Tottenham’s new 62,062 capacity stadium is finally ready to host matches after repeated delays. The delays have been a source of much frustration for the fans, who have had to watch Spurs play their home games at Wembley for nearly two seasons.
However, all those troubles were forgotten by those who visited the stadium on Sunday to watch the first ever match at the venue which saw Tottenham’s under-18s take on Southampton.
The 28,000-odd Spurs fans who attended the match which was the first of two test events scheduled at the venue, were absolutely blown away by the stadium’s features including the single tier south stand, and the range of restaurants and bars on offer.
Now, the club have revealed through their official website that the stadium will become the first one to have an art gallery inside.
The gallery which will be located in the West Level 1 concourses showcases the work of local artists and draws attention to the artistic talent that exists within the area.
The artists involved will be displaying works of art inspired by the area of Tottenham.
While football fans in general aren’t thought of as connoisseurs of art, the gallery will add even more authenticity to the venue particularly given that the art will be inspired by the local area.
