The Club has become the first in the Premier League to give its fans access to the revolutionary PhotoRoute app.
The innovative mapping tool aims to ease the external and internal navigation of White Hart Lane, enhancing the matchday experience for fans, especially those with disabilities.
PhotoRoute uses virtual images to provide a step-free route to supporters from public and private transport locations to their desired stadium entrance. Once inside the ground, fans can navigate indoor routes to disabled seating areas.
The app’s inclusive design is aimed at helping people across a range of disabilities, including physical disabilities and learning difficulties. PhotoRoute can also assist fans who do not use English as their first language.
PhotoRoute has been championed by Tottenham Hotspur Foundation, the Club’s charitable body that has a track record of providing sporting opportunities for disabled people in our local community.
Jonathan Waite, Customer Services Manager, said: “The Club is constantly looking at ways in which it can enhance the matchday experience for fans.
“We believe that offering the PhotoRoute service will ease navigation in and around White Hart Lane for all supporters, especially those with disabilities.
“By working closely with our award-winning Foundation, and liaising with the Tottenham Hotspur Disabled Association, the Club is confident it can address the needs of its disabled supporters and continue to ensure the fantastic matchday experience is inclusive of all fans.”
