The original info on test events said that any tickets left after ST's had first choice said that tickets would go to ballot for members

"Should we be undersubscribed with applications from Season Ticket Holders, One Hotspur members will be invited to submit an application and randomly selected by the ballot process."

If they are now 1st come first served that must mean take up by ST's has not been that great. If we do not get the required numbers for test events they won't get a safety certificate.

Don’t worry - there’s people ready and waiting for if a single ticket goes on general sale!

Real shame if true

People have been quick enough to slam Wembley and not turn up, myself included, but to then not show up and help the club move back is shocking

Only going on what the club quoted in their press releases.

"In order to achieve a formal safety certificate for fixtures to be held at the new stadium, we are required to hold two Test Event matches with increasing levels of attendances. "

It may well be that the actual numbers required are less than stated and that the club are trying to ensure we meet the minimum requirement by setting the figures at circa 30000 & 40000 which could be well be above the minimum levels.

I hope so some of the support we have is pretty pathetic sometimes, 29000 at Wembley for Watford comes to mind.
In isolation then yes. 29000 in a 90000 capacity stadium does ring alarm bells. But you’re not exactly telling the whole story there though are you? And this is how papers do sensationalism. Cherry-picking the scandalous points to promote negativity. Truth of the matter is our support has been fantastic over the last two years considering how much we have had to deal with compared to the clubs. I didn’t go to the Watford game. I don’t think that’s pathetic support. I would much rather have been there, or even better, watched it in N17.

For a team challenging for a top four place some of the crowds were not good .

What is Spurs’ lowest attendance at Wembley during the 2018-2019 season?
It was the 29,164 crowd that saw them beat Watford 2-1 on 30 January, 2019. Before that, it was the 33,012 crowd for the Spurs v Southampton midweek game on 5 December, 2018. The third, fourth and fifth lowest crowds were 41,219 for Spurs vs Newcastle on February 2, 41,645 for Spurs v Burnley on 15 December, 2018 and 43,268 for Spurs v Cardiff on 6 October, 2018. Interestingly enough, the Cardiff one came just days after their highest crowd of 82,137 v Barcelona on October 3.

London Stadium is an appalling stadium yet even with some poor home performances and some manipulated attendance figures West Ham have commanded better home support.

West Ham fans didn’t have to shell out for Champions League tickets. The prices of which would pay for nearly half a season ticket for West Ham.

Also it wasn’t actually 29000 in a 90000 capacity though as reduced capacity for some games. That doesn’t make it better but prefer actual stats to the ones the press use to beat us with.
As to not attending test events some supporters, like myself, take the international break as an opportunity for a holiday and not miss PL games. Plus those who live outside London maybe can not afford another 2 trips for test events.

Essentially we have 50k ST with corporate the fact it’s gone to members means we’ve had a take up less than 30k which I don’t find that surprising. I’d probably have guessed we’d sell 20-25 k to ST. A lot of people just don’t have the excitement or interest we do on here. A lot of older people I know who aren’t really on social media or forums are like - oh it’s ready I’ll just wait for a proper game. Both events will sell out even if it has to go to general sale.
