Tottenham Hotspur are to make the minimum required 3,000 tickets available to Premier League away fans at Wembley next season.

The club has announced that Blocks 112-117 will be allocated for away fans during the course of the 2017-18 campaign.

According to a report in the Newcastle Chronicle newspaper, the area contains around 3,000 seats. It was previously suggested that a further 3,000 tickets would be available to visiting fans in Blocks 118 and 119, but Tottenham now say that information was published in error.

The ruling for the allocation of away tickets in the Premier League is as follows: “3,000 tickets or, if the capacity of the home club’s stadium is less than 30,000, such number of tickets as is equal to 10 per cent.”

Tottenham have been given permission to open Wembley to its full capacity of 90,000 for 22 events during the course of the season, which means just one in 30 seats are to be offered to away fans. However, Manchester United and Arsenal, which both have capacities of more than 60,000, also currently match the Premier League’s minimum allocation requirement of around 3,000.

Tottenham said the allocated away area could change for matches during Uefa competitions dependent on opponents and their ticketing requirements.
