Travel advice for Wisla Krakow

Information for fans travelling to Poland for our UEFA Cup first round, second leg tie against Wisla Krakow this Thursday, October 2.

The Henryk Reyman Stadium is approximately 20 minutes walk from the City Centre and is well served by trams. Tickets for Spurs fans are situated in Section E5, which is the dedicated area for visiting fans.

A map of the stadium plus directions is available HERE...

As always, you will be met by a team of THFC Stewards who will assist you if necessary.

Please be aware that flags and banners will be allowed entry, but only with appropriate wording.

Please note that Wisla Krakow do not allow flags bearing the Star of David to be displayed by home or visiting fans as these fall within the category of religious/political banners/symbols.

Please be informed that it is forbidden to enter the Stadium with any and all types of weapons and other types of objects that may be used as weapons (in particular, but not limited to: bottles, cans, sticks, powered instruments, etc.), explosives, pyrotechnical products, hazardous materials, alcoholic products, drug and psychotropic substances, balaclavas and face-covering masks to prevent identification by police or safety forces. The aforesaid objects shall be confiscated or transferred to appropriate personnel.

Persons under the influence of alcohol/drugs or any similar intoxicating substances are hereby strictly forbidden to enter and stay at the Stadium.

No video cameras and/or large photo cameras shall be allowed at the Stadium.

To be able to safely watch the match, the fans of Tottenham are advised to stay at the allocated sectors.

All supporters will be subjected to a search prior to entering the Stadium.

Please note that there will be no Wisla Krakow Stewards at the stadium as the Polish club only employs Special Security Officers to supplement their Policing arrangements - both carry batons and in some cases, C.S. Gas canisters.

There are adequate welfare facilities at the Stadium including an area to purchase souvenirs.

It is likely that the Stadium will open two hours prior to kick off and visiting fans may be held back for up to 45 minutes after the final whistle. Welfare facilities can be used during this time - please be patient whilst the Police ensure that the home fans have left the area.

In the City Centre itself, local Police will not tolerate drunken behaviour and fans will be arrested if found to be acting in a manner that is likely to endanger themselves or others. The Police will be carrying out a robust operation and will not accept inappropriate or aggressive behaviour of any type. They will carry out frequent patrols of the Centre using cameras for evidence gathering.

Fans found to be drunk may be taken to a drying out centre and will be charged for the cost of their stay. The Police have the right to detain you for up to 48 hours without charge.

As always, we must stress that different countries have different levels of tolerance of behaviour - fans travelling to Wisla Krakow should be aware that no anti-social behaviour whatsoever will be tolerated.

The City Centre has numerous bars and cafes and is a pretty, historic area and local souvenirs include glass and silverware. There are horse-drawn carriages for those wishing to see the City in more detail.

The British Consul has advised that you should carry a photocopy of your passport or other security documentation if you are staying in the City. Take extra care in the City Centre and on public transport, as there is a risk of pickpockets.

May we please remind you that anyone travelling to our UEFA Cup matches abroad is doing so as an Ambassador of the Club. It is vital that respect is shown at all times to our hosts and the local community. Any cases of disorder will be dealt with firmly by the local Police and UEFA.

Fans without tickets should not travel to this fixture as the areas designated to THFC fans has sold out and no further tickets will be made available.

Several fans who travelled without tickets to Rotterdam were arrested so please heed this advice and do not travel if you do not have a ticket.

Fans should also be aware that no duplicate/replacement tickets will be available.
