TOTTENHAM Hotspur is to play all home games next season on the internet while work on a new stadium is completed.
The club claims the move is in the interest of fans after other options, including breaking the team into four to play at four non-league grounds simultaneously, were rejected by the FA.
Chairman Daniel Levy said: “We need a convenient location with enough capacity for tens of thousands of supporters.
“We’re currently negotiating with Minecraft, World of Warcraft and EVE Online for a piece of virtual real estate big enough to accommodate all our matchday packages, from being there on the pitch with the players to a glitchy livestream.
“And because the web is rife with anti-Semitic nutjobs, the away fans will feel right at home.”
Manager Mauricio Pochettino added: “If anyone gets injured we’re levelling up Hugo Lloris so he can cast a healing spell.”
