Daniel Levy proposes test event that will see 31000 fans at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium

According to The Guardian, Tottenham Hotspur chairman Daniel Levy is keen to restore a semblance of normalcy amid the coronavirus pandemic.

Levy is planning a test event at our home stadium that will see up to 31,000 fans in attendance. This is half the capacity of the stadium.

Spurs have not had any fans inside the brand new stadium for months and have had to see out the last season in front of empty crowds. In fact, the last time fans were in attendance was when Spurs fell to Wolverhampton Wanderers on March 1. 58,064 fans were present that day.

At the very least, he wants to look into the idea with support from the government. Levy also has several other ideas to make the stadium safe. He has previously backed the exploration of scientific and technological solutions including digital health passports and smartphone applications. (h/t The Guardian)

With the 2019/20 season nearing, clubs are taking measures to ensure fans can once again be a part of the matchday.

The test event at the Amex was successful and augurs well for the future. Keeping in line with the necessary guidelines, fans were separated by several seats and were asked to wear masks.
