Our concern has grown in recent weeks with the emergence of Chelsea as a potential rival for the use of Wembley in the 2017/18 season, and after reports in yesterday’s media that THFC may have missed out on the chance to play at Wembley.
So we have today written an open letter to FA Chairman, Greg Dyke, asking for a meeting to discuss backing a campaign that could have widespread benefits.
Spurs is competing against rivals who have either been handed a heavily-taxpayer subsidised stadium or who have long drawn on a funding model the FA says it wishes to move on from in order to meet the requirements of Financial Fair Play regulations.
We believe this should be taken into consideration by the FA, along with the advantages of preserving the London identity of one of the world’s most famous football clubs.
In the coming weeks we will be lobbying and seeking the widest possible support for the FA and THFC to strike a deal.
We are encouraged by the recent efforts by the Club to work alongside THST, and the Club’s willingness to publicly back our position of preferring Wembley as the location for our year away.
* THST is scheduled to meet with THFC on Monday evening, 13 July, and the Club has asked for any questions on the new stadium from fans to be passed onto us via info@THSTOfficial.com for discussion at that session.
In the coming weeks and months, a strong voice for Tottenham Hotspur supporters is more essential than ever. It costs £10 a year for full membership of THST. Please join to help us continue our work and strengthen our voice.
