Tottenham have revealed they will create a tifo display ahead of kick-off before tomorrow night’s vital north London derby clash against Arsenal. 

Both teams have plenty at stake with one final spot in next season’s Champions League up for grabs, with Antonio Conte’s fifth-placed needing a win to keep their hopes alive. 

But Arsenal could clinch qualification themselves on the night with three points enough to put Spurs out of reach as the campaign nears its conclusion. 

And with Spurs still looking to chase down the Gunners, the club has unveiled its plans to ramp up the atmosphere at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium even more with a tifo display shortly before kick-off. 

The club has now informed fans in the south stand to take their seats in good time ahead of the encounter to create a display with the words ‘Dare, Dream, Do’ to greet the players as they walk out onto the turf in N17. 

Am email sent to season ticket holders in the 17,500-seater stand read (via Football.London): “Tomorrow night promises to be a momentous occasion – the first Men’s North London derby held to a full capacity in our new stadium, with so much at stake. 

“The atmosphere will be like nothing we have experienced at the stadium before and this is something we know our players will thrive on in their bid to keep our ambitions of a top four finish alive.

“To help create a scene that provides further inspiration to our players and is befitting of the occasion, we need your help to transform our iconic South Stand with a tifo that displays the words ‘Dare, Dream, Do’ – a message that encapsulates the emotions we will all be feeling ahead of kick-off.

“On arrival tomorrow night, you will find a blue or white bag placed on your seat, that when raised will create the tifo display. The bags are 100% recyclable and can be reused or kept as a souvenir from the night.

“We ask you to raise your bag for a total of approximately 60 seconds from the moment the teams begin to emerge from the tunnel (approximately 19:40) – please aim to arrive at your seat in good time. Let’s get fully behind the team tomorrow and make this a night that none of us will ever forget. COYS!”

Spurs Web Opinion 

Much like the display ahead of the club’s Champions League quarter-final against Manchester City in 2019, the scenes and atmosphere in that huge stand should be amazing right before kick-off. 

Hopefully all that energy and effort will give the players an extra boost of support ahead of a crucial fixture in terms of how the season could end.
