Indeed it does, but an average PL attendance of 68,052, up from 31,639 the previous season, suggests a massive increase in numbers. Also, the 89.8% capacity uptake against us is higher than their average for WHL the season before, which was around 87.2%.

The new stadium will have a capacity of 62,000. I don't think it's fair that all of a sudden an extra 28,000 seats become available to Spurs fans for this game because the club has been unable to fulfill its obligations (and potentially inconvenienced thousands of travelling fans), even if just 1 of those seats is taken up.


before they moved to wembley, they had c23k season ticket holders at whl with a waiting list of c60k.
if all of those 60k were serious about getting season tix then they should be filling wembley week in week out, especially when you take into consideration the additional number of fans who go to only one / a few games a season.
58k for the first home game of the season and a london derby kicking off at 3pm is embarrassing.


I get your point. I've got no idea what criteria you needed to meet to get a ticket for their home games last season, though: I'd have thought, in addition to the c.23K plus c.60K you mention and 3K away fans from each club, there'd have been a massive uptake from tourists who'd want to go just because it's a game at Wembley. Maybe something like our 'purchase history' rule for CL matches was put in place.

I'd have guessed season tickets were only a (relatively) small proportion of the attendances last season, as there'd be no guarantee you'd be able to retain your ST following the move to the new stadium and related massive reduction in capacity. Unless they had some kind of single-season ST offer where you waived all rights to renewal.

PL confirms the fixture between Spurs and City scheduled for the 28th October will now take place at Wembley the following day, Monday 29th with an 8pm KO. Apparently the PL and Spurs have apologised for the inconvenience to City fans. So one assumes they won’t charge for the tickets then.

A farce

Word is MCFC now seeking advice to to get this game rescheduled due to a NFL game being played on the same pitch 24 hours eaflier . So the outstanding question is why aren’t spurs being taken to task ????

Even in this thread, it was mentioned a while ago that there is an NFL game the day before. Why is this 'Most likely' damaging event ( playing field damage) only now being discussed by parties to the event? You can bet, just as sure as we have had the sunniest Summer in Europe since records began, that it will Persist down in England for five days before we meet Spurs and the Wembley roof will be jammed open.

It does but it doesn't work.......
Well, it sort of works. It takes an hour to retract and doesn't even cover the pitch then, just the seated areas.
It is never operated while the stadium is full, only empty, which kind of renders it useless to counteract weather conditions, doesn't it?

I know fans from other countries typically stay out of these debates, but please know I side with our fans concerns about how this has been handled by Spurs the PL and arguably even the club who one could argue should at least give a sense they stood up for how this affects away fans.

One of my mates is a safety engineer and he is working on the stadium. I met him for a couple of pints the other week and he said that it could be Christmas before the stadium is finished. He told me that in the press Spurs are saying that the reason for the delay is due to health and safety which is a complete bollox as the construction work on the stadium hasn't finished and you cant do a safety check until all works have ceased.
