The stunning new arena cost around £1billion to build on the old site of the club’s former home White Hart Lane.

It has been hailed as one of the best stadiums in Europe for its stunning design and state-of-the-art facilities.

It has the largest single tier stand in the UK, the longest bar in Europe, and a retractable pitch.

Underneath the turf is an artificial pitch that will be used for the NFL games the stadium will host later this year and for many years to come.


When it was officially opened the capacity was 62,062, making the ground the second largest club football stadium in the country, only behind Manchester United’s Old Trafford.

Tottenham announced on Monday there will be a slight increase in the overall number of fans they can have in the ground.
