BBC Sport reported that Tottenham Hotspur have reversed their decision to use the government’s furlough scheme for some non-playing staff during the coronavirus pandemic, following criticism from their supporters.
On 31 March, the club announced 550 employees would take a 20% pay cut in an attempt “to protect jobs.”
However, on Monday, a Spurs statement said non-playing staff will receive “100% of their pay for April and May.” The statement added, “only the Board will take salary reductions.”
Equipment has now been installed in the Tottenham Hotspur stadium to operate drive-through COVID-19 testing and swabbing for NHS staff, families and their dependents.
Tottenham Hotspur Stadium becomes the first Premier League ground to be used for testing, following on from other sporting venues around the world.
