Tottenham Hotspur, like every other Premier League club, were asked to play behind closed doors for the final portion of the 2019/20 season.

In these strange times, crowds were replaced with soundboards from the popular video game FIFA20 and players were forced to create their own atmosphere and drive.

However, as lockdown continues in the UK, it looks as if the effects of COVID-19 are set to roll into the new 2020/21 campaign too.

Despite this, the government has provided an update on how many Spurs fans may be allowed back inside the stadium in the future.

When clubs are eventually given the green light to start selling tickets again, it is said that the capacity of each stadium will be capped at 30% (Telegraph).

The Tottenham Hotspur Stadium has an official capacity of 62,303, meaning that 30% of the ground would come to around 18,690 people.

While this would be a fraction of the normal number of Spurs shirts seen around the North London stadium, it would certainly be enough to generate an atmosphere again. However, it remains to be seen when the government officially give the go-ahead for a return.
