Burnley supporters travelling to White Hart Lane stadium for the Carling Cup fixture should follow the following advice and directions.

For those fans travelling by private car they should note that their is a Controlled Parking Zone (CPZ) which prohibits parking for an area of approximately half-mile around the Stadium. Strict enforcement is in place by the Local Authority. Car users are advised to park away from the Tottenham area and travel onto the Stadium by Public transport.

For Coach’s travelling to Tottenham, parking is available in WEST ROAD, N17. This is a light commercial area with parking set aside for coaches which Police will facilitate. Fans can be set down in the High Road near to the Stadium (see attached map). The coaches will remain in West Road throughout the match. Coaches, with their passengers, should arrive at the Stadium between 6.30pm and 7.30pm.

Supporters wishing to use Public Houses should note that there is a very limited capacity in the Tottenham area for Away supporters. Instead, fans are encouraged to drink in the Kings Cross and Euston areas of London and then travel onto the Stadium.

Supporters should also note that drinking alcohol in the street in the Tottenham area is not allowed. Those persons found in possession of alcohol will face confiscation of the drink and possible Police action.

The nearest Underground station is Seven Sisters (Victoria Line). This is also connected to the British Rail line serving White Hart Lane station. Seven Sisters station is an approximate 20 minute walk to the Stadium.

The Stadium will open at approximately 6.30pm and the Bars inside will serve alcohol and light refreshments. Please note however that, as with all matches at Tottenham Hotspur, alcohol will not be served after the commencement of the match.

Please try to arrive early at the Stadium to avoid congestion at the turnstiles.the THFC stewards will search everyone and check tickets before they get to the turnstiles which always results in congestion at the start of the game outside the stadium.
