According to a report in the Telegraph, Daniel Levy has set a world record price of £25 million-a-year for the naming-rights of the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

Some Spurs fans have taken to Twitter to share their thoughts on 

The report suggests that the Spurs chairman wants a 15-year commitment for the naming rights deal, which at £25 million-a-year would earn the club a staggering £375m. Such a figure would eclipse any of the other naming rights deals both in England as well as the rest of Europe.

Spurs moved into the state of the art 62,062 capacity stadium in April of this year and the ground has been getting rave reviews from fans since its opening.

The report claims that Spurs are not close to finding a buyer for the naming rights but are determined to hold out for the aforementioned price.

Levy admitted to the Evening Standard recently that the club are in no hurry to find a buyer for the naming rights and are prepared to wait for the right brand in the right sector.

Here’s how some fans have reacted to the news:

Levy is being smart by waiting as time is only going to work in the club’s favour. The stadium’s reputation as one of the best in the world seems to be growing and the audience figures for both the Premier League and the Champions League is growing considerably every year. This is obviously a massive factor for any potential client looking to buy the naming rights.
