The Tottenham Hotspur Stadium is the third-largest football stadium in England and the largest club stadium in London.
When completed in 2019, it replaced Tottenham's original White Hart Lane home which had been in use since 1899. Tottenham's new home covers the site of the now demolished White Hart Lane and areas adjacent to it. The project was first conceived in 2007 and announced in 2008, but the plan was revised several times, and the construction of the stadium, beset by disputes and delays, did not commence until 2015.
The stadium was built in two main phases so that White Hart Lane could still be used during the 2016/17 season while construction was in progress. The first phase involved the building of the northern section of the stadium (including the North, West and East Stands), while the South Stand construction started in the second phase after White Hart Lane had been demolished.
Parts of the old White Hart Lane have been incorporated into the new stadium – crushed aggregate of the concrete foundation of White Hart Lane was mixed in with new concrete to create the floor of the concourse of the new stadium, and bricks from the East Stand were used for the Shelf Bar.
The stadium is designed to be a multi-purpose stadium and features the world's first dividing, retractable football pitch, which reveals a synthetic turf field underneath for NFL London Games, concerts and other events.
DID YOU KNOW?
The tiers of the stands are set at angles of up to 35 degrees, the maximum permissible in British stadium design.
