Tottenham Hotspur fans got their first taste of life at the new stadium last weekend as the club opened its doors for the first of two test events.

Fans were allowed in two hours before kick off to check out the new club shop, the fantastic array of food and drink stations, and of course, their new seats.

The test event saw Tottenham’s under 18s beat Southampton U18s 3-1 in a thrilling affair, and the acoustics around the new ground sounded amazing, considering there were only 30,000 in attendance.

Spurs will host the second test event this coming weekend as their legends side take on Inter Forever.

Following this, as long as everything goes to plan, Spurs will open the stadium against Crystal Palace on April 3.

This will give Tottenham a chance to bed themselves in to their new home before competition in their first full season within its walls next campaign.

Teddy Sheringham believes Spurs can make it a fortress (SkySports): “In the long run, when it’s our home, I think it can be a real fortress. And if the quicker we get accustomed to that, the better, for the players.

“That’s why I think it’s good for them to be playing at the end of this season, so that you can feel like you’re going into a new season next year, really understanding what the new stadium is like and what it’s all about.

“So, you have to get your bearings and your surroundings on a football pitch, and the quicker you get accustomed to it, the better.”
