Spurs Europa League tie vs Wolfsberger moved from Austria to Hungary

Coronavirus restrictions imposed by the Austrian government prevent Jose Mourinho‘s side travelling to face Wolfsberger in their native country, so Hungary has been sourced as an alternative host.

The Puskas Arena, which will also stage the Liverpool v RB Leipzig and Borussia Monchengladbach v Manchester City Champions League matches, will be the venue for Thursday’s round-of-32 first-leg game, which will still kick-off at 5.55pm.

“UEFA would like to thank Wolfsberger AC and Tottenham Hotspur for their close co-operation and support in finding a solution to the issue at hand, as well as the Hungarian Football Federation for their assistance and agreeing to host the match in question,” said a statement from UEFA.

The second leg of the last-32 tie is scheduled to be played at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on Wednesday, 24 February.
