A set of aerial photos of the brand new Tottenham stadium has emerged online and Spurs fans are absolutely loving every bit of it.
The new stadium is a part of the Northumberland Development Project which also includes a number of new homes, a hotel, a community health centre and a dedicated Spurs museum.
The stadium is expected to almost double the capacity and vastly improve the experience of the fans, players and officials alike.
The project started almost two years ago with the demolition of the White Hart Lane, Spurs home ground since 1899.
It was supposed to be ready by the beginning of the season but a number of deadline revisions and delays have prevented the completion of the project on time.
But now the new stadium seems to be edging closer to completion as Spurs are reportedly discussing with UEFA about the possibilities of arranging their quarter-final match in the new stadium, should they manage to get past Borussia Dortmund on March 6th at the Signal Iduna Park.
However, the stadium is not likely to host any Premier League match anytime soon as Spurs have already confirmed that the North London derby will be played at Wembley.
As the speculations and rumours are piling up about the possible inauguration of the new stadium, aerial photographer Jason Hawkes decided to fly past the stadium and clicked some amazing pictures of it.
The bird’s eye view of the stadium looks absolutely stunning and seems to require only the finishing touches to host the inaugural match.

Spurs fans are obviously delighted to see the progress and simply cannot wait to experience the first match in their brand new home.
Till the stadium is ready, Spurs will continue to use Wembley as their home ground as they have been doing since the beginning of the 2017-18 season.
But despite playing away from home in a neutral venue, Spurs have managed to finish third in the Premier League.
And the professionalism has continued this season also as they are involved in the title race even when their talisman and England captain Harry Kane is sidelined with a ligament injury.
They are currently sitting third on the table, only 5 points behind from league leaders Manchester City with a game in hand.
If the stadium gets ready in time for their last few league games and possible Champions League ties, it will certainly be a huge boost for both the fans and the players alike.
However, there is no official word yet and the Spurs fans may have to wait a little longer.
