Tottenham Hotspur keen to bring back 4000 fans for the season opener against Everton

According to the Telegraph, Tottenham Hotspur are exploring the possibility of fans returning to the stadium in the season opener against Everton.

Spurs have not had any fans inside the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium for months. The last time fans were in attendance was when Spurs fell to Wolverhampton Wanderers on March 1. 58,064 fans were in attendance that day.

With the season opener against Everton’s scheduled for next weekend, Tottenham are exploring the possibility of allowing 4,000 of the club’s highest-paying supporters into the ground.

According to the report, the club is waiting to see if they will be permitted to allow fans in. The club will get clarity on the issue early next week.

Spurs chairman Daniel Levy believes the club can comfortably accommodate 4,000 supporters. This includes some of the club’s most expensive seats where social distancing and other coronavirus regulations can be implemented.

The club has about 9,000 corporate or hospitality members. It is unclear how the club would select those who could attend the game. It remains to be seen if the fans places would be entitled to a refund if they are unable to attend the event.

A double-edged sword

The move will not be without its risks. By preferring the expensive seats, the club risks angering some sections of their fans. It remains to be seen if the seats are not made open to all of the season ticket holders via a ballot.

Levy believes the event can act as the perfect trial for getting fans back inside games. The Spurs chairman believes it will be easier to maintain social distancing among the aforementioned seats.

This will come as a big relief to Spurs, who have been hit hard by the financial impact of coronavirus. Whether the club will be permitted to allow fans remains to be seen.
