Tottenham Hotspur have urged supporters who are attending tomorrow night’s Champions League semi-final first leg against Ajax to wear some elements of white clothing to help create a sea of Lilywhite.

To further add to the atmosphere, the club also confirmed on their official site that they will also be bringing back the iconic ‘To Dare is to Do’ tifo which creates a fantastic view in the south stand ahead of kick-off when 17,500 supporters hold up plastic bags for 60 seconds prior to kick off to create the mosaic.

The visual helped to create a fantastic atmosphere for the quarter-final first leg against Manchester City and the club must be commended for bringing it back tomorrow night.

Spurs have traditionally worn all white in European competition since legendary former manager Bill Nicholson introduced the idea in 1961 which was inspired by his admiration of the Real Madrid side of the late 1950s.

The semi-final against Ajax is our biggest match in a generation and we urge all fans to sing their hearts out for the full 90 minutes to get behind the side as we look to take a step forward to securing a place in the final of Europe’s most prestigious cup competition in our history.

Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. I’d love to wear something white tomorrow but I couldn’t get a ticket despite getting up at 5:30 a.m. and getting to the corner pin ticket office at 7:45. I’m a member +
    Finding about thirty people in front of me I was reasonably confident of getting a ticket for the game- only to find that four guys from my turn they were ‘sold out’ and advised to return the next day to try again. The same thing happened for the opening day Palace game. All the other games have been OK
    After attending all the games at Wembley- including the Carabao Cup games – where I could have walked around the stadium and sat in the royal box I’m wondering where all these ‘fans’ have suddenly come from
    I know there are only a certain number of tickets available, but when the guy walked past us to open the door at 9:30 he must have seen there was over a 100 of us in the queue
    There must be a fairer way of distributing the tickets – but being number 30 in the row and being told they were sold out was a bit annoying to say the least
    So after all the corporate tickets complimentary tickets, season ticket holders have had theirs I realise that there are only about 1,000 or so tickets available to us plebs – but surely there must be a way people who actually go to the ground can get a ticket should be given a chance, I know about the online sales and I’ve seen the computers flashing like fruit machines as tickets go, but why can’t they hold back more of tickets for people who bother to go down to the ground
    A few suggestions
    A maximum of 2 tickets per person (some guys bring a list of about half a dozen member numbers and fanny about picking seats wasting valuable time as the computers are flashing)
    Once choosing an area (North stand, south stand ect they should just get a ticket for the nearest seat
    The club should hold back at least 200 tickets for the guys who go down to the corner pin (I see most of the same guys every time)
    Also people buying tickets should just buy their ticket, pay and get out, without asking stupid questions and ruining the chances for others
    Come on Spurs play the game
