Tottenham Supporters Trust plan protest for final home game of the season
According to news from Evening Standard, Tottenham Supporters Trust are planning a protest for the final home game of this season. The protest will be against the club ownership in light of the recent events of the European Super League.
The Tottenham Hotspur Supporters’ Trust (THST) held a meeting over video call to vote for the motion to call for the resignation of the executive board members. They want the owners, ENIC, to include them in the appointment of new board members.
Tottenham were among the 12 founder clubs who were a part of the ESL – a closed league of the top European sides to generate more revenue. However, the proposal garnered so much backlash that the English clubs started withdrawing and other clubs also followed suit.
The whole idea was shelved within two days. However, the fans have continued to speak out given how the owners jumped on the ESL ship without considering the fans.
THST provided a statement on the same.
“We know there is growing supporter anger with the current Club Board and Owners. We understand that. We need to focus that anger. We understand the calls for ‘ENIC Out’. But simply calling for the Board and Owners to resign or sell without influencing what comes next achieves very little in the long term. THST has said for many years that the law must be changed to give fans more power in how our clubs are run.”
The group wants to work with the owners in appointing new board members.
“Now the UK government has launched a review to do just that. We are working closely with them to develop a model that will deliver this across the game, and we are drawing up practical measures that can be implemented at our Club. Our offer to the current THFC owners to work together on this remains open.”
