Tottenham Fans Ecstatic After Club Reveals Exciting New Stadium Event, But There’s A Catch
Tottenham appear to have taken a significant step closer to finally moving into their brand spanking new stadium after the club revealed that a fan event is scheduled to take place at the venue.
In a statement on the official website - tottenhamhotspur.com - the club said:
“We are delighted to be able to give 6,000 fans the chance to visit and explore the South Stand and podium areas at our new stadium during a specially-arranged familiarisation event on Sunday 16 December, 11am-3pm.
“The event will be open for all One Hotspur Season Ticket Holders to apply for one ticket each. Season Ticket Holders can apply for their tickets in groups, which will be considered as a single application – meaning the whole group will either be successful or unsuccessful in their application.”
However, Tottenham fans, who have already splashed the cash on expensive season tickets, must pay £1 for the privilege, as the club wants to test the stadium’s ticketing systems.
The exclusive event will allow fans to “familiarise themselves with the journey they will take on a home matchday,” while they’ll have access to Park Lane Square and Paxton Terrace, walk through the South Stand turnstiles, sample food, and have a drink at the Goal Line Bar, which at a whopping 65m is Europe’s longest bar.
Understandably, Spurs supporters have flocked to Twitter in their droves to express their excitement at the announcement.

Meanwhile, other fans were quick to point out the £1 charge.
Finally some positive stadium news but you couldn’t resist charging us £1 rather than letting us in for free (@eja491)
You’ve gotta apply and it costs a quid (@hacko1882)
An FFE. That's got a 'charge to attend' written all over it. £1 each to attend. 6 grand to test the turnstiles??? You couldn't make it up. Another money-making scheme by Levy, however small, is just another insult. (@KeithAnorak)
