The 2016/17 season was the end of an era for Tottenham fans, as they waved a tearful goodbye to White Hart Lane – their home since 1899. In a couple of years, the club will be moving into a brand-spanking new stadium located directly next door, but while it’s being built they’ll take up temporary residence (likely for one season only) at the world famous Wembley Stadium. To mark the occasion, after a strong showing last year that saw them challenge for the title, they will play in the Champions League and many pundits are tipping them for glory under talented young Argentine coach Mario Pochettino.

Like all Premier League clubs, Tottenham play 19 home league games a season, with matches taking place from August to May. The English league is also unique in that fixtures are scheduled for both the Christmas and New Year periods, whereas in other European leagues clubs enjoy an extended winter break in December. With cup games on top, Tottenham are likely to play around 22-30 home games next season, meaning that visitors will have plenty of opportunities to come along and see a game – if they can get a ticket, of course.

That’s where we step in. Matches at White Hart Lane were always in high demand, and that’s likely to continue for their one-season tenancy at Wembley. In fact, with the club doing so well on the pitch and the novelty factor of Wembley Stadium also taking effect, Tottenham could well see unprecedented levels of interest this season. However, that doesn’t necessarily mean you won’t be able to get a ticket. We’ve done some research and outlined some of the best options available below.
With Wembley holding a capacity of 90,000, there’s a high chance that tickets will go on general sale for a number of Spurs home games during the 2017/18 season. This means that you don’t necessarily need to be a Club Member to have a chance of getting a ticket. Details about when tickets go on sale are permanently updated on the club website, so you’re advised to keep an eye on that. If you’re happy to push the boat out, another option is a Hospitality package. Tottenham have created a number of bespoke match-day packages for their season at Wembley that include access to the stadium’s exclusive 120 Club, a champagne reception, four course meal and match seats in a prime location.
While Tottenham run their own ticket exchange system allowing fans to sell tickets back to the club for games they can’t attend, Ticketbis offer the same service via an extremely popular online platform. On Ticketbis, users can buy and sell tickets for sports and other entertainment events – often at the very last minute, making it a great option for those who decide to attend a game at late notice. However, whereas the club always resells tickets at face value, those who put tickets on Ticketbis can set whatever price they wish. The downside of this is that tickets for high profile games are often expensive due to demand, but the upside is that for less prestigious games you can often find a pretty good deal. For example, tickets for a game between Tottenham and Burnley at Wembley Stadium in August are currently available from £70, which is not that much above face value. However, be aware that Ticketbis do charge a commission from each party involved in a ticket exchange.
Best known for their cheap European package holidays, Thomas Cook also provide a popular service for sports fans that combines hotel accommodation with official hospitality tickets for sporting events. For Tottenham matches at Wembley Stadium during the 2017/18 season, Thomas Cook Sport have partnered with a number of London hotels that are just a short distance from the ground. These cover a range of budgets, from the 3-star Travelodge London Wembley to the 5-star Hilton on Park Lane. Once at the stadium, guests get the full treatment, including reserved premium seating, access to a brand new “posh pub” lounge, a complimentary half-time bar, a range of live entertainment and even the chance to meet a Tottenham legend. Prices start at £199 per person for 1 night’s accommodation and a match-day hospitality ticket, though guests can add extra nights to their stay if they wish.
