Spurs place ban on vuvuzelas


Tottenham Hotspur have become the first Premier League club to ban vuvuzelas from their ground on match days.

The instrument which caused controversy during the recent World Cup in South Africa will not be welcome at White Hart Lane next season.

A number of Championship clubs had already banned the plastic horn but Spurs are the first top-flight club to officially do so.

"Following discussions with the police and representatives from the local licensing authorities, the club will not be permitting vuvuzelas or similar instruments into White Hart Lane on match days," read a statement on their official website.

"We are concerned that the presence of the instruments within the stadium pose unnecessary risks to public safety and could impact on the ability of all supporters to hear any emergency safety announcements.

"We are very proud of the fantastic atmosphere that our supporters produce organically at White Hart Lane and we are all very much looking forward to this continuing into the forthcoming season."
