Tottenham season ticket holders are selling seats to Arsenal fans for the Manchester City game

Tottenham Hotspur season ticket holders have risked getting into hot water by selling their seats to Arsenal fans for tonight’s game against Manchester City, which could effectively decide the Premier League title race.

Telegraph Sport understands that at least one group of Arsenal fans plan to stay in the home ground tonight after Tottenham season ticket holders agreed to electronically sell their seats privately.

It has been debated which team some Tottenham fans will support tonight, given that a win or a draw for the home side would put Arsenal in the driving seat to win the title on the final day of the season.

This has obviously led to some Arsenal supporters going to extreme lengths and paying for home seats so they can vocally support their club’s biggest rivals.

A member of a group of Arsenal fans who bought seats from a Spurs season ticket holder for tonight’s game told Telegraph Sport: “We did it all on Monday. It took five minutes and was easy. We didn’t have to pay a membership or anything.”

Tottenham are confident that a large number of Arsenal fans will have been unable to access tickets after they closed their membership of the club’s official ticket exchange last week.

But that hasn’t stopped some Arsenal supporters, including the group known to Telegraph Sport, buying the seats outside season ticket holders without Tottenham’s knowledge.

Given that all Arsenal fans in Tottenham’s areas of the ground will be supporting the home team, it may be impossible for officials or fellow supporters to identify them.

But Tottenham will take a dim view of any cases brought to their attention as season ticket holders are responsible for anyone they pass their seat to and must do so via the official ‘ticket quota’ platform.

The club reserves the right to take action against ticket holders who breach its terms and conditions, while individuals or groups may be refused entry or ejected if they are believed to have attempted to access an area of ​​the stadium where they are deemed not to I do it. belongs.
