Members of the Trust Board met with Tottenham Hotspur’s Head of Supporter Engagement for a planning meeting ahead of the Champions League Round of 16 match against AC Milan on Valentine’s Day. 4359 Spurs fans will be making their way to the San Siro and we wanted to clarify what they should expect on the day, as well as challenge some of the more draconian measures imposed by AC Milan and the local police.
In January, as part of an ongoing dialogue with Spurs, THST asked the Club to respond to four key questions that reflected the concerns of increasing numbers of Trust members and Spurs fans generally. THFC committed to answer our questions, in full, once the transfer window had closed, along with a ‘post transfer window wrap’ from Fabio Paratici. They also confirmed that the financial returns would be reported to all supporters in February.

THST Board members held an online planning meeting with staff from Preston North End FC, Tottenham Hotspur FC, Preston Police and the Metropolitan Police to discuss our visit to Deepdale for the fourth round FA Cup tie this coming Saturday. Here’s a summary of our discussions, which we hope will provide insight for the 5,600 Spurs fans heading to Lancashire this weekend.
Over the last month events and developments have fuelled long-standing discontent with the situation at THFC. THST has made fan feeling extremely clear to the Club’s Board. We have publicly called for the Club to set out its strategy, reiterating that call when Antonio Conte questioned the practice of no-one from the Club giving public interviews to explain the strategic approach.
Two weeks ago we asked the Board of THFC to outline its strategy and vision. Today Antonio Conte asked for the same thing.
It is clear to everyone that, for there to be a chance of success at this Club, the vision and strategy of the Board and Manager must align.
The Tottenham Hotspur Supporters' Trust board has written to the Club board to highlight growing concern amongst our fanbase in a number of key areas. The letter can be read in full below.
We are sorry to have to tell you that former Co-Chair Martin Cloake has decided to stand down from the Trust Board with immediate effect, rather than at the Annual General Meeting in February 2023 as originally planned.

Tuesday sees the final game in what has been an incredibly tight UEFA Champions League group, with Spurs fans making their way to what will be a lively fixture in Marseille. THST Board members have spoken with representatives of Football Supporters Europe and Tottenham Hotspur Football Club to both understand and input into the arrangements for the trip and are sharing the following information as an accompaniment to official Club travel communications.
THST Co-Chair Rachel Martin and Simon Sullivan, Board member, met with the catering leads at THFC on Friday 30 September to share the results of the recent catering survey and to talk about the future plans for the food and beverage provision at the stadium.
We hope you have all recovered from the nervy last few minutes of Wednesday night’s Champions League game against Eintracht Frankfurt and can enjoy the very welcome three points putting Spurs top of the group.

The Department for Digital, Culture, Media & Sport (DCMS) recently called for written evidence with regards to spectator safety at major sporting events.
Before the publication of the ticket pricing for the Marseille match, we made clear to the Club our view that the pricing at Category B was too high, and completely out of line with that of other clubs.
THST members will be aware we raised a number of concerns with the Club about incidents at our match against Olympique de Marseille. We issued a statement and wrote to the Club outlining the areas of concern including examples raised by Trust members who attended the game.
