If you only see one picture of the Spurs new stadium today, make it this one

The moment that Spurs fans have been waiting the best part of two years for, has finally become a reality. It will go down as a monumental day in the history of the club, having officially moved to their new stadium, the Tottenham Hotspur stadium.

The stadium is shaped as an asymmetrical bowl, with stand influences coming from the “Yellow Wall” of Dortmund and an external appearance influenced by Bayern’s Allianz Arena.

The stadium also features a golden cockerel on the roof, which was made from a 3-D scan of the original, including a dent made on it by an air rifle shot from Spurs and England legend, Paul Gascoigne.

The new stadium has a capacity of 62,062, which is the second highest in the league, falling short to Old Trafford’s 75,643 capacity. Tottenham’s temporary home for the last season and the beginning of the current season, Wembley stadium, could house up to 90,000 fans. The playing surface measures 105m by 68m, similar to the dimensions at Old Trafford and Wembley. The stadium is also allocated to host non-football events such as rugby games and music concerts.

Other features include a retractable pitch, an in-house bakery, a microbrewery, Michelin star dining, a SkyWalk attraction, ample parking spaces, higher seating capacity for disabled fans and much more.

Unveiled with a flamboyant display of fireworks, the stadium is a thing of beauty. Simply put, the Tottenham Hotspur stadium is just breathtaking look at.

It is a masterpiece in architectural design and engineering that has raised a lot of eyebrows, for all the right reasons. One cannot do enough justice to this spectacle by simply describing it.

And if there is one photo of the stadium you are going to check out today, make sure it is this one released by the club last night –

Dubbed the “New White Hart Lane”, Tottenham took to their new turf for the first time on April 3, 2019, in a midweek league fixture against Crystal Palace. Son Heung-min made history that night by becoming the first player ever to score at the new stadium, guiding the Lilywhites to a 2-0 in a dominant display, with Eriksen scoring the second. This result also bolstered their push for automatic Champions League qualification, with things looking tight for 3rd and 4th place.

If this result is anything to go by, then the Spurs will be looking forward to playing at their new stadium full-time next season, hoping to attract new signings continuing to play thrill-a-minute football and win silverware that’s been a long time coming.

Everyone associated with the club believes that their new home will “spur” them on to achieve greater heights.
