Tottenham Hotspur’s brand new stadium saw its first action on Sunday when the club’s Under 18’s took on their Southampton counterparts.
Among those in attendance watching the 3-1 win for the academy side was legendary Spurs goalkeeper Ray Clemence, who admitted that despite the frustrations of the ongoing delays that it was worth waiting for.
The 62,062 capacity seater stadium was due to open last September for the visit of Liverpool in the Premier League, but had to be postponed due to ongoing issues with critical safety systems.
Spurs will hold their second test event this weekend when the legends take on Forza Inter in front of a crowd of 45,000 supporters. Should the event go to plan, it will mean that the club will be awarded a safety certificate.
Mauricio Pochettino’s side will play their first competitive fixture at the stadium next Wednesday when Crystal Palace are the visitors in a Premier League clash.
