The fact that Tottenham’s Northumberland Development Project is well on course and is known to everyone in England and surely, the whole of England is in awe of the progress that Tottenham are making on and off the pitch.
Spurs’ construction of the new stadium is well underway and initially when the plans were revealed, it struck shockwaves within the country. Such was the plan in place. It was beautiful and breathtaking.
Tottenham recently made a huge step forward in obtaining permission to contest all their home matches next season at Wembley, after the Brent council offered their go-ahead for increasing the number of full capacity fixtures at the stadium next season. Spurs now continue to build towards the future, both in terms of squad and the stadium. The new stadium is being planned to be opened for the 2018/19 campaign.
The stadium will have 61,000 seats, which just slightly overtakes Arsenal’s Emirates stadium and will have the single-tier stand just 5 metres away from the goal line. It has also been said that the single-tier stand will be the largest in the country with 17,000 seats. The numbers are eye-popping and it surely is a massive step taken by the club in their long and illustrious history. The stadium will also have 9 floors, with a lot of unbelievable facilities and it is surely expected to set the mark for a modern football stadium.
It has also been said that the facilities within the stadium are set to be one of the best in Europe once ready for use and Tottenham will become one of the best in Europe off the pitch. On the pitch too, they don’t seem to be too far away. Despite losing the title to Leicester City last time out, they have managed to keep their spirits high and have now stitched together a consistent season and are just 4 points behind league leaders Chelsea, who fell to an embarrassing 2-0 defeat to Manchester United at Old Trafford.
With Tottenham being so close to the title and with the progress they have made off the field, they have caught the attention of the world media, who seemed to ignore Tottenham’s Northumberland project initially. However, the news slowly gained momentum and media from all over the world have poured in praises whenever they covered the news about the stadium under construction.
Catalan newspaper Sport (h/t Sport Witness) headlined a Tuesday article ‘Pochettino builds something big’, and say that on and off the pitch, the club are going through an impressive reconstruction. Sport believe that it is all the more impressive because of the Premier League’s tough competition.
Last month, Sport described the new ground as ‘The Last Wonder of London’. As good as it is to read, it is important to know that Tottenham’s work deserves such high praises.
Tottenham have finally managed to challenge Arsenal off the pitch and now that they have overtaken the Gunners on the pitch too, the times look good for Spurs now, and in the future as well.
