise supporters without tickets for the match not to travel to Seville. Tickets will NOT be available on the night to Spurs fans and those found to have purchased touted or counterfeit tickets WILL be refused admission. Any Spurs supporters attempting to gain access into home areas of the ground will be EJECTED. Please note there will also be a very large local police operation in the city and around this game.

If during your trip you require assistance, you can contact the British Consulate on 95 235 23 00.

The Club would like to remind fans travelling to the game that as a Tottenham Hotspur supporter you are an ambassador for the Club. We ask that your behaviour reflect that at all times.
