Tottenham Hotspur release official statement after Manchester City tie postponed by Premier League

Tottenham Hotspur have released an official statement to relay Premier League’s decision to postpone this weekend’s fixtures.

Earlier today, a statement by the UK Government passed the buck to the organisers with regards to the potential postponement of sporting events in the country. Now, it has been confirmed by the PL that this weekend’s fixtures are postponed.

This includes Tottenham’s Premier League tie against Manchester City which was scheduled to take place at the Etihad on Saturday, September 10. There is no news of the revised dates as of now.

An excerpt from Spurs’ official statement reads:

“As the nation mourns the death of Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II, the Premier League, FA and EFL have today confirmed that matches will be postponed this weekend as a mark of respect.”

“Our Men’s Premier League away match at Manchester City and our home Barclays Women’s Super League match against Manchester United have both been postponed and will be rescheduled – rearranged dates will be confirmed in due course.”

It raises the question of what happens with fans that have booked hotels, tickets, and transportation for the upcoming games. It remains to be seen if they will be financially compensated to a reasonable extent.

Common sense dictates that the tickets they purchased for tomorrow’s games are valid for the rescheduled match as well – whenever that may be. The statement concluded:

“Ticket holders for both matches will be contacted directly with further information – we thank our fans for their understanding on this matter. The thoughts of everyone at the Club remain with members of the Royal Family at this sad time.”

As of now, Spurs are now scheduled to take on Sporting CP in Lisbon on Tuesday night in the UEFA Champions League (September 13). This game will be followed by a Premier League tie against Leicester City on September 17 in north London.

It remains to be seen if the game against the Foxes will be affected as that match will also fall under the 10-day mourning day after Queen Elizabeth II’s death on September 8.

Football will then resume after an international break, where Spurs will take on current league leaders Arsenal on October 1 at the Emirates.
