Some Spurs fans on social media were delighted to hear that Amazon is reportedly taking an interest in the naming rights for the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
The Daily Mail reported that Amazon has expressed an interest in entering into a partnership with Spurs for the naming rights of their state-of-the-art 62,303-capacity venue.
The report suggested that the US firm has established strong links with the club while filming their forthcoming behind-the-scenes documentary, All or Nothing.
However, it was revealed that nothing has been finalised and that the Jeff Bezos-owned firm will have to see out competition from sportswear giant Nike in order to secure the deal.
While Some Spurs fans made it clear that they would prefer to have Amazon get the deal over Nike, others insisted that it wouldn’t make a difference as Daniel Levy would fail to reinvest the money into the squad.
Here’s how fans reacted to the update:
If Amazon want naming rights for our stadium, just buy us instead 🙏 take anyone to get ENIC/Levy out of the club

"The Amazon" sounds intimidating imo

I’ve seen quite a few people against it but I’d take Amazon having the naming rights of the stadium. One of the biggest companies in the world.

Let them battle and bring on the money so we can enjoy Levy sitting on a hill of cash he never spends

End of the day it doesn’t matter it’s money to the club, all of the fan base will still call it “white hart lane”

Amazon Arena has a good sound to it @THFC_Ryan

Spurs Web Opinion
No matter who buys the naming rights, I’m sure Levy will want to make it the most expensive stadium naming rights deal in history. However, one wonders if he waited too long as the COVID-19 driven financial downturn doesn’t make this the ideal time for companies to be investing big amounts.
