Tottenham install a great new feature at their new stadium

Tottenham’s new stadium was originally supposed to open back on September 15 in the huge clash against Liverpool, which Spurs eventually lost 2-1 at Wembley.

Since then, the delays at the new 62,062 seater stadium have rolled on and on, with Daniel Levy extending Tottenham’s stay at the national stadium until December 15.

However, the stadium appears to now be inching towards final competition, as manager Mauricio Pochettino was quoted by the Telegraph this week that it would be ready in 2018.

This came after some rumours were circulating that the ground wouldn’t be ready until well into the new year.

Standing at football games was banned in 1989 after the horrors of the Hillsborough disaster.

However, thanks to work from Sports Minister Tracy Crouch, clubs now have the option to implement a small number of safe standing areas in their stadiums.

As this news came in June, it provided Tottenham with enough time to factor such an area into their plans, and they have now added the safe standing rails in at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
