Tottenham’s new stadium will see its first ever football match today as Tottenham Under-18s face off against Southampton. The game will be the first of two test events, before the stadium’s grand opening on April 3rd against Crystal Palace.
Midfielder Oliver Skipp will be one of those who has the opportunity to be part of this historic moment.
The 18-year-old who has been involved in first-team action this season has spoken about the honour of being the first players to ever play a match at the venue.
The club posted a pre-match interview with Skipp from their official twitter account:
🗣 "It’s an honour to play the first game here."
