Watch out South Stand – club threaten to ban fans if they are seen doing this

Tottenham Hotspur will host their first ever European night under the lights at the new stadium against Manchester City in the Champions League this evening.

This is only the second game in total to be held so far at the ground, and Spurs will want to maintain their winning record after the 2-0 victory over Crystal Palace.

Both City and Spurs will be dying to progress to the semi finals, as City look to compete the quadruple this season, and Tottenham look to make it to that stage for the first time in their history.

However, some fans, particularly in the South Stand, will have to watch themselves tonight or face a stadium ban from the club.

Many in the 17,500 strong stand like to stand and watch the game, but the club have announced that anyone seen doing this will be banned.

Until safe standing is re-introduced, standing during games is against both Premier League and UEFA regulations, and the last thing Spurs want to do is get into trouble over their new stadium already.

The email sent to fans read (Express): “Fans are reminded that, as has always been the position in Premier League and UEFA Champions League stadia, standing during matches is against ground regulations.

“The offence is punishable by stadium bans and clubs are at risk of having capacities reduced in certain areas of the stadium if persistent standing is not dealt with.

“We therefore ask for your maximum cooperation with our stewards on this extremely important matter.

“If you are asked to be seated by a steward, please heed this instruction.

“This ensures that everyone can enjoy the match-day without obscured views and in a safe environment.”
