Tottenham Hotspur Supporters Trust against season resuming behind closed doors

The Tottenham Hotspur Supporters Trust (THST) has expressed their concerns against the 2019/20 Premier League season being resumed behind closed doors (h/t Football.london).

With the coronavirus wreaking havoc, Premier League football was brought to a grinding halt last month. With still over 90 matches left to be played in the campaign, there have been efforts by the Premier League and other stakeholders to get things moving, with a June return being targeted (h/t Football.london).

Tottenham can qualify for Champions League if season is cancelled

Tottenham are currently eighth in the table

However, given the prevailing conditions across the globe, it is extremely unlikely that fans will be allowed into stadiums. Meaning the remaining matches will have to be played in empty stadiums (h/t Football.london).

THST though, are against this idea. They believe if it is not safe for fans to attend matches, then it is not safe for the matches to restart at this point (h/t Football.london).

A statement issued on the THST website read:

“Our current view is that if it is not safe to stage a game with fans, it is not safe to stage a game full stop.”

In the statement, the Tottenham Hotspur Supporters Trust further questioned if it was right to utilise resources such as testing kits in large scale to resume football, when they are in urgent need elsewhere.

This statement comes in complete contrast to the view shared by our manager Jose Mourinho. The Portuguese tactician iterated that with millions of fans watching on TV, it would almost be like a public service.

At the moment it is still very unclear whether Premier League will resume. The Dutch and French leagues have already been cancelled. And it will be interesting to see if the English top-flight follows the same route.
