UPDATED - CHANGE TO TRAVEL ADVICE FOR FANS GOING TO WEMBLEY
Posted 12 April 2012 6:01pm
We have now been advised that fans can use either of Wembley's three stations as they travel to the semi-final on Sunday.
If we receive any further updates to the travel advice we will publish here on tottenhamhotspur.com and through our usual communication channels, so please keep an eye out.
We kick-off at 6pm and our supporters will be in the West end of the stadium.
Once again we should like to ask all our supporters to please remember that you are ambassadors of the Club and we would request that you behave accordingly throughout the entirety of your visit to Wembley on Sunday. The Club is rightly proud of our loyal support and we all hope you have an enjoyable day.
Fans can take a look at the view from their seat via Wembley Stadium's website - http://www.wembleystadium.com/TheStadium/ViewFromYourSeat.aspx - CLICK HERE...
Fans are advised not to purchase tickets from unofficial sources ahead of the match and should be aware of the possibility that forged tickets could be in circulation.
Fans are also advised that the London Borough of Brent is a Controlled Drinking Zone (CDZ).
It is an offence to consume alcohol on the streets or public places and can result in arrest. Persons found in possession of alcohol in these areas will have it seized by police and disposed of.
There are closures on the London Underground/Overground but none that should directly impact our supporters travelling to the match.
At present there are the following closures:
- No Circle Line
- District Line closed between Earl’s Court and Aldgate East, and Turnham Green to Richmond.
There is a full service scheduled to operate on the Victoria, Piccadilly (to and from the Tottenham area) and on the Metropolitan, Jubilee and Bakerloo lines (to and from Wembley).
There are a couple of London Overground closures (Richmond to Willesden Junction and Queen’s Park to Watford Junction) but these should have a limited impact on most Tottenham supporters travelling to and from the game.
