Tottenham will be in the away dressing room for the Champions League final against Liverpool, despite being nominated as the home team.
Spurs booked their place in the Madrid showpiece following a memorable 3-2 comeback victory over Ajax at the Amsterdam Arena last week.
But due to security reasons, the Tottenham squad have now been allocated the away dressing room with Liverpool given the home dressing room.
Tottenham supporters will be based in the north side of the Wanda Metropolitano Stadium, which has resulted in the decision to switch dressing rooms.
"Before we took our decision, we made an evaluation between the away fans, the Spanish police and the city of Madrid," Wanda Metropolitano Stadium manager Fernado Fariza told Sky Sports News.
"We took into account the number of fans of both of the finalist, the metro lines and the fan meeting points in the city.
"Taking into account all these issues, the final decision was that Liverpool fans should arrive at the south stand and they will have all their tickets in the south stand.
"On the other hand, Tottenham supporters will arrive at the north stand and they will have all their tickets in the north stand."
Both sides have been allocated 16,613 tickets for the final on June 1, despite the capacity for the game being set at 63,000.
