We end our maiden voyage under Marco Silva’s leadership away to Tottenham Hotspur, but news that the North London side have only allocated the Toffees 2,892 tickets has not gone down well with supporters on Twitter.

It is a tiny number in comparison to how grand their new home is, with Spurs boasting the biggest club stadia in London, and it only falls behind Old Trafford for football grounds in the country.

And yet, from their 62,062 seats, just 4.659% will be coming our way.

Premier League guidelines stipulate that a certain number of tickets are allocated to away sides, however as Spurs’ new home is comfortably above the 30,000 mark, they do not have to meet the 10% rule.

Instead, they are supposed to ensure that 3,000 tickets are given to the travelling side, which clearly – albeit marginally – Spurs are not doing for us.

Our trip to North London on May 12 could prove to be defining to our season, as well, as the Europa League will remain a possibility, providing we do not crumble against Crystal Palace and Burnley, so it will be a shame that more of our supporters cannot be there to carry the side on to, hopefully, a great end to the year.

When news of this was shared on Twitter, the Toffees fanbase were clearly unimpressed…

  • Whilst I agree 3,000 seems poor, Spurs only allocated that when playing at Wembley in 2017/18, and that was with 80,000. Do I’m not sure what the surprise here is

  • …re the 108 missing tickets. It might be a result of Spurs not releasing two rows of seats in the stadium totalling 2,000 ish. And2,000/62000 is approx 3.5% so about 100 in every 3,000.
    Just a guess but seems plausible

  • How many do united give you Around 3000. That’s footy why do spurs want to give you more., Everton’s away facilities are the worst in the premiership, Burnley are close but they have only been up for a few years , The sooner they pull down your dump the better.
