The Tottenham Hotspur Stadium opened its doors to the NFL earlier this week as part of the club’s 10-year agreement to host American football at the venue.
The event was scheduled to hold final try-outs for the NFL Academy, where 150 young Londoners took part to secure a chance to combine full-time education with the opportunity of playing college football in the States.
Some established NFL stars made the trip across the pond to support the event, including Mario Addison of the Carolina Panthers.
The defensive end will get the opportunity to play at the stadium in October when they face the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and described the 62,062 capacity seater stadium as something from the Hollywood film ‘Demolition Man’, a reference to how futuristic the venue is.
