Tottenham Hotspur are said to have explored the possibility of allowing 4,000 of the club’s highest-paying fans into the stadium to watch next Sunday’s Premier League opener against Everton.
The Telegraph claim that Tottenham are awaiting a decision on the proposal and expect to hear back early next week.
Tottenham’s state of the art 62,303 capacity seater stadium officially opened its doors in April of last year with Spurs chairman Daniel Levy said to be convinced that the use of 4,000 of the club’s most premium seating areas would allow them to comply with social distancing guidelines.
It has yet to be revealed how the club would select the 4,000 supporters out of the 9,000 corporate and hospitality members on their books and would earn the club around £1.5million in revenue should they receive the green light.
Levy is also said to be targeting one of the opening Premier League matches to 31,000 supporters as a test event to further increase income.
