So Spurs have just sold out their 40,000 season tickets at the 90,000 seater Wembley. 1 month after The Arsenal closed off their 44,000 season ticket renewal deadline, Spurs seem happy to have finally managed to sell out tickets for the England national stadium.
But at what cost to their relationship with fans?
Firstly it seems when planning to move to Wembley, Spurs promised current season ticket holders that they could take a “break” and not renew when they moved to Wembley on the promise they would get a season ticket at the new White Hart Lane.
Spurs have apparently gone back on this offer and forced old season ticket holders to renew, otherwise the will miss out on the new stadium and go to the back of the waiting list.
To attract additional buyers, Spurs have also promised any new fan who buys a season ticket at Wembley a season ticket at their new stadium, no matter where they sat on the season ticket waiting list.
The deal was simple. Buy a season ticket at Wembley for the next two seasons (more on two seasons later), guarantee yourself a season ticket for the new White Hart Lane.
Spurs fans are reportedly not too happy with the bribery and fake promises by the club which have forced them to buy a Wembley season ticket.
Hidden amongst the marketing for the season tickets was the fact that Spurs expect to be at Wembley for two years as the construction of the new White Hart Lane is at least a year behind schedule.
