The Evening Standard reports that around 200 lucky Spurs fans are set to be among the first to return to Tottenham Hotspur Stadium this evening after the pandemic led to the suspension of football back in March.
The club will host a socially-distanced screening of this evening’s match against Burnley for around 200 executive members in the West Stand hospitality areas.
The event will be used by Tottenham to test their Covid-secure protocols, including a new digital ticketing system, as they plan to pave the way for the return of fans to the stadium.
The tickets for the event were priced at £39 per person and sold at a first-come-first-served basis.
Jose Mourinho admitted earlier in the week that he misses having Spurs fans at the ground and is keen for them to return so that they can enjoy the attacking football on show (Football.London).
Tottenham have now confirmed that they are working hard behind the scenes to allow fans back in as soon as possible.
A statement from the club read: “The club is determined to do everything in its power to help fans get back in our stadiums as soon as possible.
“As such, we will be using this event as an opportunity to test a number of Covid compliant protocols we plan to use for future matchdays.”
