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?!!
I would imagine that instead of playing a league game they'll invite a team from SA, Australia etc over for a hyped up friendly game

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.
Funnily enough I'm making my first trip to the new stadium for that game too. I'm coming over fro the west of Ireland and will be going with my son. We have got seats in the 1882 section and intend to get there early and leave late. It helps that we have a meal and two pints included in the cost of the seats, but they are £99 each, so he tells me!

Anyone else noticed and not a fan of the new seat selector on the website when you book tickets via your phone ? I find it crashes when you look at certain blocks

Stadium empties quickly enough but there are long queues at the two nearest railway stations WHL & NP , there is congestion on the tube especially at Seven Sisters.
Your best bet is too look up an online map of Tottenham for the route and walk to Tottenham Hale Station it's about a mile and half so approx. 25 minute walk, then from Tottenham Hale it's about 10 minutes to Kings X on Victoria Line

I have found that it’s is vastly improved - along with the queuing system

some info from n17_bishop on ssc, for those who want to calculate revenue

Some info that may be of interest to some. I cant elaborate any further for obvious reasons but,

Avg visitor spend per head so far since opening:
Football: £8
NFL: £24

Next weeks game vs Southampton with see use exceed the 2 million visitor mark after 34 events.

6 more summer events to be announced very soon in addition to 2 Gun's n Rose's and 1 Capital Summer ball nights (9 total).

Football: £8 average spend per head seems low?
Probably for GA only. It's probably split between people who spend £0 and then those that are happy to stay and buy a few pints and food at roughly £20-£30

At least that rules out me spending £200 on tickets for wife and daughter then.
Picked them up at Wembley last year, not arsing around making my way down to the stadium to do the same this summer.

I thought about £10 tbh. For instance I don’t bother much at half time anymore because it just takes so long to get a drink.
I have started ordering a half-pint at half-time, because by the time I get my hands on it, I can't enjoy a whole pint before play restarts.

Yeah 8 ain't bad. Especially if it is only GA. Including premium then maybe not as impressive, but I'm not sure how they'd calculate it.
£16m just in concessions in less than a season isn't bad going, no wonder we are trying so hard to get all these FA Cup replays at our ground. :p

Out of interest did anyone receive the email about applying for a season ticket this week. Given the increase in allocation? The deadline was Wednesday to apply - I’m dying to get one and wonder when they will contact people to inform.

Be shocked if it’s £8. I did a twitter poll with about 1.5k votes and it was definitely over £10 I’d actually say closer to £15.

Is there a difference in price for PL and NFL tickets?

Would be interested to know if NFL is cheaper and results in bigger spend while there.
But they also have the benifit of more breaks and longer games(?) , so more people have the chance to get to bars ect.
