It’s exciting times for Tottenham fans as their new 62,000-seater stadium looks pretty close to completion with the pitch being laid this week. While Spurs fans were disappointed when it was announced earlier in the season that opening date of the stadium had been delayed, they can rest assured knowing that once it’s finished, the stadium will be one of the best in the country.
The stadium boosts of a lot of one-of-a-kind features including a retractable pitch, a microbrewery, the longest bar in the UK, a sky lounge with a panoramic view of the stadium and heated seats. However, the design feature Spurs fans seem to be most excited about is the closeness of the stands to the pitch.
The club has put a special emphasis on the atmosphere at the new ground and have made sure that the stands are as close to the pitch as possible for a stadium of its size. Additionally, the club have also hired acousticians to create more clean reverberation times, meaning chants last longer.
The North London club have perhaps learned from the experiences of Arsenal and West Ham who have had trouble trying to recreate the same atmosphere at their new homes as they enjoyed at Highbury and the Boleyn Ground respectively. A Spurs fan posted a picture of the Emirates Stadium alongside the new Tottenham Hotspur stadium, comparing the stands’ proximity to the pitch in both the grounds.
