White Hart Lane has been the famous home of Tottenham Hotspur Football Club for 118 years, but following the game against Manchester United this Sunday, Spurs will never play there again. With a new stadium being built over the current ground, expected to be finished by the beginning of the 2018-19 season, the demolition of White Hart Lane will reportedly take place on the 15th May, the next day after it hosts its last ever football match.
An event coined as ‘White Hart Lane The Finale’ by the club on social media, will see around 80 former Spurs players and legends take to the pitch after the game in a commemorative parade. During the match, the Tottenham players will also play in a limited edition football kit. According to an article published by the Mirror, the shirts will strongly resemble the current home kit, except for including a unique White Hart Lane crest with the words ‘Tottenham Hotspur vs Manchester United, 14th May 2017’.
All proceeds raised by the momentous occasion will be poured into the Tottenham Tribute Trust, appropriately capping a day in celebration of the club and its future.
What’s your finest memory from the Lane? And what do you think the name of the new stadium should be?
