Tottenham Hotspur (Spurs) Football Club is located in North London. The club is also known as Spurs. Tottenham's home ground is White Hart Lane. The club motto is Audere est Facere (To dare is to do).

As most supporters will be aware, the Club has recently launched a campaign to highlight the serious nature of fans persistently standing at matches and the possible serious consequences we face from the authorities (such as having part or even all of White Hart Lane closed) should we not do something to prevent it.

The Club would like to thank the large number of fans who have contacted the Club, supporting us for taking this stance as they wish to sit during matches but are forced to stand as the people around them stand. These include children who can’t see the match and senior citizens who aren’t able to stand for long periods.

We recognise that the game is exciting and that at various points in a match fans will stand, but we must make every effort to prevent persistent standing to ensure the maximum enjoyment for supporters.
