The Tottenham Hotspur Stadium is on standby to host this season’s UEFA Champions League final, according to the Daily Mail.

The north London venue has been designed to host a multitude of different events which have been somewhat curtailed by the coronavirus pandemic.   

The NFL host two matches a season at the stadium while the heavyweight boxing bout between Anthony Joshua and Oleksandr Usyk was staged there in July.

The final of Europe’s biggest club football tournament is due to be played in the Russian city’s Gazprom Arena on 28 May, but organisers Uefa are considering moving the match eleswhere following Vladimir Putin’s decision to deploy troops to eastern Ukraine ahead of what could be a full-scale invasion of the country.

Sources have claimed that they would prefer to wait until the four teams who have made it to the semi-final are confirmed, with Wembley Stadium also in contention to be an alternative venue for the final with four English clubs still in the competition.

Tottenham are said to be open to hosting the final, which could be a lucrative event for the club to add to their coffers.

Hosting the Champions League final would be another feather in the cap for Daniel Levy and the club to continue to create exposure of the stadium and hopefully move one step closer to securing money-spinning naming rights for the venue.

Hopefully, with Conte at the helm, Spurs can secure their own place in the competition for next season.
