If you thought the Tottenham Hotspur supporter turnout at Wembley Stadium was incredible in their first Champions League match against Monaco, you haven’t seen anything yet. Today the club announced that it has sold out Wembley for its two remaining Champions League home matches against Bayer Leverkusen on November 2 and CSKA Moscow on December 7.
SOLD. OUT. Wembley Stadium seats 90,000 fans, and one can reasonably surmise with this announcement that the club has already released the remaining tickets they expected to come available. Earlier reports had suggested that some of Bayer Leverkusen’s away tickets would be released for general sale, as well as other blocks of tickets including television allocations. That Tottenham is making the official sold out announcement now indicates that they don’t expect any more tickets to open up through, ahem, official channels.
Wow. Tottenham didn’t quite fill Wembley against Monaco and still set three English attendance records. It looks like they’re almost certainly going to break those same records again against Bayern, and possibly a few more. It’s lit!
