Tottenham Hotspur have announced that they have taken action to close their club shops and suspend all tours of the new stadium.
The decision has been made in light of the latest advice issued by the Government where Prime Minister Boris Johnson has advised the public against mass gatherings to help limit the impact of the coronavirus outbreak (BBC).
The store which is located at the new stadium along with the other locations at Harlow, Chelmsford and Stevenage will have their doors closed from today.
Supporters who had booked a tour of the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium will be contacted by the club with more information.
The closure of the retail and visitor attractions are likely to cause a financial impact to the club’s revenue with it yet to be confirmed when they will look to resume their commercial operations.
The home Premier League matches against Manchester United and West Ham have already been postponed.
A statement on the club’s official site read: “Following the latest advice issued by government we’ve made the following decisions regarding our retail and visitor attractions that will come into effect as of tomorrow (Tuesday 17 March).
“Our retail shops at Harlow, Chelmsford, Stevenage and the Tottenham Experience will be closed until further notice. However, you can still shop with us online.
“We shall also be suspending our stadium tours with immediate effect and contacting everyone who is currently booked onto a tour shortly. If we do not email you, it means your tour may still be pending review and we shall continue to keep you updated across Club channels, and via direct email where appropriate, as and when we have any further updates.
“We shall continue to prioritise the health and safety of our supporters and staff with any decisions we need to make in the current climate.
“Thank you for your continued support. Our thoughts are with all those currently affected, and we wish them well.”
