As our new home edges ever closer to completion, the club have now revealed just how stunning the 62,000-seater stadium will look on match nights.
It’s well known that more than 1,600 people are working on the site of the old White Hart Lane ground in order to finish the new £850million stadium before the start of next season and earlier this week, photographs showed new glass panels had been installed around the outside of the state-of-the-art ground.
And in addition they revealed that 170 of those panels will feature LED lights that will allow the ground to glow like Bayern Munich’s incredible Allianz Arena.
The German giants ground lights up in the club’s red colours on match nights and the club will now follow suit with new images showing how the stadium will light up the north London skyline courtesy of the blue LED lights.
It follows the addition of roof columns earlier this month that created the round shape of the stadium, enabling fans to see the final shape of our new home with Daniel Levy (and everyone else) wanting the new stadium to be ready for the start of the 2018-19 Premier League season in August.
We will also be looking to achieve Champions League football for their new home and currently lie in fifth, just a point behind Chelsea and there is the added pressure of being ready on time because the stadium will hold its first NFL game – as part of a 10-year agreement – when the Seattle Seahawks play the Oakland Raiders in Tottenham on October 14th
The stadium will also include the Premier Leagues first retractable pitch, which will help keep the playing surface in pinnacle condition at all times with one for football and the other for NFL.
The top pitch will be made of grass and used only for Spurs matches, and will be rolled away on wheels under the new South Stand to reveal an artificial surface beneath for the Gridiron games.
Can’t wait for it to be done
