          Supporters attending the Premier League clash between Spurs and Chelsea on 19 September are being urged to travel to the stadium via bicycle or public transport and eat only vegan food. 

          The two London clubs are working alongside broadcaster Sky to try and make the make the game the world's first 'net zero' carbon fixture at elite level.

          The clubs themselves will be cutting their emissions around the match and fans are encouraged to take steps to reduce their own carbon footprints. 

          As part of the initiative, both sets of players will be driven to and from the stadium in coaches powered by biofuel, and food outlets inside the stadium will offer a wide array of plant-based food options.

          'Net zero' is achieved when direct emissions related to the game (for example, fan and employee travel, energy use of the stadium, production of food and drink) are minimised and the remainder is 'offset' through natural projects.

          Earlier this year, Tottenham were named the top flight's greenest club after a survey gauging the sustainability of all 20 Premier League clubs.
