The new Tottenham Hotspur stadium has hosted three matches since it’s official opening earlier in the month, and all of the fans and media personnel who have visited the stadium have raved about the venue.
The 62,062 capacity stadium boasts of several unique features including the largest single-tier stand in the UK, a vast array of food and drink outlets, and a retractable pitch to host NFL matches.
Based on the three games that have been played at the venue, it is also clear that the stadium is quite atmospheric unlike other modern stadiums like the Emirates and the London Stadium.
Tottenham Chairman Daniel Levy has now revealed his desire to host world-class events at the stadium like the Champions League final and the Super Bowl.
He said that the retractable pitch will allow the stadium to be used for multiple entertainment and sporting events throughout the year.
Speaking to the Evening Standard, Levy said, “We have been delighted with the reaction from our fans and all visitors since we officially opened our new home two weeks ago. Our aim was always to create an iconic multi-use venue capable of hosting world-class events.
“We have the top Uefa stadium status, which means the venue is fit to stage any European football event, and we believe the stadium’s extensive capabilities, particularly the flexibility of having two surfaces, mean we can host a vast range of world-class sporting and entertainment events.
“We’d be open to having conversations if the relevant organisations were interested in using our stadium.
“We want this venue to be visited by millions throughout the year and having secured such big attractions in Tottenham like Premier League football, Saracens and the NFL, this can only boost the economy in London.”
