Tottenham Hotspur Stadium
The new Tottenham Hotspur stadium has been praised by many as one of the finest in world football, and when you step through the turnstiles it is easy to see why. With nearly 30,000 more seats than the old White Hart Lane, the stadium’s 62,062 capacity makes for an atmosphere like no other, while its futuristic design ensures a panoramic view of the pitch for every fan.
The new stadium has been specifically designed with the matchday experience in mind, meaning every supporter feels up close and personal to the action. At 17,500 seats, the ground’s South stand is the largest single-tiered stand in the UK, with each and every chant reverberating around the ground thanks to the stadium’s innovative design.
Seats offer more comfort, are closer to the action and provide more space than at the old White Hart Lane, while the concourse areas have a distinctly modern feel about them, offering a wider selection of refreshment and retail options than ever before. This includes the new Spurs shop, which at 23,000 sq ft is the largest retail space owned by any club in Europe.
And that’s not all you have to look forward to when visiting the stadium. Throughout the ground are a series of ‘feature walls’ celebrating the club’s past, its fanbase, and the local area, all of which can be accessed via the concourse, which allows fans to move freely about the stadium. The new ground is built on the site of the old White Hart Lane, too, meaning fans can even stand over the penalty spot where so many Spurs legends have stood over the years.
With its world-class facilities and exciting new attractions, the new Spurs stadium represents the pinnacle of club football’s most innovative, modern and luxurious matchday experiences.
The Tottenham Hotspur Stadium has been carefully designed to give fans the ultimate matchday experience, with more comfortable seating and uninterrupted views of the pitch for every fan in the ground.
Distances from the front row to the touchline range from just 4.9 metres to 7.9 metres, while the angle of the stands is set at up to 35 degrees, making for a more intimate feel and really allowing you to connect to the play.
The stadium bowl has been built with a view to optimise the acoustics within the ground, allowing the Club to maintain its tradition of having one of the most atmospheric homes in British sport. In addition to this the impressive 17,500 single-tier South Stand, the largest in the UK, is more than 34 metres in height and will provide a ‘wall of sound’ whenever the players take to the pitch.
