Spurs v Bournemouth - Wembley information for fans
12 October 2017|Tottenham Hotspur
Here is everything you need to know ahead of visiting Wembley Stadium, connected by EE, for our Premier League match against AFC Bournemouth on Saturday. Kick-off is 3pm.
This information has been divided into sections - click the headline below to be directed straight to the relevant section:
ARRIVE EARLY FOR SECURITY CHECKS/BAG POLICY
We strongly advise supporters arrive early and enter the stadium as soon as possible.
Turnstiles open 90 minutes before our 3pm kick-off against Bournemouth, with Premium areas open two-and-a-half hours before kick-off, and all supporters entering the stadium will be searched before entry.
Please help the staff at Wembley get you into the stadium as quickly as possible by avoiding bringing any bags and having your coat open ready to be searched, as well as having your tickets or access cards ready to be scanned at the turnstile.
Searching will not be compromised in the event of queues building, even if the match has started. If bringing a bag is unavoidable, please try to use a transparent plastic bag as these will speed up the search. If you need to bring a bag for medical purposes, please inform us in advance at email@example.com and we will liaise with Wembley to ensure ease of entry.
Please be aware that Wembley does not have lockers or luggage storage facilities for fans to store items.
We would recommend all fans arrive at the stadium in order to clear security in plenty of time before the match starts at 3pm. Increased security procedures have been in place for some time and they will not be reduced or compromised in the event of queues forming before kick-off.
FAN ZONE INFORMATION/DIWALI
Look out for our Fan Zones at Arena Square and the Events Pad at Wembley.
As the Club celebrates the cultural festival of Diwali, we will be treated to music from a Punjabi band at 11.30am and a sample of a dance performance by VP Bhangra, who will also be performing at half-time during the match, at 12.10pm.
Our activity is being recognised by Kick It Out and will see the launch of Punjabi Spurs – a UK-based cultural Supporters’ Club inclusive of fans of all backgrounds from around the world. More details here...
Elsewhere in our Fan Zones, look out for interviews with legends on the main stage at Arena Square, our Spurs DJs, skill zones, face painting, fan frames and plenty of giveaways! Also, keep an eye out for our popular mascots Chirpy and Lily.

WEMBLEY STADIUM IS A PUBLIC TRANSPORT DESTINATION
We would recommend all supporters attending the match visit www.wembleystadium.com to get more information about travelling to the stadium, or download the Stadium Mobile App which provides a dedicated journey planner and live travel information.
More information about the various transport hubs can be found below...
As a public transport destination, the stadium is served by several major transport connections. It is an easy 10-minute walk from Wembley Park station, 12 minutes from Wembley Central station and very close to Wembley Stadium station.
All stations have direct services from Central London and connections beyond.
Wembley Park station
Wembley Park underground station is served by both the Metropolitan and Jubilee Lines. On arrival at Wembley Park, stairs from the ticketing hall will guide you down onto Olympic Way from where the stadium will be clearly visible. A 10-minute walk will bring you to the front of the stadium.
Wembley Central station
This station has both Underground and Overground services. It is served by the Bakerloo Underground line, London Overground and national rail services, and connects to stations including Euston, Watford Junction and Willesden Junction.

⚠️ Please note, the @metline will not be running between Aldgate & Kings cross tomorrow. Please plan your journeys accordingly ⚠️— Wembley Stadium (@wembleystadium) October 13, 2017
ARRIVING BY CAR
We strongly advise against driving to the stadium as there will be no parking available at the stadium or in the surrounding streets.
The limited parking spaces at the stadium are reserved for coaches, disabled visitors and event owners and are all pre-booked.
Brent Council operates a Wembley Stadium Event Day Protective Parking Scheme in all roads within an approximate 1.5 mile radius of the stadium. Operational on major event days only, the scheme is designed to minimise disruption and protect local residents and businesses from illegal parking from visitors to the stadium.
This means any visitors driving to events at Wembley Stadium will NOT be able to park in the surrounding streets. Brent Council has made it clear that illegally parked vehicles will be issued with large parking fines and will also be towed away.
In addition, Metropolitan Police may have security measures on approach roads on major event days which may also hinder a journey by car.
