Tottenham will find out on January 19 whether the first leg of their UEFA Cup clash against hosts Feyenoord will have to be played behind closed doors.
UEFA have appealed against an independent disciplinary tribunal sentence of a suspended two-match stadium ban for the Dutch side after rioting by the club's fans caused a game against Nancy to be held up by 30 minutes earlier this season.
The European governing body believe the punishment is not harsh enough and if a heavier sentence is imposed, the match in Holland against Spurs - scheduled for February 14 - could be played in an empty ground.
'The ongoing disciplinary process between UEFA and Feyenoord will be decided at a hearing on January 19,' read a club statement.
'UEFA have assured us that a decision will be made on the day.'
