Tottenham Hotspur fans have been left disappointed after tickets for the club’s clash with Crystal Palace sold out almost immediately.
Spurs will face the Eagles in the first Premier League game at their new stadium, which opened on Sunday.
The first game held at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, as it is currently known, saw the club’s Under-18 side beat Southampton 3-1.
That was a test event and will be followed by another this weekend, with a team of Spurs legends taking on their Inter Milan counterparts.
Provided a safety certificate is granted – these test events are necessary to one being awarded – the first official top-flight game will come on Wednesday, April 3rd. A trip to Liverpool will come first at the end of this month.
It is unsurprising, then, that a host of Spurs fans attempted to buy tickets to be there for the clash against Roy Hodgson’s men.
But many were left disappointed after being placed in a queue, only to find that there were none left available.
And many took to Twitter to express their frustration. Take a look at the best of the reaction below!

Sat in the queue since 9:10 having failed to get tickets yesterday. Wheel of death on 99% for over an hour and now sold out. Not sure in the point of having a Hotspur+ membership apart from getting on season ticket waiting list. Gutted ? #THFC #COYS

Going to Wembley for almost 2 years and being a Hotspur plus member means absolutely nothing.
The ticketing system needs a complete overhaul. Two days trying to get Palace tickets only to find all sold out.#COYS #Tottenham #THFC

@THSTOfficial How can we build a £1bn stadium but not a fair ticketing system? I was in the queue at 9:15 as soon as queue started yet Im still not in and it's sold out. Is there any point to membership? Can't get tickets home or away, absolute joke. Needs to be raised w/THFC pls
