Fans attending the AB Sundecks 1895 and Betfred Challenge Cup Finals on Saturday between Featherstone Rovers and Leigh Centurions (kick-off 12pm) and Wigan Warriors and Huddersfield Giants (kick-off 3pm) should take note of travel information following.

We recommend that supporters familiarize themselves with Safer travel guide from Transport for Londonwhich includes a recommendation to wear a face covering when using the network.

Tottenham Hotspur Stadium

The Tottenham Hotspur Stadium is very accessible by public transport:

– It is served by four stations (White Hart Lane, Northumberland Park, Tottenham Hale and Seven Sisters) giving access to London Overground, London Underground, Greater Anglia services and many TfL buses.
– Free high-capacity shuttle services to and from the Piccadilly line at Wood Green and Greater Northern services at Alexandra Palace link the stadium to other stations and services.

There is ample bicycle parking around the stadium. Walking routes to and from the stadium to train stations and coach parks are all clearly marked. Stewards will also be present to answer all your questions.

Wherever the fans are from, especially if they have never been to the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium before, we recommend using this detailed travel advice and the information below to plan their trip in advance.

Victoria Line

Fans arriving in London via national rail services to Euston or King’s Cross stations are advised to use the Victoria Line to travel to Tottenham. Services will run every two to three minutes with journey times of 10 minutes to Seven Sisters station and 12 minutes to Tottenham Hale station.

Fans using the Victoria line have the following options for making their journey to the stadium:

– Meet at Tottenham Hale and change onto the Greater Anglia rail service to Northumberland Park, which is one stop from Tottenham Hale and a short walk from the stadium. Services will run every six minutes.
– Meet at Seven Sisters and change to the London Overground service to White Hart Lane station which is closer to the stadium than Northumberland Park. Services will run every 15 minutes. A diversion will be put in place for the Seven Sisters interchange to avoid congestion on the platforms which can add a delay of 15 minutes.
– Travel to Seven Sisters and use TfL bus services to the stadium. Services will run every one to two minutes. Buses will stop outside the stadium until the road closure comes into effect at 1pm, at which time supporters can walk the remaining distance with the stadium visible from Tottenham High Road.
– Meet at Tottenham Hale or Seven Sisters and walk to the stadium. Tottenham Hale is a 25 minute walk away and Seven Sisters a 30 minute walk.

Elisabeth line

The new line’s initial service began on 24 May with a direct service from Paddington station to Abbey Wood station in south-east London via Canary Wharf and Liverpool Street stations.

Supporters arriving in London via Paddington Station are advised to use the Elizabeth Line service to Liverpool Street and take the first available train to Northumberland Park or White Hart Lane stations.
