Support your local traders - arrive early for the game

We are calling on fans to show their support for our local traders in Tottenham who were affected by the recent disturbances.

We are calling on fans to show their support for our local traders in Tottenham who were affected by the recent disturbances.

By arriving early for Thursday night’s Europa League game with Rubin Kazan, kick off 8.05pm, and spending time on the High Road - which is open for business and boasts a wide range of local family-run shops and food outlets - fans can make the most of a matchday and also bring much-needed life and activity to the area and its businesses.

We shall also be offering an Earlybird Discount of 10% on merchandise for fans between 3pm and 6pm in all of our matchday stores.

Cllr Alan Strickland, Haringey Council’s Cabinet Member for Economic Development, said:

“As a Spurs fan you make a huge difference to the local businesses on Tottenham High Road. Our local traders were badly hit by the riots, but we are determined as a borough to come back bigger, prouder and stronger than before. Please come and show that you want to get Tottenham back in business by supporting the range of great local shops and food outlets. Thanks for your support.”

As a further show of support to local traders, local businesses, Council staff and the Emergency Services most affected by the troubles have been invited as our guests at the game.

Daniel Levy, Chairman, Tottenham Hotspur, said:

"Like so many other local businesses, we were directly affected by the recent unrest and are delighted to invite our fellow traders as guests at this match. European nights at White Hart Lane are always special occasions, and we hope this will be a memorable evening for those in attendance.

“We are working closely with the Tottenham Traders Partnership and Haringey Council to help Tottenham recover from the troubles. We therefore encourage our fans to make the most of the vibrant matchday atmosphere along Tottenham High Road.”

The Club continues to work closely with Haringey Council and the Tottenham Traders Partnership to bring people back out onto Tottenham High Road and boost a local economy hit hard by August’s civil unrest.
