Representatives of THST attended a routine meeting at the Metropolitan Police’s Lambeth Headquarters on Wednesday evening ahead of Sunday's FA Cup Quarter Final with Millwall. Representatives from Millwall supporter groups, Tottenham Hotspur Football Club, British Transport Police and the Football Supporters’ Federation were also present.
The police presence on the day will be visible. The police approach will be to look to engage with supporters and take positive action if required. Fans without tickets are advised not to travel to the game.
Full information on transport will be issued by both Clubs ahead of the match, and it was noted that a section of the London Overground, along with Northumberland Park station, will be closed. Fans are advised to check their routes in advance.
Pubs in and around Tottenham will be operating with normal licencing hours. Most pubs have decided to open to home fans only for this fixture, including the Antwerp Arms and the Irish Centre.
The following pubs around Liverpool Street have elected to close on Sunday:
- Hamilton Hall
- Kings Arms
- Railway Tavern
- Red Lion
Fans with tickets for this fixture are reminded to bring their correct membership cards with them and be prepared for enhanced checks at the turnstiles. Dogs will also form part of the searching regime on the day.
In addition to normal road closures, home supporters leaving the south side of the stadium after the match will be diverted along Bromley Road, rejoining the High Road just after the No.8 pub (formerly the Bell and Hare).
