A lot of Tottenham Hotspur supporters have been reacting to a tweet that was recently posted by the club’s official Twitter account in which it was confirmed that 2,000 fans will be able to attend a Premier League game at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium for the first time since March when Spurs host their north London rivals Arsenal on 6th December.
This tweet included a link to a post on the club’s official website which explained that Tottenham’s season ticket holders and executive members will be entered into a ballot to get tickets for the game.
So, how did these Spurs fans react to their club’s tweet sharing this news on fans returning to Tottenham Hotspur Stadium?
We are pleased to confirm we shall be opening our doors to 2,000 fans at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium for the first time since March for our Premier League clash with Arsenal on Sunday 6 December.

In the club’s website post, it was stated that while they wish they could have more than 2,000 fans at this game, they do view this as a ‘huge step in the right direction.’
Despite that, some Lilywhites fans replied to their club’s tweet to share some unhappiness over this news.
I don’t know about this one, I think 2000 is a bit too little, it’s gonna be weird and not really create an atmosphere, hope I’m wrong though!

Why 2,000? Why not 3k or 1k? Why not 10k or 20k?
This is all so stupid and we’re all so sick of it.

However, many more Spurs fans reacted positively to this news.
With how the stadium was built to heighten sound 2000 fans will sound like a hell of a lot more ??

So, while some Tottenham supporters had some issues with the number of fans that will be able to attend their clash with Arsenal, this news certainly went down well with the majority of these Lilywhites supporters, and given that no fans have been able to watch a game at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium since March, perhaps that’s not a big surprise.
