The Tottenham Hotspur Stadium is in contention to win the AJ100 Building of the Year 2020 award.

Architects Journal announced that the Spurs stadium was among the 10 buildings shortlisted for the award.

The prestigious award among architects recognises the best building projects completed within the past 12 months by an AJ100-listed practice.

The 62,303 seat stadium opened its doors to Premier League action in April 2019 in a 2-0 win over Crystal Palace (BBC).

Heung-min Son was the first player to score a competitive goal in the stadium with Christian Eriksen netting the second.

Delays set the official opening of the stadium back by almost a year with the original opening date set for September 2018 (Guardian).

Since the opening in 2019, the stadium has been hailed as ‘the best’ by many who have stepped inside it (talkSPORT).

Two NFL games have already taken place in the stadium and a number of live music concerts were scheduled to take place this summer but have all been cancelled as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Spurs Web Opinion

To many fans, this prize will mean very little. In terms of what it means to the team, I guess it is meaningless. However, it is good to see the incredible work put in to design this incredible stadium is being recognised on a global scale.
