Information for fans travelling to Stamford Bridge
Thu 20 February 2020, 16:47|Tottenham Hotspur
Ahead of Saturday’s match against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge, which kicks-off at 12.30pm, we should like to advise supporters to try and make their way to the stadium as close to turnstiles opening as they can (10.30am).
Chelsea operate a queuing procedure to coordinate and moderate the flow of supporters to the turnstiles to ensure safe entry into the stadium. This procedure will include ticket checks and body and bag searches. It may also involve temporarily holding supporters at cordon points to ease congestion. More information can be found in the Visiting Supporters' Advice document.
As this is a London derby, we shall be taking a large contingent of Tottenham Hotspur stewards, with everyone’s safety of paramount importance.
We are fiercely proud of our anti-racism work and our zero tolerance of any form of discrimination. Should you witness behaviour that is abusive or discriminative then please report it immediately either via a steward or by messaging us confidentially on 07537 404821. These messages are received directly by our safety team at the match and enable us to take immediate action.
Local derby matches are always passionate affairs and we know our supporters will want to play their part on these occasions by getting behind the team in a positive way, ensuring headlines are made solely on the pitch.
We hope all those travelling to Stamford Bridge have a safe and enjoyable experience.
Chelsea’s advice for visiting supporters provides details on travel planning, arrival information and assistance available on the day of a match.
