Tottenham Hotspur FC is asking fans to arrive early for tonight's Europa League match against Russian side Rubin Kazan in order to support the local economy. The club has also invited local businesses, Council staff and the emergency services most affected by the recent riots in the area to the game as its guests. It's a great gesture that gives further hope to those who want the club to play its part in regenerating the area.
