Tottenham fans are demanding compensation after their clash with West Ham was moved.
The Daily Mail says Spurs, who have not had a home 3pm Saturday kick off for over two years, gave fans just 15 days’ notice that the kick-off time for the match on 20 March had been put back by two and a half hours from 2pm – simply because Sky Sports were left with a hole when the 4.30pm game between Liverpool and Manchester United could no longer take place.
Hundreds of Spurs fans, who travel to home games from across the UK, had booked cheap, train-specific advance tickets, while a particularly large travelling support from Ireland also now find the flights they booked to be useless.
The Tottenham Hotspur Supporters Trust (THST) say it has asked the club to explore compensating affected fans, though as of last night had received no agreement to that. Compensation for fans is thought to be highly unlikely.
Fans’ frustration is compounded by the fact that the Premier League had failed to announce the first rescheduled 2pm Sunday kick-off time for the West Ham game within six weeks of the fixtures – a deadline agreed with the Football Supporters Association.
