Some Spurs fans fume at Daniel Levy for charging to watch pre-season friendlies

Some Spurs fans on social media have been left fuming by the club’s decision to charge fans if they want to stream their pre-season friendlies live through the official website.

Tottenham confirmed on Thursday that they will be playing three pre-season friendlies against EFL clubs ahead of the 2020/21 campaign.

With the players set to return to pre-season training on Monday, they will take on League One side Ipswich Town in their first preseason friendly on 22 August.

Jose Mourinho’s men will then play Championship outfits Reading and Birmingham City on successive days the following weekend (28 and 29 August).

The club confirmed that the friendly matches can be streamed live through the club’s official website.

However, they revealed those who are not One Hotspur members or season ticket holders will have to pay a one-off fee of £20, or at the early-bird discounted price of £15 if ordered before 5 pm on Monday 17 August, if they want to watch the matches live.

This did not sit well with some Spurs fans who accused the club and chairman Daniel Levy of trying to rip them off.

Spurs Web Opinion

I do not believe there is anything wrong with this move, particularly considering that season ticket holders and One Hotspur members will be able to stream the match for free. Some Spurs fans just take any excuse they can to have a go at Daniel Levy.
