Tottenham Hotspur’s FA Cup tie vs Marine to be played with no fans

As reported by Football.london, Tottenham Hotspur’s FA Cup third-round fixture away against lower league side Marine in January will now be played behind closed doors.

Tottenham Hotspur are scheduled to play Marine AFC on January 10 at Rossett Park in the third round of the FA Cup. With their stadium falling in the Liverpool City Region, which was earlier placed in Tier 2, 500 fans were permitted to attend the fixture, which would have been a huge occasion for the minnows.

However, those hopes have been dashed now, with the region being moved to Tier 3 after a recent surge in positive coronavirus cases. This has meant that there will be no fans allowed into the stadium for the event.

“Following today’s Government announcement moving the Liverpool City Region into Tier 3, the club have had confirmation that the Emirates FA Cup Third Round tie v Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday 10th January (5 pm) will be behind closed doors.

“This is a huge disappointment for all involved with the club but safety must always be paramount. A further announcement will be made as soon as possible regarding refunds for tickets already purchased.”

The recent increase in cases of coronavirus has led to games being cancelled across divisions. In fact, Tottenham’s game against Fulham was called off on Wednesday due to a virus outbreak in the Cottagers’ squad.

Given the importance of the event for Marine, it would have been nice to have fans present at the stadium. However, as the club said in its statement, safety has to be the priority in these challenging times.
