It has been revealed how many Spurs fans will be allowed to attend the Carabao Cup final
Yes, 2000 Tottenham Hotspur fans will be allowed to attend the Carabao Cup final at Wembley on April 25. You have probably read that the government had given the green light for 8000 supporters to attend the Spurs and Manchester City’s final.
However, the loyalty of being a season ticket holder isn’t a priority for you to get a ticket; oh, no! A number of tickets will be split between two sets of fans, local residents and NHS staff. And those residents/ NHS people could be supporting clubs such as Arsenal, Chelsea, City, United or any other bloody club, but not Tottenham.
The Mail newspaper has now confirmed that 2000 tickets each will be allocated to both clubs while the remaining 4000 will go to Brent residents and NHS staff.
Now that is the easy part; the hard part is that both sets of fans must prove that they are not infected with Covid through a vaccine certificate, recent negative test or proof of immunity.
As for those travelling the furthest(City fans), they would have to use Covid-safe transport to travel to Wembley. However, there is one problem with this: many Spurs supporters will probably travel further than City fans to get to Wembley, so how does that work? And, of course, some City fans might actually live close to the stadium or in London. Not very well thought out, methinks.
There is no confirmation yet on what such transport actually entails, whether fans are permitted to sing (try stopping them) or if wearing masks while seated inside the national stadium are mandatory. Of course, putting such rules/ laws down in writing is the easy part; getting the supporters to enact them is another.
