Tottenham’s Europa Conference League meeting with Rennes, that was due to take place on Thursday night, was cancelled at short notice because of Spurs’ COVID-19 outbreak.
A number of players and staff members have tested positive for coronavirus at Tottenham this week, leading the club to close down the first-team area of the training ground and postpone matches against Rennes and Brighton.
With the Rennes cancellation happening so close to to kick-off, preparations for the game had obviously already been made by the club – including fresh food for sale to the supporters.
So what did Spurs do with all that grub? Well, in a social media post on Friday the club confirmed surplus food was donated to The Felix Project, a local charity that ensures local people in need do not go hungry.

It’s a lovely gesture from Tottenham, who may have to make similar decisions in the future if there are more postponements across the festive period.
Let’s hope everybody at the club is healthy and we can start watching Spurs play football again soon.
