BREAKING: Spurs vs Rennes postponed due to COVID-19 outbreak

The game between Tottenham Hotspur and Rennes in the Europa Conference League has been postponed owing to a COVID-19 outbreak at the north London club.

It was supposed to take place on Thursday, but the new date has yet to be determined.

Spurs were also to ask the Premier League to postpone their Premier League match against Brighton & Hove Albion, which is scheduled to take place on Sunday, as reported by The Athletic on Wednesday.

On that game, no decision has been taken.

Statement from Spurs:

A statement from the London club read: “We can confirm that our UEFA Europa Conference League Group G home fixture against Stade Rennais will not take place tomorrow (Thursday 9 December at 8pm UK) after a number of positive COVID-19 cases at the club. Discussions are ongoing with UEFA and we shall provide a further update on this fixture in due course.

“Additionally, following discussions with the Health Security Agency (formerly Public Health England) and DCMS advisers, the club has been advised to close the first team area of its training centre at this time, in the interests of the health and safety of players and staff.

“All other areas of the training centre remain operational.”
