Tottenham have revealed a ‘virtual mascot’ concept with club partner Kumho Tyres as North Londonders club prepare for the restart of the Premier League next week (THFC).
As a result of the coronavirus pandemic, football games will take place behind closed doors meaning there will be no option for junior mascots to experience the prospect of a match day.
However, to combat this, Spurs have created a ‘virtual mascot’ programme which will mean selected junior members will get the chance to be a part of the matchday experience despite the obvious restrictions.
The club announced the junior members who had been scheduled as mascots for the remaining home games will participate in the new concept.
The mascots will be featured in the matchday programmes and on a new matchday social media post and whilst also hearing names announced in the pre-match broadcast.
In addition, as the teams walk out the mascots will have their photo shown on the huge video screens in all four corners of the stadiumfor the players to see.

Obviously, it won’t be the same. However, it is good to see the club have considered the smaller details such as this to keep the interaction with the fans intact. It would be good of the club to also rearrange the dates for those mascots to get first priority when football returns to the fans too.
