08 December 2017|Tottenham Hotspur
Here is everything you need to know if you are attending our Premier League match against Stoke City at Wembley Stadium, connected by EE, on Saturday.
A reminder that we kick-off at 3pm.
TICKET NEWS - SPURS v STOKE
Tickets for this fixture are on general sale. This is a Category C match. Purchase tickets HERE...
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.
NOAH'S ARK - SPREADING CHRISTMAS CHEER AT WEMBLEY
Our Official Charity Partner, Noah’s Ark Children’s Hospice, will be holding a collection around the stadium at tomorrow’s Premier League match against Stoke City at Wembley. Noah’s Ark is North’s London’s only ‘Hospice at Home’ service providing support for children and young people with life-limiting and life-threatening conditions and their families. We ask that fans please give generously to a fantastic cause and help make Christmas that little bit easier for the families of seriously ill children within our local community.
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 3pm kick-off against Stoke with Premium areas open at 12.30pm.
Every supporter entering the stadium will be searched before entry and this 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.
Please be aware that Wembley does not have lockers or luggage storage facilities for fans to store items.
Thanks, as always, for your understanding.

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.
