    Spurs have cut allocations for Chelsea and West Ham games only
    Full allocation and 90,00 seats available for all other games this season
    3,100 is the "full" allocation ie. what they are obliged to give away fans. They gave a much bigger allocation to Dortmund in 2016 and were completely outshouted in losing 2-1, so they've decided not to give more than the minimum requirement.

    What there may be is less onerous restrictions on general sale tickets for the matches outside the big London derbies. So if you are set on going to Wembley to see the Albion but are concerned you won't have enough points, then I suggest looking into registering with Spurs asap.

    Game is scheduled for Wed Dec 13 2017 20:00 so unlikely to be over-subscribed among neutrals or casual Spurs fans, especially if they maintain their poor record there.

      Correct, it's Arsenal and Chelsea where restrictions have been placed and not West Ham as of yet.

      There is no chance of them offering anymore than the required minimum of 3,000 odd to any club this season, Brent council and Met Police would put pay to that even if they wanted too (which I doubt they would anyways). Only comfort for Albion fans who don't have the required loyalty points is there will be plenty available in the 'home' end if you're the type who is able to sit on your hands for 90 mins... you'll be amongst more tourists than Spurs fans I'd imagine.

      It's going to be the same for everyone, unless there is a radical rethink from Spurs who are sticking with the 3,000 minimum.

      It really is piss-poor with a capacity of 90,000, and they brought all the empty seats on themselves yesterday with ludicrous ticket purchase restrictions stemming from segregation concerns. If they had given Chelsea 5,000-7,000, Spurs could have sold the rest and had 83,000-85,000 of their own fans.

      I understand you don't want to make it like a home game for the away side (like when England sold Poland 20,000 for that qualifier, which was mental), but a lot of away fans would want to go and see their team at Wembley and Spurs have taken the piss, 5,000 would be a good compromise.
      Attendance was capped yesterday on advice on Police working with other authorities. Will be near 90,000 next home game.

      Up to 20,000 seats could be left empty at Wembley Stadium for Tottenham’s Premier League clash against Chelsea on Sunday due to security-based restrictions.

      Spurs have so far filled 70,000 seats at Wembley, which can hold 90,000 fans for a football match, but the club has been prevented from putting the remaining tickets on general sale to stop away supporters from buying seats in the home section.

      As reported by The Times, the decision to impose such a restriction was made following security talks between representatives from Brent Council, the Metropolitan Police, the London Ambulance Service and the London Fire Brigade.

      The club are optimistic of selling more tickets in the next few days but must resign to having a large section of the national stadium's upper tier being closed for one of the biggest matches of the season.

      The “restricted general sale” limitation is standard practice for fixtures that are deemed high-risk events, as is the case with a high-profile London derby between rivals Chelsea and Tottenham.

      Tickets for most Premier League matches are rarely released on general sale due the large numbers of season ticket-holders and members at each club, but Tottenham’s temporary move to Wembley has opened up certain matches to casual supporters.

      https://www.standard.co.uk/sport/foo...-a3614001.html

      So far, Spurs have sold around 70,000 tickets, including 3,000 in the away end, for the first League game at their temporary home — some 20,000 short of the national stadium’s capacity. But following talks with the safety advisory group, made up of representatives from Brent Council and the police, fire and ambulance services, the club have not been permitted to put remaining tickets on general sale for fear of Chelsea supporters buying in the home end. Spurs are only able to sell tickets to fans registered on their database prior to July 1, leaving the prospect of swathes of empty seats for one of their biggest games of the season.

      The club are still hopeful of selling more tickets to registered fans before Sunday but it is unlikely the attendance will surpass the 85,512 who attended last season’s Champions League defeat to Bayer Leverkusen — a record crowd for an English club.

      It is expected that Spurs will face similar restrictions for the visits of West Ham in December and Arsenal in February, although each decision is made on individual circumstances.

      So you just need to register with Spurs and you can get a ticket in their section ? No buying of membership?

      If seats remain after Members/Guests have had their pick, general sale is 26th October. It looks like anyone can purchase these ie. no purchase history.

      Always thought away allocation was up to 10%! There's no segregation problem with Wembley as we've seen at International matches.

      10% up to 3000, if the capacity is over 30000 a club only has to give 3000, contrary to what has been said on here in the past a club can give more if they want (but they rarely do)

      The idea of having a football stadium, which you can sell out for a particular game, but you decide not to is a very strange one.
