Tottenham Hotspur players may have been enjoying an international break this week but it has been all systems go at their brand-new stadium.
The ground held its first two NFL matches with huge success over the last week, acting as yet another revenue stream for the club, as well as a great chance to broadcast the stadium across America.
But, how much are the club earning from each NFL match?
Football London have reported that Bottoms Up Beer, who provide the technology to allow each glass to be filled up from the bottom revealed in a Tweet which has been since deleted that around £1m was taken in the match between the Bears and the Raiders, with even more than that pocketed on Sunday.
The Spurs shop is also said to have been kitted out with 90% NFL merchandise and 10% Spurs goods, rather than the other way around as it is on Tottenham match days.
With gate receipts going to the NFL teams themselves, Spurs are left to collect all food and drink income, merchandise sales, and the NFL hosting fee for the use of the stadium.
While they do not reveal an exact figure, Football London say that Spurs earn millions for each and every fixture.
Spurs Web Opinion:
Daniel Levy certainly knows what he is doing. An extra multi-million-pound revenue stream for using the stadium during an international break without damaging Tottenham’s pitch. It’s genius! It also broadcasts the stadium to millions of NFL fans, so, who knows, perhaps a naming rights deal could be in the near future.
