Talks with HSBC over purchasing the naming rights for the new Tottenham stadium have broken down, according to The Times.

The club announced the new stadium will be known as the ‘Tottenham Hotspur Stadium’ whilst talks were reportedly ‘ongoing’.

Chairman of HSBC, Mark Tucker was leading the talks with Spurs but it is believed a figure was not agreed with Spurs chairman Daniel Levy.

The two men have dealt with each other before with Tucker being the former chief executive of Tottenham’s current kit sponsor AIA.

Therefore, the search for a stadium sponsor continues and Spurs are said to be holding out for the right option.

Many fans have cried out for the club to name the stadium the ‘New White Hart Lane’ or simply just ‘White Hart Lane’ again.

However, with such a mammoth bill to finance it would be near impossible for Spurs not to sell the stadium’s naming rights.

Spurs fans, who would you like to see sponsor the new stadium?

  1. To be honest 20 million a year over 10 years isn’t going to be a huge factor in financing the stadium. With the added revenue from the stadium as well as the other projects like the hotel and apartments. Tv revenue increasing every year. CL revenue. This project will pay itself off in around 5 years . There is enough money behind it to not be desperate for a naming rights deal.

  2. Why does’nt Joe Lewis put in 50m a year And we can call it the Joe Lewis Stadium? He has put in precious little else?

  3. Let’s not forget the man who single handedly brought glory to our club and instilled the values that we hold so close to this day.

    BILL NICHOLSON STADIUM.

  4. Should get the construction company involved as we’d get some of the money back although how we’d put Billy Smarts Circus into a song is beyond me. Would prefer New White Hart Lane but Bill Nic is a good one. Please do not sell our heritage for 12 pieces of silver.
