Tottenham sign groundbreaking deal, fans will be happy

Tottenham Hotspur have announced that they will play their Champions League games at Wembley next season, which will give the club a larger allocation of tickets for fans.

The North London club finished third in the Premier League in 2015-16, falling away after posing a real title threat to eventual champions Leicester City.

Spurs fans will look forward to their side playing in Europe’s top tournament once more and more of them will be able to attend the games as the White Hart Lane side will step out at the national stadium.

White Hart Lane is set to be revamped and give Mauricio Pochettino’s men a new home, with it expected that Spurs will play all their games in 2017-18 at Wembley.

The chance to feature at the iconic stadium next term in Europe will be a breeding in process and make Tottenham’s clashes on the continent a much bigger occasion.

Chairman Daniel Levy admitted he was delighted to secure the deal.

“We are delighted that, through working in partnership with WNSL and the Football Association, we have been able to reach this agreement,” The Guardian quote him as saying.

“Given the current reduction in capacity at White Hart Lane for next season and the ticketing requirements for Champions League, playing at Wembley will mean that we can continue to accommodate all of our existing season-ticket holders.

“Our season-ticket waiting list is over 50,000 so this now also offers us a great opportunity to provide more of our supporters with a chance to see the team play live during our Champions League campaign.

“Importantly, as we know it was our fans’ preference, it means that we can continue to play our home matches in London during our season away.”
