Both Manchester City and Tottenham have been allocated 2,000 tickets for the Carabao Cup final on April 25th at Wembley Stadium, but that comes with some special requirements - especially for travelling fans of Pep Guardiola's side.

As reported in the Guardian, all fans with tickets will be made to prove that they are free from COVID-19 by providing a certificate to show they have either been vaccinated, have immunity, or produced a negative test.

Manchester City fans may also have to use special 'Covid-secure' transport on their way to Wembley Stadium from the North-West, although details as to how this will be managed have yet to be clarified.

There's also the potential of people being placed in designated bubbles outside of Wembley Stadium in the build-up to the game and before to entering. 

The Tottenham Hotspur Supporters Trust feel that fans have been "utterly disregarded" by the Government and the English Football League in the consultation process before coming to this decision.

They went on to say that they are "focussed on ensuring as many tickets as possible go to fans of each club."

A total of 8,000 people will be awarded tickets for the event, so supporters will make up just half of those in attendance, with the remaining tickets going to local residents of Brent, and NHS staff.

With the game now close to just two weeks away, the situation is bound to move quickly, with further details yet to unfold.
