Information for fans attending the Villa match
Tue 18 May 2021, 11:39|Tottenham Hotspur
We are delighted to welcome fans back to Tottenham Hotspur Stadium for our final home match of 2020/21 against Aston Villa on Wednesday evening (6pm).
The Club has implemented a number of measures at the stadium to ensure the health and safety of those attending, in line with Government guidance and that of the Sports Grounds Safety Authority (SGSA) and the Premier League.
Our updated Code of Conduct is available online and we ask all match ticket purchasers to agree to the terms stated - we encourage you to remind yourselves of what this entails before attending.
Health and safety measures in place will mean that your matchday experience will be somewhat different to what you would have been used to pre-pandemic. We therefore advise fans to carefully read the following guide and familiarise yourself with the details ahead of your visit to the stadium.
Your digital match ticket will be activated once you have completed your health questionnaire, which you have already been sent. Please make sure everyone in your party has completed their questionnaire before travelling to the stadium. Parents or guardians may complete it on behalf of any juniors with whom they are attending.
Code of Conduct
Please ensure that you read and adhere to the terms stated in our Code of Conduct. The Code stipulates that face masks or face coverings must be worn at all times, except when eating or drinking.
Check your seat and entry time
Your digital ticket is valid within a specific entry time to control the flow of supporters into the stadium and reduce the associated risks of most supporters arriving at the same time. As you may not be using your normal Season Ticket seat, please take note of your entrance number and specific entry time stated on your digital ticket. We strongly advise you plan your travel to arrive for your allotted entry time, otherwise you may be refused entry.

Attending with a junior?
Junior digital tickets will be emailed to the registered email address on the account.

Bags, Flags and Prohibited Items Policy

Complimentary hot food pre-match
All hot food options will be complimentary pre-match across our range of stadium food outlets. As social distancing measures will be in place, our hot food options will consist of quick-serve items, including our usual matchday fan favourites. Food and non-alcoholic drink can be consumed in the stadium bowl but please note that alcohol cannot. Alcohol must be consumed instead at one of the additional seating areas provided in our concourse areas, as per our licensing agreement. Catering staff will take food and drink orders from supporters located in our accessible areas and bring their order to them.
Take your seat - let us entertain you
Get in your seat early as we bring you a full 90-minute programme of pre-match entertainment in the bowl. From 4.30pm, there will be a live DJ set, with a matchday playlist to build the atmosphere ahead of kick-off. You'll be able to watch our popular N17 Live broadcast on our big screens, bringing you all the build-up in the company of special guest, Jermain Defoe. This special edition broadcast will also reveal our One Hotspur Player of the Season, Junior Player of the Season and our Goal of the Season, as voted by our fans.
Inside the stadium
Once you're inside the stadium, your matchday experience will be a little different to what you were used to before. Here are some important things to note...
Additional hand sanitiser stations have been installed throughout the concourses that we encourage fans to use, as well as in all washrooms. We also encourage fans to bring their own hand sanitiser with them if possible, in bottles no larger than 50ml. Enhanced cleaning measures - including infection control fogging, electrostatic spraying and disinfecting - will be taking place pre, during and post event.
At Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, we are fortunate to have bright and spacious concourse areas that allow for social distancing. We shall nonetheless ask that you please take note of the clear signage and floor markings as you move around, enabling you to keep your distance from others. Regular PA announcements will remind fans of their social distancing obligations. Our digital screens within the concourses will not be showing any football content that may encourage any fans to gather, and will only be showing useful instructional content around social distancing.
We are proud to have a fully cashless stadium for increased speed of service and improved hygiene.
Payments can be made using the following methods:
- All major contactless debit and credit cards - the payment limit is £45
- Mobile and wearable payment, including Apple Pay and Google Pay - this method supports high-value contactless payments
To learn more about the new measures that will be in place, please see our Matchday FAQs.
All match attenders will receive a digital copy of our matchday programme free to download onto their mobile device and read ahead of kick-off, including all the usual exclusive interviews and features. Although we are offering a digital programme to reduce social contact where possible, a physical copy of the programme will still be available to purchase from the Tottenham Experience and Tap Inns on the day for the collectors amongst you.
Leaving the stadium
Our concessions will remain open for you to order food and drink until 8.45pm, and you will be able to stay within the stadium until it closes at 9.15pm.
When you do decide to leave the stadium, please continue to follow social distancing guidelines and keep your face covering on. Avoid gathering in groups of more than six people outside of your household bubble.
Social distancing measures on public transport may mean a longer than expected wait to board trains. In the event of queues, supporters are requested to be patient and wait to enter stations. Stewards will be present at stations post-match to ensure any queues can be managed as safely as possible. Supporters are asked to respect and work with staff at our stations.
The Spurs Shop at the Tottenham Experience will be open for you to visit - 10am-9pm on matchday. It will operate as it has done during the pandemic - there will be a one-way system and a limit to the number of people permitted in store at any one time. A limited number of matchday programmes will be available to purchase in-store.
The Club does not tolerate abusive, offensive or discriminatory behaviour of any sort and both the police and ourselves will take action against anyone behaving in this way.
Fans are reminded that our Ground Regulations state, ‘racial, homophobic or discriminatory abuse, chanting or harassment is strictly forbidden and will result in arrest and / or ejection from the Ground'.
The Club reserves the right to indefinitely ban supporters found guilty of using discriminatory language.
As you are arriving at or leaving the stadium, please be considerate to our neighbours. Information on our recycling bins located around the stadium will help ensure you correctly dispose of your waste.
