“It’s a joke” – Spurs fans slam club policy ahead of CL semi-final

Tottenham Hotspur will go into their first European semi-final in 57 years on Tuesday night when they face Ajax at their new stadium in the first of a two-legged Champions League affair.

Spurs’ season was looking like it would wither away with their title challenge, but an impressive double-display against Manchester City in the quarter-finals has revived the club and leaves the North Londoners in with a real chance of an appearance in the final in Madrid on 1st June.

Fans are rightfully jubilant about the upcoming fixtures, but many have found it hard to buy tickets to travel and support their beloved Spurs in Amsterdam.

For fans to buy tickets, they need to have obtained a certain number of loyalty points. In order to earn these points, one must attend a certain number of away games. The design is such that the most devoted supporters get the chance to see the team away from home in the most important games of the season rather than losing out to fans who only turn up for the big occasion – seems fair.

However, as many have pointed out, it’s a bit of a catch-22. In order to buy tickets, you need to have the points, but in order to have the points, you need to have attended a certain number of games.

The suggestion to Spurs fans who have these complaints is that they attend more of the lesser games away from home in order to earn the points, as having a season ticket for years makes little difference.

These fans took to Twitter to vent their anger, leaving a slightly sour taste on what is sure to be an incredibly exciting occasion…
