Tottenham Hotspur Stadium Tickets Information
Tickets, Seats, and Stands
Like all stadiums, the Tottenham stadium has four distinct sides.
- The South Side currently makes up the largest single-tier stand in the entire country. It is meant to be the stand’s “heartbeat” and contains shops, bars, and restaurants.
- The North Stand has three tiers and is welcome to away fans in the North-East corner.
- The East Stand has four tiers, of which two are designed for premium seating.
- The West Stand has four tiers and is dedicated to corporate supporters.
Ticket prices are split into Category A, Category B, and Category C. Within those categories there are different ticket prices based on which stand you want to sit in.
- Category A: £52 - £98.
- Category B: £43 - £72
- Category C: £30 - £60
Choosing the best seats in the stadium is subjective. There are side stands, perfect for an analyzer who wants to see the entire field from halfway up the side stand. Despite this area being a higher price, the halfway line is usually the first area to sell out and usually belong to season ticket holders.
Overall, wherever you sit, you’re guaranteed to have an awesome experience.
Away Fan’s Stand
Away fans are located in the lower tier of the Northeast corner of the. The away fans area is small, and it can be hard to get tickets. They are first opened to Season Ticket Holders and then One Hotspur and One Hotspur members. If you are sitting in the away section, make sure to enter through Gate 11 where tickets are checked.
Away fans may be surprised to see ‘safe standing’ areas in the stadium, but the club ironically has a strict no ‘persistent standing’ rule. This means if you stand for too long, you may be asked to sit down by stewards.

Landmarks and points of interest in Tottenham Hotspur Stadium
There are a couple landmarks that we think are worth seeing while you’re at Tottenham Hotspur stadium.
First, look for Centre Spot. It’s in the concourse underneath the south-east corner and it marks the location for the centre spot of the old White Hart Lane, which the new stadium overlaps.
The Cockerel is at the top of the South Stand and it’s a replica of the iconic golden cockerel from White Hart Lane. It’s almost twice as tall as the original but it’s worth finding while you’re at the game. If you see it, take a selfie with it in the background!
Find the old programme covers that are a nod to the Tottenham’s history. It’s a striking wall on the south-west corner. If you can find it when it’s less crowded, take a photo! Everyone will know where you are since it’s a famous and memorable spot.
Infrastructures, Stores, Food, Drink:
The Tottenham stadium delivers the ultimate matchday experience with uninterrupted sightlines and spectators closer to the pitch compared to other UK stadiums. The stands are steep, creating a tighter and more compact stadium bowl. However, one thing to note about Tottenham is that it’s completely cashless. Whether you’re buying a beer, a couple shirts, of wings, Tottenham does not accept cash. There are 60 outlets for food spread out between the four stands in the stadium and toilets are close to all the outlets.

This is a self-guided tour where you can view the team areas, learn how the stadium was designed, view the changing rooms, and walk the famous corridors with a Spurs Legend. The tour is 90-minutes and is full of Spur’s history.
Enjoy a Stadium Tour and Skywalk, which includes everything from the Stadium Tour with the added Dare Skywalk experience. You’ll get suited up in your safety gear and harnesses, head all the way to the stadium’s top tier above street level and brave the test on the glass walkway.
