Tottenham Hotspur have decided to postponed season-ticket renewals for next season after Premier League football was suspended due to the spread of the coronavirus.
With UK authorities, as well as governments from around the world, trying to muster up a strong response to the spread of COVID-19, it is unclear exactly when the Premier League will resume (Sky News).
So far, there has been plenty of speculation surrounding whether the season will be completed, voided, or something in between.
The club’s 50,000 or so season-ticket holders were due to be able to renew their seats for the 2020-21 season from March 17 until May 1.
However, according to the Evening Standard, that window has now been postponed in light of the current situation as the club awaits greater clarity.
It is asserted that the Tottenham Hotspur Supporters’ Trust were instrumental in pushing for a postponement to season-ticket renewals.
The report also relayed a statement by the club that read: “We are acutely aware of the uncertain, difficult times we are all living through along with the subsequent disruption to the footballing calendar and have, therefore, taken the decision to postpone the opening of these renewals whilst we await greater clarity.
“We shall keep the opening date under review and will update you as and when a decision is taken to start renewals.
“We appreciate your support and patience as we attempt to minimise the impact of Covid-19 across Club operations.
“Our thoughts are with all those currently affected and we wish them well.”

In reality, the club had no choice but to postpone the renewals given the uncertainty around when footballing action will resume. I personally believe this is going to take us at least five or six months to sort the situation out, which is why I don’t see next season beginning on schedule.
