Tottenham will be hosting Chelsea in the Premier League later this month – they’re hoping it’ll be the first ever net zero football match.
One issue which isn’t discussed enough is the carbon footprint left behind by the game of football.
From fans and players’ travel arrangements, to plastic waste and other potentially harmful practices, it’s an issue that needs addressing sooner rather than later.
As reported by the BBC, Tottenham and Chelsea are working with the relevant organisations to set an example for the country – and the world – to follow.
The teams will be arriving at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in ‘coaches powered by biofuel’, as well as ditching the plastic bottles for their drinking water.
Fans are being encouraged to cycle or walk to the stadium if possible, as well as eating VEGAN FOOD on the day.
It’d be a major change from the norms, what football fans are ordinarily accustomed to, but it’s an excellent idea and one we’d like to see more of going forward.
