Some Tottenham Hotspur fans have given their support to the ‘Charity not PPV’ campaign, which calls for fans to donate £14.95 to their local foodbanks rather than to spend that amount on pay-per-view matches.

All Premier League clubs agreed on the PPV scheme as a solution to address their cash-flow worries until fans are allowed back in the stadia.

According to the scheme, fans will have to pay £14.95 per match to watch the games which have not been selected for broadcast.

With Tottenham’s upcoming Premier League game against Brighton falling under that category, some Spurs fans have decided to follow Newcastle fans’ lead by donating to a food bank instead.

According to The Evening Standard, Newcastle fans donated £20,000 to a food bank last weekend instead of paying to watch the 4-1 defeat to Manchester United.

The Tottenham Hotspur Supporters Trust revealed on social media several members contacted them about donating to a local food bank.

The popular Tottenham podcast, The Fighting Cock also encouraged Spurs fans to do the same and provided a link where fans can donate to the Tottenham Foodbank.

The initiative is aiming to raise £100,000 in total for the Tottenham Foodbank and the response from Spurs fans has been fantastic, with £75,279 already being raised as of Thursday morning.
