Tottenham’s hopes of having 4,000 fans for the Everton game dashed by new Covid-19 regulations



Tottenham Hotspur’s hopes of having fans present in season opener dashed

As reported by the Daily Star, Tottenham Hotspur will not be able to have any fans present in the stadium for the club’s 2020/21 Premier League opener against Everton this weekend.

Tottenham were among the Premier League clubs that were hoping to open the doors to 4,000 supporters to be a part of the matches starting this weekend. (h/t Daily Star)

However, those ideas have now been shot down by the government, with Prime Minister Boris Johnson introducing new rules to stem the possible resurgence of the coronavirus pandemic. (h/t Daily Star)

No fans will be allowed into the stadium

As per the latest regulations, gatherings of more than six will be banned throughout the country, reducing it from the previously-allowed 30. This comes into place after the recent spike in Covid-19 cases. (h/t Daily Star)

Plans of allowing fans back into the stadiums starting from October have also taken a hit, as per the report.

This ought to come as a blow for not only Tottenham, but all clubs, given how dependent teams are on matchday revenues. A full season without supporters would cost Premier League clubs £700m in lost revenue. (h/t Daily Star)

Premier League chief executive Richard Masters remains hopeful that fans can be allowed into the stadiums from next month. He insisted that the league was ready and able to welcome supporters back into the stadia. (h/t Daily Star)

“We have to get back to fans inside stadia as quickly as possible. We’re ready, willing and able to open the turnstiles on October 1 if given permission to do so.”
