The spurs respect

We all have a responsibility to act as ambassadors of Tottenham Hotspur Football Club and to act as considerate visitors to those who live and work in the cities and countries we visit. Please respect local customs and traditions by not placing flags or banners on local statues or monuments.

We recognize that most fans want to watch a football match and not listen to abusive or indecent talk in the stands. Discriminatory behavior that includes shouting, chanting or actions such as racist, bigoted, homophobic, sexist or anti-disability behavior is unacceptable.

If you witness incidents like these, please notify a steward immediately.

The Club reserves the right to indefinitely ban supporters found guilty of using discriminatory language.
