Travel advice - Young Boys

Information for fans travelling to Switzerland for our UEFA Champions League play-off first leg against Young Boys on Tuesday.

Young Boys, who beat Turkish side Fenerbahce to reach the play-offs, are based in Switzerland's capital city Bern.

For a map of the stadium and travel details, CLICK HERE...(pdf).


Spurs fans travelling to Bern will find a very picturesque Town with numerous historical buildings, towers and of course, clocks!

Bern is renowned for its Bears, which are proudly shown on the flag for the vicinity and they have been associated with the Town for over 400 years.

One of the most visited sightseeing spots is the Baren-graben, which translates as Bear Park. Currently, there are four bears in enclosures that can be found at the Aarehang.

There are many bars, cafes and restaurants and one British Pub, The Nelson, which is situated in Spitalgasse in the centre of Town.


The currency is Swiss Francs, although Euros are taken at many places.


The Stadium is approximately 15-20 minutes walk away from the Town centre, but there are a number of Taxi ranks available together with public transport.

Tram and train details can be seen on the information sheet supplied by Young Boys - see link at the top of the page.

The Stadium will open two hours before kick off and the entry point for Spurs fans is Sector B - B12 - 15. This entry point is clearly signposted and is on Sempachstrasse at the north end of the Stadium.

All fans will be searched and have their tickets visually checked on entry. Once inside, the tickets will be checked electronically prior to entering the concourse.

As always THFC Stewards will be available both inside and outside the Stadium to assist with any problems.

The Stade de Suisse is only a few years old and has ample concourse space with catering and welfare facilities easily accessible.

Programmes are free and will be issued one per person on entry.

Flags and banners are welcome, providing the wording is appropriate and these will be checked on entry. Please ensure that any flag poles do not exceed 1.5m as these will be confiscated at the gates.

As with all European fixtures, alcohol will not be available at the Stadium and fans that appear to have drunk excessively will not be allowed to enter the Stadium and will be detained by the local Police.

It is likely that ours fans will be held back for 30 - 45 minutes but you will be able to access toilets during this time. Please be patient whilst waiting to exit as this may assist to release fans earlier.

Finally, in case of emergency, there will be two officials from the British Consul in attendance and they will be able to assist anyone who may have lost their passport, been detained or have any problems at all with travel back to the UK.

If you have a reason to speak with them, please approach one of the THFC Officials/Stewards who will assist further.
