Football.London have revealed that Tottenham Hotspur have submitted a new planning application to construct a media centre at their Hotspur Way training complex in Enfield.

Hotspur Way is one of the most state-of-the-art training facilities in the world but the club continue to make improvements to the centre.

It is revealed that work is currently being done on a single-storey extension to the club’s academy building to not only benefit the academy players but to also give a dedicated space to Tottenham Hotspur Women for training and working.

In addition, the report states that an application has been submitted to Enfield Council for a two-storey extension to build a new media centre on the end of the first team building.

The media centre will have film studios for visual content creation alongside associated storage space, while the first-floor level will provide work and meeting facilities for the club’s press and media teams.

The new facilities will house desk space for 30 to 35 staff in total, an editing suite with desks for seven staff, an editing space within the large studio, a press director office which doubles as additional flexible meeting space, a separate meeting room, an open-plan office, meeting booths and ‘creative thinking space’.

In addition, Football.London reveal that there will also be three studios in the media centre, including an informal studio ‘living room’, a formal interview studio, a green screen/VR studio, and other additional facilities.

Spurs Web Opinion

Continuing to upgrade the training centre is not only good for the first-team, academy set up and the women’s team, but it also makes the club more lucrative to potential investors.

That could be one of the motivations behind the improvements, given that Spurs are reported to be more for sale now than they have been for any time under ENIC’s ownership (Athletic).
