Tottenham Hotspur permit the use of home stadium to fight coronavirus

The coronavirus pandemic is proving to be a tough nut to crack. Medical professionals all over the world are busy fighting its spread with limited facilities.

Tottenham Hotspur are doing their bit to contribute to the fight. The latest act by the club is to allow their stadium to be used in order to support the vulnerable individuals affected by the coronavirus pandemic, according to the Independent.

The club has held discussions with Haringey Council, the Greater London Authority and the NHS about making use of their home ground. The 62000-seater is considered to be one of the best stadiums in operation today.

Speaking on the decision, Spurs chairman Daniel Levy has stressed on the importance to help a community in need. He has refused to play down the issue at hand and is not taking things for granted.

“As a club, we have always been clear about our commitment to the wider community”

The first step involves converting the car park, built beneath the stadium, into a storage base for food. This is being done by the London Food Alliance – a new scheme set up to ensure food supplies for the most vulnerable people within the capital during the COVID-19 pandemic.

It has been set up by the Felix Project, FareShare and City Harvest. They pick up nutritious surplus food from suppliers and deliver it in bulk to community hubs in each London borough. This surplus food is then divided into parcels and delivered to the doorsteps of vulnerable Londoners.

The club has already worked with the Felix Project when they donated surplus food and drink intended for use at the postponed fixture against Manchester United earlier this month.

Last week, the Tottenham Hotspur Hotspur stadium joined up with other iconic venues across London in turning blue as a tribute to the NHS. Players and staff too have been doing their part in giving back to the community.

Jose Mourinho has been seen volunteering at Age UK to help the vulnerable in the Enfield Area while Toby Alderweireld has supplied tablets to help the isolated stay in touch with their loved ones.
