Tottenham Hotspur Stadium test event dates set

Tottenham Hotspur have confirmed the dates for orientation and Test Events that will be held at the club’s new stadium in the lead-up to the first Premier League game against Liverpool on 15 September.

Operational orientation days will be held for Club and Stadium staff on Saturday 4 August and for staff and suppliers in respect of premium areas on Sunday 19 August.

These events will not be open to the public and will not require any matchday travel measures to be implemented.

In order to achieve a safety certificate for the new stadium, the club is required to hold two Test Events with increasing levels of attendances.

The two events are an Academy match on Monday 27 August and a Legends match against Bayern Munich on Saturday 1 September.

Test Event One on Monday 27 August represents a clash with Spurs’ away fixture against Manchester United in the Premier League, with some fans due to be travelling to Old Trafford on that day.

The maximum capacity for these two Test Events will be determined shortly. Both are expected to require traffic measures such as road closures to be implemented.

Supporters will be able to apply to attend these two Test Events through two ballots and Spurs said priority for both events will be given to Season Ticket Holders and Executive members, followed by One Hotspur + and then One Hotspur members.

In the unlikely event that any tickets remain after these groups have been allocated, a General Sale of tickets will take place. These will be ticketed events in support of nominated charities.
