Norwich issue warning to Spurs fans.
Norwich City have issued a warning to any Tottenham Hotspur fans found to be in home areas of Carrow Road during Sunday’s meeting between the two clubs.
A Spurs win on the final day of the Premier League season would guarantee a return to the Champions League, making it a hugely significant match for fans of the North London club.
Norwich, on the other hand, have long-since been relegated and it would appear that some of their supporters would rather do something else on Sunday, while selling their tickets to Spurs fans who want to see the game.
However, the Canaries issued a statement on Thursday which serves as a stern warning to any of the clubs supporters who are partaking in this, and to Tottenham fans who may be buying them.
⚠️ In line with an increased risk of infiltration of away supporters in home areas, we would like to remind those attending this weekend’s game against Tottenham Hotspur of the importance of adhering to our stadium and ground regulations ⬇️#NCFC | #NORTOT

‘In line with an increased risk of infiltration of away supporters in home areas, any Tottenham Hotspur fans found in home areas will be ejected from the stadium without refund,’ the statement begins.
‘The club will also work to identify and sanction any supporters who have resold or passed on tickets to away supporters.
‘As previously announced, the club would also like to remind supporters that following the conclusion of Sunday’s game players from both the club’s first team and women’s team will conduct a lap of thanks.
‘Any supporter encroaching onto the pitch at Carrow Road without prior permission from the club will be identified and sanctioned accordingly. Recent sanctions for such offences have resulted in lifetime bans from attending sporting events.’
Norwich v Spurs.
While a win for Spurs would take them back to European football’s top table for the first time since 2019/20, a draw would likely be enough for Antonio Conte’s men.
The club are two points ahead of arch-rivals Arsenal with a game to play, although Spurs are 15 goals better off in goal difference.
Arsenal host Everton at the same time Spurs play Norwich, with all 10 Premier League matches kicking off at 4pm this Sunday.
