3k is the PL minimum (e.g. 3k give or take at Old Trafford), but not sure what the segregated minimum at Wembley or if PL have told Spuds that they have to give a certain amount...

No please. It's a league match. The allocation will be interesting, technically only has to be 3k still.

PL regulation is 10% of capacity up to 3000. Actual quantity will then depend on size of segregated area so could possibly be up to about 4000 probably on one level.

They are not suddenly going to have 87,000 fans and they will want to get good crowds there, be amazed if there are not enough tickets for anyone who wants one

This is probably the correct stance. Give away clubs (and I mean give, as in the away club has the right to return as many as they like on the day) 6,000 and have a tourist/neutral area of 15,000 and sell a load of home season tickets for a very decent low price

They got 90k crowds for a their European games last season.
On the positive, next season there is a New premier league rule that at least part of the away section has to be pitch side, so they can't stick us all in the top tier (and neither can Newcastle)

They will sell a shed load of season tickets.

Many will end up in the hands of touts & experience websites which will then sell them at inflated profit on a game by game basis.

Dorking .Eagle

I'd imagine those who have season tickets at 'Old' White Hart Lane are fine, but that new ones above and beyond that are done on a conditional basis, with no guarantee of a future season ticket at the new ground

Like when the Emirates was opened, I believe a percentage of 'new' season tickets for the larger new ground are only available to local people with certain postcodes.

Season tickets for a large percentage of Wembley would be logical otherwise Burnley on a Tuesday night might be a bit sparse

Where are the away fans going to be located at Wembley Stadium?
For our Premier League matches, visiting supporters will be located in Blocks 112 – 119. This may change for matches in UEFA competition dependent on opponents and their ticketing requirements.

Dorking .Eagle

I do know that at Man Utd, they are keeping away fans where they are for league games, despite there not actually being any 'pitchside' seats, as the only reason there aren't any pitchside is because of a wheelchair section pitchside between the away fans and the pitch

15-05-2017, 11:38 AM
I understand Newcastle are attempting to weasel their way out of the rule by claiming they cannot separate fans outside the stadium if they have away fans anywhere else. Personally I would be all for threatening them with staying in the championship if they don't have a ground ready for the premier league. I am sure they would soon find a way.

Hadn't heard that, that's disappointing, considering the rule was particularly introduced because of them and Sunderland.

And when you come out the away stairwells at Newcastle, and out away from the ground, the supposed segregation only lasts about 20 yards anyway.

They won't be playing Sunderland next season, so segregation outside shouldn't be that much of an issue

Blocks 114, 115 and 117 hold roughly 700 seats each - 2100
Block 116 is tiny in comparison at about 250

By that reckoning the total area is 5,950 seats

They had away fans pitchside in one of the corners before they put that extra tier on, so they've managed before. So did Sunderland. Hopefully the league will put their foot down on this

Spurs confirmed with the FA Press Release last week I think that the season ticket "waiting" list for Wembley is at over 60,000 - after some digging that is current season ticket holders and members who were on the White Hart Lane waiting list as well.

60,000 season ticket holders
6,000 away seats (3,000 being used)

Minus the 2,000 or so Club Wembley seats that presumably won't be available (although i don't know) Spurs will need 22,000 other bums on seats to sell out Wembley.

I highly doubt that Spurs will be selling that amount of tickets, but, they will have to include segregation within that as well. From memory I do not think that Wembley's layout really offers itself out to having a large amount of stewards standing in gangways to provide a human wall effect.

It will probably be closer to half of blocks 112 & 119 off sale for tarpaulin and stewards.

Then blocks 113, 114, 115, 116 & 117 on sale. That gives you a maximum of 5,000 to put on sale.

Could be a similar situation to what has happened at WHU. I've read that they sell season tickets cheaply to concessions. Touts buy kids season tickets and then when it comes to a big game they upgrade to an adult ticket and then sell it on for big money. They could well end up selling out and having thousands of tourists.

This all looks a bit suspicious to me. There are tube ads for tickets for Spurs v Chelsea for 249 each plus VAT, presumably targeted at the corporate market (although I don't think that price includes any hospitality). However, I'm sure these will be available to anyone who has that kind of money. But, of course, if they were to offer a decent away allocation, prices would be capped at the agreed 30 each.

I thought it was an agreement with the local council that it was to be capped. Thought id seen 55-60k? It's part of the very original agreement when Wembley was re-done; certain number of football matches, certain number of other events. Spurs were allowed full stadium for a limited number of Euro matches last season but residents etc unhappy about it being on an almost weekly basis.

Last I heard they did get approval to use the full capacity for all home games this coming season. Looks as though away fans get 3k each which I believe to be a bit low but IF spurs can pack in 85k per game then fair play to them.

Spurs mate at work reckons Brent council will not allow 90k attendances for most of their home games, So most will be limited to 60k. Suppose Spurs will choose the big games(Chelsea,Man Utd,Liverpool,Arse etc) for the 90k games as they can charge top dollar and still sell out.

So looks like 3k for the 60k games and a few more for the full houses i'd guess.

Looks like away teams will be getting an allocation of 6k.

What sh@t behaviour by Spurs.

It's Tottenham's home ground for the season, they can do what they want within the rules. If 3,000 is the minimum allowed and that's what they want to do, then I don't see how anyone can complain.

If the rules need changing, that's a matter for the Premier League.

It's Tottenham away, end of. Be upset for missing Tottenham away by all means, but it's a league game, not a cup game so getting excited by (or upset by missing) the trip just because it's Wembley is cringeworthy IMVHO.

In terms of allocation and positioning, it looks like the PL away fans are basically in the same boat as one of England's opponents would be for an international. Which as above, I think is sensible and fair enough.

Boycott it
Disgraceful that our national stadium is being whored out willy nilly
Thy should have shared with Arsenal or stayed put

Agree that the FA keep coming up with innovative new ways to devalue football's heritage, but the horse has bolted in that regard what with Man Utd taking a huge dump on the FA Cup all those years ago and the pitiful circus that the national team has become.

Having a domestic team play there is horrible, but of course the stadium was so inexplicably expensive to build that they'd whore it out for Nazi rallies if it mean they could recoup their losses.

Boycotting the game deprives Palace fans more than Spurs, but there's no way it deserves the 'occasion' treatment.

It's not Wembley that's the occasion. It's the games at Wembley that are. Play off finals, cup finals, Zenith Data Systems cups.....

Wembley itself is a dull area. It's a pain to get to. And even worse to get away. There are few pubs and the beer inside is shit and expensive.

The iconic towers that at least linked the stadium to all the great games there over the years are gone.

It's just another shiny, superficial, style over substance stadium as far as I'm concerned.

Although the toilets are good.

Arrive/approach via Wembley Central rather than Wembley Park and it is a much more traditional experience - crappy High Street, bookies, tatty cafe's, pubs, ethnic shops and all manner of iffy cultural delights!

Get there early and go left rather than right out of the station and you will find some of the best Indian and Sri Lankan places in London. It won't be your chicken tikka Gora stuff mind.

Thousands of seats on general sale for their game v Burnley.
had 20000 v Juventus as well the other day.

Makes you wonder why they didn't increase the away allocation.

Their friendly v Juventus was priced between 24 - 90, hence the turnout.

Maybe there'll be loads on General sale for the Palace game, and people can organise themselves on here to all book for the same block?

Most of the Upper Tier has rows of empty seats.
The back few rows not even being used/sold by the look of it.

Indeed, as do the vast majority. Nothing wrong with that, but people that do so shouldn't complain that everything they then see is bland and soulless - the alterative of Wembley Central, whilst further to walk brings you out in the heart of a vibrant local community (albeit admittedly somewhat downmarket)

Just has a nosey, as it popped up on my Facebook feed. Stacks of seats on General Sale for 20 (for Spurs v Burnley). Their ticket system is the one Watford had for Wembley so you can see the seats, and there are even some near the front of the top tier in some blocks :eek:

Seems a shame to only allocate 3k away tickets to Palace, yet there will likely be several thousand unsold in the home sections. I know 'it's only Spurs away', but lots of people would want to go just because rightly or wrongly its still Palace at Wembley

Whose great idea was it to move this to kick off at noon on a Sunday? :grrr:

I'm hoping to God that the West Ham v Liverpool game is moved so that we get the early Saturday evening kick off instead - sod trying to get to Wembley for a Sunday lunchtime.

So, from reading a bit in The Times yesterday it seems they do have some games with full capacity (but only 3k away fans)

They are expecting 70,000 for the Chelsea game soon...struggling to flog the other 20,000 due to restrictions put in place on buying a ticket

There game against Burnley is expected to have a higher attendance, due to not having the same ticket restrictions

Paywall on the Times article so read a similar version on another site.

Seems crazy to do this, as at the FA Cup Semi and Final last year, Spurs, Chelsea and Arsenal played each other and would have been allowed to have half the ground each.

Problem could be largely alleviated by giving away teams up to 9,000 seats at Wembley, to recognise that the ground itself is a special draw for many, which would be more in the spirit of the 10% which applies at the smaller Prem grounds.

Sounds like it is only Arsenal and Chelsea affected in this way though. Palace fans may well be able to organise themselves and buy in a home block if they so wish during a general sale
