The Tottenham Hotspur Stadium has been selected as one of the major landmarks across the UK that will be illuminated blue later today to mark the 72nd anniversary of the National Health Service.

NHS frontline workers have played an important role in the UK’s on-going fight against the COVID-19 pandemic with tens of thousands of brave healthcare workers putting their lives on the line to help control the virus’ spread.

The population are continuing to show their appreciation for the NHS’ efforts in helping curtail the spread of coronavirus.

Tottenham have now confirmed that the club’s stadium, will be illuminated blue along with landmarks including the Royal Albert Hall, Blackpool Tower, Wembley Stadium, the National Gallery and Balmoral Hotel.

This will be the second time this year that the 62,303-capacity venue will be illuminated blue in tribute of the NHS after it was done so during the launch of the #ClapForOurCarers initiative in March.

The NHS workers, who are putting their lives on the line in the fight against the coronavirus, will be thanked with a nationwide round of applause on Sunday at 5pm.

The date marks the 72nd anniversary of the organisation, which was formed on July 5, 1948.

Spurs Web Opinion

After the initial misstep with their furlough decision, Tottenham have done a lot to aid the NHS in the fight against the virus. The club certainly deserves credit for the role they have played over the last few months.

The NHS workers have proven to be real heroes over the course of this crisis and continue to play an important role. Their efforts certainly deserve to be recognised by the public.
