It was announced earlier this week that thousands of Tottenham fans could be able to attend the upcoming North London Derby against Arsenal.

The match is due to be held at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in December, with the Daily Mail reporting that supporters may be able to return in a reduced capacity from December 2.

Every single Premier League match has been played behind closed doors since the first UK lockdown back in March.

However, Spurs and Daniel Levy have been pushing to allow fans back in their modern stadium in a reduced capacity for some time now.

As per the Daily Mail report, the Government has revealed that supporters can return to stadia in the near future, with the number to be determined by a tier system.

Tier 1 areas will be allowed 4,000 fans, Tier 2 areas can welcome 2,000 fans, and Tier 3 areas will continue behind closed doors.

Jose Mourinho has claimed that the situation is not ideal for clubs in terms of making money, but it is a step towards the desired goal.

He said (Football London): “First of all we have to see what tier London is. Looking at it from an economical point of view I don’t think it’s any good to clubs but for the fans, for their happiness and best of all it’s probably the start of it and progressively we can go in the way of a situation closer to what we wanted.”
