The issues that have plagued the development of the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium have circled around the club ever since the project was announced in 2012.
To the detriment of fellow clubs in the football league, Spurs have had to compromise with their tenancy of Wembley.
A date for the opening hasn’t been conclusively forthcoming, with continuous setbacks over the past two seasons.
The cost of construction has been spiralling, with Spurs having to recently borrow a further £237 million to complete the project.
On the official Tottenham website, the stadium outline certainly seems impressive, with the site even boasting the largest club store in Europe
“The new stadium has been designed from the outset for multi-use, including a structurally engineered fully retractable pitch – the first for any stadium in the UK – to ensure that the football-playing surface is always in peak condition.
Underneath the grass field will be a synthetic grass surface that would be used for NFL games and other events. This innovative solution also allows greater flexibility in the scheduling of games, reducing the setup time required to prepare the ground for other events.”
Other features include a £15,000 Cheese Room, a Manchester City-patented Tunnel Club for the more eccentric of visitors, and an in-house bakery.
Some lucky people were allowed a sneak peek inside the impressive new ground ahead of its official unveiling, the footage available to watch below, and the new Tottenham Hotspur Stadium seems on course to compete with the very best homes in Europe.
