A New Home For Spurs
The new home will be a stadium for everyone, offering each and every fan an exceptional matchday experience. This will be London’s largest football club stadium with a capacity of more than 62,000 but with a seating bowl designed to place fans closer to the pitch than at any other comparable size stadium in the UK. Distances from the front row to the touchline range from 4.9 metres to 7.9 metres. The angle of the stands is set at up to 35 degrees and this, combined with the close proximity, will help connect fans to the play.
In the bowl, fans will enjoy high-density mobile connectivity and free WiFi and four giant HD screens, the largest in the UK, and a state-of-the-art sound system will ensure the delivery of pre-match, half-time and post-match entertainment, highlights and replays to the highest possible standard. The comfortable modern seating will offer generous leg-room and uninterrupted views of the pitch. In addition, the new stadium is fully compliant with the Accessible Stadia Guide and exceeds standards in many areas.
The design of the stadium bowl optimises the atmosphere created, ensuring the club maintains its tradition of having one of the most atmospheric homes in British sport. A 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’. An area at the front of this stand, as well as in the visiting supporters’ section, has been future-proofed for safe standing in the event that legislation changes.
Make Yourself At Home
The generous and open concourses are bathed in natural light from extensive glazed areas with contemporary polished concrete floors made using aggregate from White Hart Lane. Fans will see an unrivalled standard of finish using materials such as brushed steel, copper, European oak and quartz.
Supporters will have the freedom to move around the concourse from stand to stand so they can explore and meet fellow fans located in other stands. A Family Area concourse will offer a tailored experience for fans attending with children, situated in the North West corner.
Around the concourses are areas for pop-up experiences, including promotions and competitions, Legend appearances and other selected entertainment. There are also high quality wash rooms and plenty of them for all, including 30 accessible toilets and three Changing Places facilities.
For fans with sensory needs, a fully-equipped Sensory Suite has been incorporated to provide an environment that facilitates a graduated pathway to watching a live match. For supporters with access requirements, there will be designated accessible entrances with large passenger lifts to all levels.
London’s Vibrant Food Scene
The new stadium will feature over 60 food and drink outlets – along with The Market Place, a street food-style emporium in the South Stand – serving a wide range of food. Feature bars in the East and West Stands will create a destination for fans to meet up before and after the match.
Feature bars include:
The Dispensary (West Stand, Level 5) – Takes its name and design influence from the old Dispensary on the Tottenham High Road. The salvaged frontage of this building will be a feature of the Tottenham Experience.
The Shelf (East Stand, Level 1) – The Bricks have been salvaged from the East Stand of White Hart Lane whilst the metal work on the bar is inspired by the Archibald Leitch design for the old Shelf.
The White Hart (East Stand, Level 5) – Pays tribute to Spurs’ former home, with the land previously owned by Charrington’s Brewery.
Goal Line Bar
At the rear of The Market Place in the South Stand will be the 65 metre Goal Line Bar that runs the entire length of the goal line. Serving a wide range of beers, wines, ciders and soft drinks along with food items, this bar is the longest in the UK. Craft beer will be brewed on-site in their very own microbrewery and served from the unique and atmospheric tap room.
Driving Innovation – Connected, Cashless
The stadium has been designed with technology incorporated into the fabric of the building to enhance the fan experience, with free wi-fi in all areas and high-density mobile coverage. A new free mobile app will be available to help fans get the most out of their matchday and state-of-the-art turnstile systems will accept either Stadium Access Cards or via mobile ticketing on a smart phone. The well-connected cashless stadium will allow all payments to be made using either a contactless card or via a mobile phone to help speed up service.
