Report reveals why Spurs may be allowed to have bigger crowds than some rivals

The Daily Mail have revealed that Tottenham Hotspur may be allowed to welcome back more fans than many of their Premier League rivals when the UK government eventually gives the green light to do so.

It was previously reported that sporting venues would be able to welcome back spectators on a reduced capacity from October, if the test events go according to plan.

The Sun even revealed recently that Tottenham’s clash against Manchester United at Old Trafford on October 3 could well be the first Premier League game in which fans are allowed to return.

However, The Mail have now claimed that not all clubs will be allowed a similar number of fans at their stadiums.

It is reported that older stadiums, particularly those with narrow concourses and toilet areas, like Old Trafford and Goodison Park, could be allowed only around 20 per cent of capacity.

Meanwhile, stadiums with larger areas like the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium and the Etihad may be allowed a limit of 30 per cent.

Rather than allowing a blanket percentage of capacity for all grounds, it is reported that all stadiums will be dealt with individually.

I do not think having a few thousand more fans will be a major advantage. Given that fans will be socially distanced and will be discouraged from signing or cheering, the atmosphere is not going to be like anything that we are used to. Hopefully, it does not take too long before we see stadiums packed to capacity again.
