My daughter says she’s going to the stadium on 29th May for the Guns and Roses concert. £162 for her ticket alone. WTF how much money will the club make???
Whilst the club gets a percentage or fixed fee for the use of the stadium, the prices of the tickets are usually determined by the producers of stage shows, not the club

My guesstimate for the hire fee would be around the £1m mark. The NFL agreement was we kept all food/drink if this is the same you can probably add another £1m on at least. £4-5m over the 2 nights not bad more than Arsenal will be making that weekend 😀

I’m making my first trip to the new stadium for the Wolves game which has been moved to Sunday 1 March. I’m coming into London from the north and will need to get back to Kings Cross. How quickly does the stadium empty / is there lots of congestion on the tube so I can plan what train I can get from Kings Cross.

Now other organisations have seen how much we make from food and drink I wonder how easy it’s going to be to keep that going forward.

Forget the train and the tube, the queues are immense. You can easily wait 30-40 minutes to get into Seven Sisters station.

Walk down past Bruce Grove and take a 259 bus to Kings Cross. It's about a 15 minute hike, but it's closer than Seven Sisters station. Be aware that the southbound 259 is diverted until Bruce Grove station so it won't call at any of the stops north of there. And the buses don't show on the TfL website/app, because they're out of range on the diversion. The upside is that, because of the diversion, there's always room on the bus at the first stop south of Bruce Grove.

We live near Kings Cross and that's how we usually get to and from the stadium.

Not in my experience unless you count the walk (15-20 mins, though I am a fast walker). There is sometimes a queue on the west side of the high street but it moves quite quickly, you can be in the tube station within 10 minutes.

I've only done the WHL queue a couple of times since the stadium opened and again it moves quickly but the last time I went that way, the train was quite slow arriving.

Just rereading this thread and it reminded me of something that happened on Saturday, a youg family, mum dad and a little boy had walked down to Northumberland park and were worried about the crowd queing to get into the station and as we got to the bottom of Park Lane where the buses terminate there was a bus to Kings Cross which surprised them and pleased them in equal measure and they jumped straight on. So to summarise you can get that bus at Northumberland park too which might be a bit closer.

Was looking for the toilet last night during the game, noticed the nearest one was the disabled toilets. No queue, and no one was using it. Steward wouldn't let me use it, disabled only. Eh? I always thought they were normal toilets which are just accessible so disabled people can use it with ease. When I asked him, he seemed to think it was the law, but the sign stated men, female, and disabled. I pointed this out and he didn't back down. :LOL: Couldn't be bothered to argue with him, seemed to be on some sort of power trip. I swear, I've yet to have a positive interaction with a steward. Always so grumpy and rude. :unsure:

Don't know about your toilet issue...but on the point of grumpy and rude stewards I couldn't disagree more

I find the vast majority of the new stewards at Tottenham nothing but pleasant and polite.

As long as it wasn't the 476. It goes to Kings Cross, but to say it takes the "scenic route" would be an understatement.

Anyone know whether the mess at Saracens is going to have much of a knock on affect on us? They announced a 'lucrative' five year contract to play their big 'Showdown' rugby union games at NWHL last year, but are now being relegated due to their financial irregularities. Be nice if our plans went smoothly for once, hey?!!
