500 Tottenham residents to attend Beyonce's Renaissance World Tour London concerts

Updated: Jun 26, 2023




Tottenham football club has given out 500 free Beyonce concert tickets to the local community and businesses – with the grammy-award winning star performing across five nights this week.


This week, Tottenham Hotspurs has gifted 500 community tickets to residents living in N17 and N15 postcode areas, community groups, local schools and businesses. This comes as part of the club's community ticket scheme which was launched last year and since then the club has given out 11,000 community tickets to a variety of events.


Some events include football cup matches, Guns N Roses, Lady Gaga, rugby fixtures, world heavyweight championship boxing and Women’s Super League fixtures.


Spokesperson for Tottenham Hotspurs said: “Our community ticket scheme has provided thousands of residents, community organisations and school groups with the opportunity to see some of the world’s biggest pop stars and experience a range of world-class sporting events.”


Sister System, a Tottenham-based charity that supports and bridges the gap between care-affected girls and mainstream society, were bestowed ten community tickets by Haringey council on behalf of Spurs.


Okela Douglas, founder and director of Sister System, said: “Our partnership with Spurs community ticket scheme has enabled us to provide ten of these phenomenal young women who live in Tottenham the opportunity to be a part of what will be one of the most epic concerts to come to their 'endz'.


This partnership really does demonstrate that the ecosystem of services providing programmes and initiatives for the young people across the borough empowers them to be a part of their community and wider society. Together we are!”

Similarly, Daughters United, a local community organisation that brings together women across different generations to create a safer and more connected community, was given six community tickets by Spurs.


Caroline and Emily Oduro, founders of Daughters United, said: “It was an amazing and huge surprise for us to receive these tickets and to have Beyonce in our own backyard has been really uplifting and inspiring for the community.”


“Spurs are one of the few football clubs that has been able to do something like this which is great for the community and the local traders.”


Approximately 50,000 people will attend Beyonce concerts each night – almost 250,000 people in total, more than double the population of the Tottenham residents.


The club is the only stadium in the world where Beyonce will be spending more than one night – as the grammy-award winning star will be performing five shows at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium this week.
