Marine A.F.C are offering Tottenham season-ticket holders free passage to one of their matches next season as away fans can't go to their FA Cup third-round match

The Mariners

from the eighth level of English football faces the

Premier League

pioneers at the Marine Travel Arena on January 10 which will broadcast live by the BBC. 

With Marine ninth in the Northern Premier League North West Division, the difference between the two sides will be the greatest in the tournament history yet will happen with just home supporters watching. 

As an altruistic sign, the club situated in Crosby on Merseyside have offered


supporters the opportunity to visit when Covid-19 limitations have been lifted off.

“It has been an incredibly tough year for everybody in football. For Marine fans, we have had a once-in-a-lifetime Emirates FA Cup run but sadly the ties against Colchester United, Chester and Havant & Waterlooville had to be played behind closed doors,” said a statement.

“This is devastating for the supporters of Marine and has also severely affected the revenues we would have otherwise received.

“Likewise, Tottenham Hotspur fans have not been able to attend their games and have missed their team’s rise to top of the Premier League.

“Spurs fans also are not allowed to attend the Emirates FA Cup match due to the pandemic.

“As a result of this, Marine Football Club announce that they will allow entry next season free of charge to one Marine league game to all Spurs season-ticket holders.

“This will allow Spurs fans to have the chance to attend the ground having missed out this time and will strengthen that bond between the clubs.”
