Tottenham Hotspur apologise for asking whether 'a woman's place is in the home'

Tottenham Hotspur issue a club statement apologising for sending out a survey which contained a 'sexist' question.

Tottenham Hotspur have issued a club statement apologising for a recent survey emailed to supporters that was considered sexist.

Several Tottenham fans in the United States took to social media to vent their anger at the email, which read "Calling all US Spurs fans: tell us what you think".

Inside the interactive widget of the email was the statement "A woman's place is in the home", and recipients were given the choice to "Definitely agree", "Tend to agree", "Neither agree nor disagree", "Tend to disagree" or "Definitely disagree".

A spokesman for Tottenham confirmed the question had been swiftly removed once the "regrettable oversight" was found.

"The survey questions were compiled by a third party on behalf of the club. The inclusion of this question in a club survey was wholly unacceptable and a regrettable oversight," the Tottenham club spokesman said.

"It has been immediately removed from the survey for any other fans now looking to fill this out. We sincerely apologise to anyone offended by its initial inclusion."

Club sources had informed PA that it was a human error, with Kantar Media utilising the question as a surveying technique.
