It has been revealed that more than a thousand MK Dons season ticket holders have been allowed to buy tickets for Tottenham’s Carabao Cup tie that is being held at their ground tonight.
Spurs requested to have their cup tie at Stadium MK, which holds 30,500, due to their new stadium is not ready to play at and they are unable to play at Wembley as prepares are made for a fight between Joshua and Povetkin.
The Daily Mail say the Premier League club have struggled to sell them to their supporters with many boycotting.
However, the Evening Standard claims that around 14,000 of the 50,000 Tottenham season ticket holders have bought tickets. Watford have been allocated 4,500 and no tickets will be available at the gate.
Watford expressed their dismay at the decision, a Hornets source told Sky Sports News: “The integrity of the competition should stand above everything else. If Tottenham cannot fulfil the fixture, then we believe it should be reversed.”
After learning of the request, Tottenham Hotspur Supporters’ Trust said: As a supporters’ organisation, we would obviously not be happy to see our club’s home games moved to Stadium MK.
“Should the game go ahead, we would urge fans to consider the history of the MK club and the views of our friends at AFC Wimbledon.
“Board members of THST will not be attending the match if it is played at Stadium MK.”
Football fans have laughed at Tottenham having to let MK Dons season ticket holders in to watch their game after struggling to sell tickets, fans also expressed their annoyance the game being played at Stadium MK instead of at Watford – check out the tweets getting the most reaction on the next page.
