It’s an extremely exciting time to be a Tottenham fan at the moment, given that we are a little over 24 hours away from the biggest game in the club’s history.
The club now stands one step from being crowned Europeans Champions for the first time, with only Liverpool standing between them and their dream.
Not wanting to miss the historic match, Spurs fans are flocking to Madrid by the thousands. UEFA have only allocated 16,613 tickets to each set of fans, and thus many who travel to the Spanish capital won’t be able to make it into the Wanda Metropolitano Stadium (BBC).
However, it now looks of hundreds of Spurs fans could be in a race against time to get in before kick off, as the Daily Mail report that one of Thomas Cook’s chartered flights will not land in Madrid until 4:30 pm on Saturday.
The company has already faced criticism when it emerged that 400 fans who paid £559 each for a morning flight, would not be leaving Stansted Airport until 1:30 pm.
The report claims that Thomas Cook is furious with Madrid airport for failing to hold slots for the official carriers.
Thomas Cook said (Daily Mail): “We’ve been working closely with Stansted and Madrid Airports, air traffic control and government transport authorities to finalise flight times during an exceptionally busy day for Madrid airport.
“Five of our six flights will land at least six hours before kick-off so supporters will have plenty of time to soak up the atmosphere and head to the stadium. We’re working to bring forward the 6th flight and we’ll update fans as soon as we can.”

It really would be a massive shame if some Spurs fans miss the start of the game due to this issue. The feeling of watching the team walk out for the final, and hearing the Champions League anthem will be incredibly special, particularly given the emotional journey Spurs have had to the final.
