Tottenham Hotspur fans urge club to extend season ticket renewal window after unpopular early deadline

According to the Evening Standard, Tottenham Hotspur supporters’ groups have urged the club to extend their deadline on renewing the season ticket by writing to officials to push the date until May 31.

This season has been a turbulent one for Spurs fans, seeing their team go through two managers and endure a wildly inconsistent run in which they alternate between wins and losses across multiple competitions.

The groups have written to the club saying that the current date set for renewing season tickets seems to suggest that the Lilywhites portray a lack of confidence in the manager’s future and their chances of playing in the Champions League next season.

“In the view of many, the Club is asking fans to commit to next season before they know what competitions we are in, who the manager is or who will be in the team. You may say there is never a guarantee of any of this, but the Club’s decision is being widely seen as a signal that it is not confident the answers to these questions will be positive.”

Spurs are set to endure yet another season without silverware, with their last trophy coming in 2008 when the side won the League Cup. Meanwhile, Nuno Espirito Santo was sacked midway through the season, and Antonio Conte has been brought in to manage the club.

“Worrying disregard”

The team’s Premier League prospects are not looking very bright either, with the side sitting seventh in the table and in danger of missing a Champions League qualification spot by the end of the season.

The supporters’ groups have set out in their letter that the club has shown a worrying disregard for the economic situation of their fans, only allowing a 2-day period to renew their season tickets.

“Therefore, to only allow potentially a ‘2 pay-day’ period in which to pay for Season Tickets shows a worrying disregard for the economic realities facing many of your customers.”

Supporters' groups have hit out at Tottenham Hotspur for putting economic duress on their fans.

In England, football is a sport as well as a passion for the common, working middle-class. It is their escape from their lifestyle and mundane work life, with fans thronging the stadium to get away from it all for ninety minutes of footballing action.

With COVID dominating the world for two years and livelihoods being affected, it has not been an easy time for supporters. While some may have lost lives, others have suffered economic duress due to the pandemic.

At a time like this, Tottenham’s decision to only have a two-day window to renew existing season tickets comes as a blow to these fans. The game is nothing without the supporters, and if the club is putting added pressure on their fans to attend home games, then the connection between the club and fans is lost.

Hopefully, club officials look into this matter raised by supporters’ groups and take appropriate action. As stated in the letter, their intentions to renew season tickets before the end of the current season seems to imply a lack of faith in Conte and his ability to lead Spurs to a top-four spot by the summer.
