Tottenham Hotspur have offered their stadium to be used to support vulnerable individuals who have been affected by the Coronavirus pandemic.

The decision was arrived at following discussions between the Haringey Council, the Greater London Authority and the NHS.

In a statement, the club further revealed the basement car park will be used as a storage for the London Food Alliance.

“As a starting point, the stadium’s basement car park is being used as a storage base by the London Food Alliance – a new scheme set up to ensure food supplies for the most vulnerable people within the capital during the COVID-19 pandemic.

“It has been set up by the capital’s three largest food surplus distributors — The Felix Project, FareShare and City Harvest — to pick up nutritious surplus food from suppliers and deliver it in bulk to community hubs in each London borough.

“Each Borough Council is creating hubs to receive the surplus food, divide it into food parcels and deliver them to the doorsteps of vulnerable Londoners – our stadium will be one of two hubs used by Haringey, alongside Alexandra Palace,” read the statement on the club’s official website.

They join other clubs who have donated various facilities to help fight the pandemic, which has threatened to shut down the world.

Chelsea donated their Stamford Bridge hotel to host NHS workers, while there have been similar donations across the world including Real Madrid offering Santiago Bernabeu for similar reasons.
