Tottenham Hotspur are set to suffer a significant financial blow with the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium will not be hosting NFL games in North London during 2020, according to the Daily Mail.
Football Insider reported that Tottenham are likely to be one of the worst-hit clubs in the Premier League if it is decided that the next season will be played behind closed doors.
The report explained how Spurs along with Manchester United and Arsenal generate the highest matchday income and could be hit much worse than most clubs, with the Lilywhites reportedly set to lose out on a whopping £100 million in revenue.
It appears Tottenham’s misery won’t end there with The Daily Mail reporting that the club’s new stadium looks set to miss out on hosting two NFL games, which could cost the club in excess of £4 million.
The club has a 10-year agreement with the NFL to host two matches per season but given the uncertainty surrounding international travel and mass events due to the coronavirus pandemic, it is said that the entire American Football season is likely to be completed in the United States.
Tottenham will soon receive confirmation of this as the fixtures for the NFL season are set to be released on the 9th of May.

As many people have pointed out, we are in a much more precarious position than many other clubs due to the substantial debt we have on our stadium. If Daniel Levy hadn’t run a tight ship in terms of wages, we would have been in even worse shape.
I expect a significant portion of next season to be played behind closed doors which will mean that we will take a massive financial hit. This is one of the reasons we are unlikely to spend much money this summer.
