Spurs v Palace - information for fans
03 November 2017|Tottenham Hotspur
Here is everything you need to know if you are attending our Premier League match against Crystal Palace at Wembley Stadium, connected by EE, on Sunday - including travel and retail details, a message on ticketing and, as always, our advice to arrive as early as possible.
A reminder that we kick-off at 12noon on Sunday.
We are aware of some supporters experiencing issues entering Wembley ahead of our Champions League match against Real Madrid on Wednesday night, resulting in longer than normal queues both at the Ticket Office and turnstiles.
Please read 'Ticketing issues: A reminder to fans'HERE.
SPURS REMEMBERS - MINUTE'S SILENCE ON SUNDAY
The Club has dedicated this Sunday’s game against Crystal Palace in support of the Royal British Legion (RBL) Poppy Appeal, honouring all those Servicemen and women who have made the ultimate sacrifice in armed conflict.
The Royal British Legion is the UK’s leading Service charity, providing practical care, advice and support to serving members of the Armed Forces, veterans of all ages and their families.
During the game, players will wear special-edition poppy branded matchshirts which will later be signed and auctioned to raise funds for the RBL.
We shall observe a Minute’s Silence prior to kick off, during which the Last Post will be played by a Trumpeter of the Central Band of the Royal Air Force.
We would like to remind all fans to please be respectful of this if entering the stadium close to the 12noon kick off by remaining silent on the concourse and not interrupting the service.
More details on Spurs Remembers HERE.
AVOID QUEUES - ARRIVE EARLY FOR SECURITY CHECKS - BAG POLICY
We strongly advise supporters to arrive as early as possible for every match at Wembley Stadium, connected by EE.
We recommend all fans arrive at a Wembley transport hub no later than 90 minutes before kick-off. For example, from arriving at Wembley Park station to being through all increased security checks will take in the region of 45 minutes. These 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.
Turnstiles open 90 minutes before our 12noon kick-off against Crystal Palace, with Premium areas open two-and-a-half hours before kick-off.
Every supporter entering the stadium will be searched before entry. Searching will not be compromised in the event of queues building, even if the match has started - there will be no exceptions.
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.
If bringing a bag is unavoidable, please try to use a transparent plastic bag as this 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.
Thanks, as always, for your understanding.
We strongly advise supporters not to purchase tickets from any unofficial sources - either via unofficial websites or from outside Wembley Stadium.
We are aware of some fans purchasing tickets for matches at Wembley through unofficial means resulting in disappointment at being unable to access the stadium.
Supporters travelling to Sunday's match should aware of engineering works affecting Greater Anglia rail services and roadworks on the east side 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.
