The Trust, recognised by Tottenham Hotspur as the official voice of Spurs supporters, will now meet regularly with the Chairman and also with other relevant members of the management team as the need arises.
Joff Wild, Chairman of the Trust’s steering committee, and secretary Jonathan Adelman, were at the Lane to ensure that good lines of communication were established in advance of their AGM in October which will see the Trust’s inaugural elections.
Subjects discussed included the club’s work in the community with an offer from the Trust to assist in getting the club’s message across in this vital area. All matters concerning our relationship with our fanbase — in terms of forward planning like possible redevelopment of the stadium and future pricing decisions — would now follow consultations with the Trust.
It was also revealed that on-line ticket sales would be introduced on this site next month enabling potential purchasers to literally ‘sit’ in their chosen seat and assess the view from that particular point in the stadium. And, following input from supporters, there will be a review of ticket office operations to make booking seats an easier process.
To enhance our relationship, two Trust members will be invited to watch a game from the Director’s Box this season and we would continue the popular question and answer sessions with senior members of our coaching staff following the successful launch of the forum by vice-chairman David Buchler in the summer.
The Trust was also encouraged to bring forward their own ideas and initiatives now that a regular platform has been established for a healthy exchange of views.
Commented Joff Wild: “We are delighted that a positive framework for communication has been established and that the club is clearly willing to listen to its supporters. Today’s excellent meeting demonstrates that there is a mutual policy of goodwill between us.”
Added Daniel Levy: “We have always accepted that this club is nothing without its supporters and, although there are some hard decisions to be made, I am confident that we can move forwards together. Our strength is that both club and supporters share a mutual dream and that can only be achieved by us all working as one.”
Chairman Daniel Levy today met with representatives of the Tottenham Trust as the club’s determined policy of working closely with supporters took another step forward.
