According to talkSPORT, it is likely that a limited number of fans will be allowed to attend the Carabao Cup final at Wembley next month.

After Tottenham’s elimination from the Europa League, the final against Manchester City represents Spurs’ only hope of ending the season with silverware and breaking the club’s 13-year trophy drought. 

The final was pushed back to April 25 so that a limited number of fans may have the chance to attend the match.

It was previously reported that the game was likely to be played behind closed doors with the game coming too early for fans to get the green light from the government to attend, even in a limited capacity.

However, The Daily Mail confirmed earlier this week that the EFL was pushing for the match to be included in a schedule of test events for the return of supporters. 

According to talkSPORT, the government has now given the green light for 8000 supporters to attend the final at Wembley. 

One hurdle still to overcome is attendees having to take Rapid Lateral Flow coronavirus tests upon entry and departure from the stadium.

It has been revealed that the number of tickets would be split between Spurs fans, Man City fans, local residents and NHS staff.

Spurs Web Opinion 

This is potentially a big boost to Spurs as it throws an unknown variable into the mix as the players will have to re-adapt to having fans back after so long. I back the Tottenham contingent (even if it is just 2000 or 3000) to make a lot of noise and comfortably out-sing the City fans as the final means a lot more to us than it does to City.
