Experiencing a match day at Tottenham’s Stadium

The Tottenham Hotspur Stadium is undoubtedly one of the finest stadiums in Europe, if not the world. It’s certainly one of the most expensive ever built, and it is jam packed with features and facilities that are all designed to provide fans with the ultimate way to enhance their matchday experience.

Obviously, for Spurs fans, what happens on the pitch will be the major contributing factor to determine whether they’ve had a good day out at the football, but this new stadium that they get to call home enables them to have a great day out no matter what the result on the pitch. Rumour has it that Cristian Romero’s questionable disciplinary record is all down to the fact that he just loves spending time in the stadium…

In this article we are going to take a look at what kind of matchday experience you can expect when you visit the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, including some of the incredible Tottenham Hotspur hospitality packages that are available which offer premium seats as well as access to a range of bars and lounges.

What is it like attending a match at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium?

Let’s run through what you can expect when you go to a Spurs home game.

Getting there

The Tottenham Hotspur Stadium is pretty well connected to the transport network in London, it’s serviced by four different stations which are all within walking distance. While White Hart Lane is the closest to the ground, it is usually incredibly busy on a match day, so you’re probably better off avoiding that one. Tottenham Hale is connected to National Rail lines, so that might be a good option if you are travelling from outside London. Seven Sisters is around a half hour walk away from the stadium, but there are plenty of bars and pubs that you might want to pop into on the way! Northumberland Park is another option, just a 10 minute walk away.

There is also a free shuttle bus that runs from Wood Green and Alexandra Palace, which is a great option. We would advise against driving to the stadium if you can avoid it – you’ll struggle to find anywhere to park.

Best pubs near Tottenham Hotspur Stadium

If you fancy a drink before you enter the stadium, here are a few options for you:

  • The Bricklayers Arms: This is a classic ‘Spurs’ pub – decked out in scarves and other memorabilia and just 100 yards from the ground. It will be rammed on a matchday, but well worth a visit.
  • The Coach & Horses: Another great Spurs pub, with a lovely garden when the weather is pleasant. Just a five minute walk from the stadium, and a great atmosphere on matchdays.
  • The Antwerp Arms: A great option for both home and away fans – there’s usually a lively atmosphere, but great for a bit of banter between the two sets of supporters. A 10 minute walk from the stadium.

Inside the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium – General Admission Tickets

While there are some great options for a drink or some food outside the ground – you’re really missing a trick if you don’t spend a decent amount of time inside the stadium. We mentioned the 65 food and drink outlets above, and that gives you some indication about the variety of options on offer.

One of the big things at any stadium is how quickly you can get served. With the longest bar in Europe (65 metres), an in-house brewery and state-of-the-art beer pouring system, the club boasts that they can pour 10,000 pints a minute. This has drastically reduced the amount of time you have to queue (around 5 minutes at the busiest periods). If you need a drink at half time, you can probably expect to miss a few minutes either side of the break, but it is certainly better than most stadiums.

If you’re after some food, you are spoilt for choice. Pizza, Indian, noodles, fried chicken plus the standard chips, burgers, hot dogs and pies. There is more choice inside the stadium than you get on some high streets.

Wherever you are seated for the match, you are guaranteed to have good seats. The views from all over the stadium are great, and you won’t miss a second of the action. Spurs have put in work to generate a great atmosphere as well – the South Stand is where you’ll find most of the noise, especially for the big games.

Post match, the traffic and queues for public transport usually means that you are better off staying in the stadium for a while – there is no need to rush out just to join another queue. Take your time, maybe have another drink or some food, and wait in those lovely surroundings while the queues die down – you’ll have a much more pleasant trip home if you do.

What’s it like watching Spurs?

Under new boss Ange Postecoglou, Spurs have been reborn. Despite the loss of Harry Kane, Postecoglou has brought a renewed energy and optimism to the club. With signings like Brennan Johnson from Nottingham Forest, plus James Maddison from Leicester City, Spurs are one of the most exciting sides in the Premier League at the moment, playing exciting attacking football. Playing a high defensive line, similar to Aston Villa, ensures that fans are kept on the edge of their seat for the entire game. Unpredictable, attacking and exciting – what more can you ask for?

Inside the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium – Hospitality Packages

While the experience may differ depending on which premium experience you opt for (and we’ll take a look at a couple of options further down this article), there are a few things you can expect no matter which VIP tickets you purchase. All premium tickets come with a dedicated fast-track entrance.

You will have exclusive access to the stadium for up to three hours before kick off, and we would urge you to take full advantage of this to really make the most of the experience. The East Stand and the West Stand both have two tiers dedicated to premium seats, and both have premium bars and lounges to enhance the premium experience.

In these lounges you might find some live entertainment, a range of dining options (from light bowl food to fine dining), premium bars, appearances from Spurs legends, plenty of screens showing football (great to watch the early kick off), and if you are lucky enough to be in the Upper Tier you will have panoramic views of, not just the pitch, but of the city of London.

The pre-match atmosphere is great – you can feel the anticipation as kick off draws closer, and the new manager has certainly brought with him a certain sense of optimism amongst Spurs fans, which really comes through when you’re in amongst them.

For the match, you will have luxury padded seats – the best seats in the house from which to enjoy the game. You’ll get a great view of the play developing as Spurs work their way up the pitch.

After the match, we would strongly urge you to enjoy another hour of incredible hospitality. As we said in the section above, all you’ll find outside the stadium is queues, so you may as well settle in for another couple of drinks and some great food. Reflect on a great game of football in great company, enjoying great food and drink. The perfect end to a day out.

This package will take you to the fantastic Upper Tier in the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium. You’ll be able to enjoy the incredible Stratus Lounge for three hours before kick off and up to two hours after the game has finished, so you can really make the most of it.

In the lounge you can enjoy the grazing buffet (pre and post match), as well as the complimentary bar, which includes beers, wines and soft drinks as well as a welcome drink on arrival. The lounge itself has panoramic views of London for you to enjoy.

Then for the match, again you will have luxury padded seats in the Upper Tier, right on the halfway line – one of the best views in the Premier League.
