Writing on Twitter, Alasdair Gold has shared a huge confirmation from the government that Premier League and cup football is set to continue despite a nationwide lockdown equivalent to March of last year – coming as a big boost for Daniel Levy and Spurs after huge financial losses in the previous shutdown.
On Monday evening, prime minister Boris Johnson announced that England, along with the whole of Britain, has been placed back into a nationwide lockdown.
Gold relays big boost for Levy
Equivalent to the first ever lockdown initiated in March last year, that historic moment resulted in a long football hiatus for Tottenham supporters – but Gold has relayed to Lilywhites that the Premier League will continue as normal with a Carabao Cup semi-final clash nearing.
This comes as a big boost for Levy and Spurs financially, also – especially considering the club recently announced £63.9 million losses due to the absence of matchday and television revenue amongst other forms of income as a result of coronavirus.
Football continuing will mean Levy faces far less uncertainty in regards to Tottenham’s future, with the club still set to receive income from rights of televised matches – another set of losses like those in 2020 could be devastating.
Transfer Tavern take
After this confirmed update, shared by Gold on Twitter, Levy and the Lilywhites will be relieved that the Premier League and cup competitions have been gifted the ‘green light‘ to continue.
Tottenham fans will also be excited by this relieving update, especially given the fact a crunch Carabao Cup clash awaits for them this evening.
Spurs could clinch their first piece of silverware since 2008 this season, and supporters could be joyous knowing there will be no postponement.
