It was a long time coming, but after several lengthy delays the brand new Tottenham Hotspur Stadium finally opened its doors in April last year. Boasting a capacity of over 62,000, making it the biggest football stadium in London and – crucially – larger than that of Tottenham’s bitter local rivals Arsenal – fans of the lillywhites will be hoping that the stunning arena will in time help propel the club to glory after more than ten years without a trophy – although that ambition still remains elusive.

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, and with the club now regular participants in European tournaments too, Spurs typically play at least 30 home games per 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 the old White Hart Lane were always in high demand, and that’s likely to continue at their new home. In fact, with the club performing well on the pitch under recently acquired coach Jose Mourinho and the novelty factor of a new stadium still in effect, Tottenham are continuing to see unprecedented levels of interest in their second season at their fancy new abode. 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.
Seatsbay are currently our preferred choice for buying Tottenham tickets online. The well-regarded sports tickets broker has impressive availability for all games at Tottenham Hotspur stadium – and at reasonable prices too. We discovered tickets starting at about £80 GBP for games against Brighton and Norwich, although for more high profile opponents, such as Liverpool or arch rivals Arsenal, rates can be substantially higher. Seatsbay have a wide network of suppliers, and the tickets they offer tend to be advertised by members unable to attend certain games, so they receive the tickets prior to reselling them, meaning the risk of fakes is virtually zilch. Tickets are usually shipped 2 to 3 days ahead of the fixture – and often before – and you can get them sent to a hotel for collection if you prefer. In fact, for London clubs like Tottenham, there are also designated locations around the central districts where you can pick up the tickets, which is a useful service for those who have bought their tickets at the last moment.
Founded more than ten years ago, Livefootballtickets.com are another highly reputable online source for purchasing footy tickets. Their fees are a touch higher than Seatsbay, but on the plus side they tended to offer a bigger choice of tickets for a number of games that we searched for. Another benefit is that Livefootballtickets.com allow you to purchase up to 4 tickets all alongside each other, which is handy for big groups wanting to go to a game together. During our searches for Tottenham games for the remainder of the 2019/20 season, tickets were available for every remaining home fixture, with prices starting at £77 for less prestigious games such as Tottenham vs Norwich in late January. For peace of mind, the website also offers a “150%” money-back guarantee if, for example, you fail to receive your tickets, or cannot access the stadium due to a problem with your tickets at the gate.
