Notes To Editor (About Tottenham Hotspur)

Guns N’ Roses joins an impressive list of events that are due to be staged at our new stadium, which includes long-term partnerships with the NFL and Saracens to stage matches, the third and final Rugby League Ashes test between England and Australia in November next year and European Professional Club Rugby’s Heineken Champions Cup and European Rugby Challenge Cup finals in 2021.

  • A fully retractable grass pitch that reveals an artificial surface underneath, enabling the staging of other major sporting and entertainment events, with partnerships already agreed with the NFL and Saracens to stage matches in Tottenham
  • The first UK stadium to house its own microbrewery, the longest bar in Europe, 65 different food and drink outlets and is fully cashless
  • The largest football club retail space in Europe including a museum and incorporating historic listed buildings
  • A 17,500-seat single tier stand – the largest in the UK
  • First class conference and banqueting spaces
  • Only stadium in the world outside the United States that is purpose built for Premier League and NFL matches including dedicated entrances, as well as bespoke dressing rooms, medical and media facilities for either sport

As part of the wider scheme, the Club has to date already delivered:

  • The London Academy of Excellence Tottenham – a new state-funded Sixth Form, financially supported by the Club and delivered in partnership with Highgate School, bringing expertise and first-class teaching from eight further top independent schools, giving the area’s brightest students the best possible access to leading Universities
  • A 78,000 square foot Sainsbury’s store at Northumberland Park – employing 280 colleagues from the local area
  • The Cannon Road Development – 100% affordable, 222 new homes and the new Brook House Primary School on the site of an old rubber factory
  • Berland Court – An affordable housing development nearby Northumberland Park rail station, incorporating the relocation of a Jehovah’s Witness Kingdom Hall and a Club merchandise store

Furthermore, the Club has created 2,762 new jobs for local people as a direct result of its ongoing new stadium development scheme and sport-led regeneration of the area. Jobs have been delivered across a range of industries, including retail, education, construction, hospitality, IT and security, with all going to local people. Once complete, the stadium development scheme will have created 3,500 new jobs and pump circa £300 million into the local economy each year – almost double the impact of our previous stadium.
