Inews have revealed that the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium has seen well below 50,000 fans since their win over Norwich at the start of December.
Tottenham have been quite unlucky with the timing of the opening of their 62,850-capacity venue, with the Covid-19 pandemic hitting less than a year later.
As a result, despite the stadium being opened almost three years ago, this is set to be the first full season where a capacity crowd is allowed in the ground for the entirety of the campaign.
However, Inews have revealed that there has been a huge drop off in the attendance figures at Spurs’ home ground for the last month and a half.
Here are the attendance figures for Tottenham’s home games this season as released by the outlet:
Tottenham’s attendances 2021-22:
Tottenham 1-0 Manchester City – 58,262
Tottenham 3-0 Pacos de Ferreira – 30,215
Tottenham 1-0 Watford – 57,672
Tottenham 0-3 Chelsea – 60,059
Tottenham 5-1 NS Mura – 25,121
Tottenham 2-1 Aston Villa – 53,076
Tottenham 0-3 Manchester United – 60,356
Tottenham 3-2 Vitesse – 36,312
Tottenham 2-1 Leeds – 58,989
Tottenham 2-0 Brentford – 54,202
Tottenham 3-0 Norwich – 57,088
Tottenham 2-2 Liverpool – 45,421

Tottenham 3-0 Crystal Palace – 40,539
Tottenham 3-1 Morecambe – 40,310
Tottenham 0-1 Chelsea – 45,603
The figures not only show that Tottenham have not had a capacity crowd at the stadium this season but also that there has been a huge drop off since the start of December.

The lower attendances are likely due to a multitude of reasons but one cannot discount the impact of having so many games called off through December.
For example, it is worth remembering that the games against Liverpool and Crystal Palace were doubtful to go ahead until pretty late on.
It is also possible that fears over Omicron and the requirement of proof of vaccination likely contributed to some staying away.
