Tottenham Hotspur have been handed a boost ahead of their Europa Conference League group stage campaign, with UEFA now set to announce the return of away fans, according to The Daily Mail.
Tottenham sealed their passage through to the group stage of the Conference League after overcoming Portuguese side Pacos De Ferriera 3-1 on aggregate in the play-off last month.
Spurs have been drawn into a group with Rennes from Ligue 1, Vitesse from the Eredivisie and Slovenian side NS Mura.
However, the Lilywhites faced the prospect of playing in front of no away fans in the competition this season as UEFA currently have a blanket ban on fans travelling to away venues in Europe.
The Mail have now reported that a leading fan group, Football Supporters Europe (FSE), have confirmed visiting fans will now be allowed to attend matches in time for the first round of European club fixtures next week.
The group expect UEFA to remove their ban on travelling supporters from next week but they did warn that local restrictions and travel requirement might still apply depending on the country/region one is travelling to.
🚨 CONFIRMED: Return of away fans at UEFA club competitions.
✅ FSE can confirm that away fans will be permitted to attend European club competitions matches from next week.

Spurs Web Opinion
While the Conference League is not where we want to be, looking at the teams in it, there could still be some pretty fun away days for fans. So, this is very good news and as always, I expect a sizable away contingent to follow the side around Europe, particularly once we get to the knockout stages.
