Journalist aims April Fools Day attack at Tottenham

Tottenham Hotspur opened their new stadium’s doors for the first time this month, welcoming thousands of fans in to watch two test events and explore the facilities.

30,000 fans flocked to watch an under 18s match against Southampton, followed by another 45,000 who turned up to see a Spurs legends team take on Inter Milan.

The events were an overwhelming success, and fans have been left gobsmacked by the new stadium, the huge club shop, and the food and drink facilities inside the ground.

It is fair to say that many will already be looking forward to the first competitive match at the ground on Wednesday against Crystal Palace.

However, the stadium itself is still without a permanent name, currently referred to only as the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

With April Fools Day jokes being rife this morning, decided to roll out a story that Coca Cola has bought the naming rights, labelling Tottenham as ‘bottles’.

They even included these fake quotes: “We are delighted to announce this partnership with Tottenham Hotspur.

“As the most famous bottle in the world, Coca-Cola obviously has a lot of synergy with Spurs. It’s a match made in heaven for us.

“We look forward to a relatively successful but ultimately disappointing partnership.”
