Daniel Podence has named the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium as the Premier League venue he would most like to visit as a fan, via Wolves Fan Inside.
Spurs’ home ground was completed in 2019, with a 2-0 win against Crystal Palace played out in front of a sell-out crowd (BBC).
The stadium cost over £1 billion to erect and can now seat 62,850 spectators after permission was given to add more seating in 2020 (Sky Sports).
The colossal South Stand has been expertly designed to create a ‘wall of sound’ with a 34-degree angle and the front row under five metres from pitchside (Football.London).
Although rival fans have teased, shaping the roof like a goldfish bowl was done with an acoustic purpose in mind. The design creates an amplifying effect which bounces noise back into the stadium instead of allowing it to escape completely into the open air (Football.London).
Podence is clearly a fan of Spurs’ state-of-the-art facilities. He said (Wolves Fan Inside): “Apart from West Brom, because they’re not in the Premier League anymore, it would probably be against Tottenham.
“It’s a great stadium to watch football in because it’s so modern and comfortable, but to be among the Wolves fans would be great because they create a massive noise and it would be a good game to watch with them.”

Having been lucky enough to visit the stadium, I can confirm that the comfort and viewing experience was incredible.
Spurs have had some memorable nights at the ‘new’ stadium already and with Antonio Conte at the helm, there are hopefully many more on the way.
