Tottenham have ended an era of incredible journey as they kicked the ball for one last time on the White Hart Lane pitch when they hosted Manchester United last weekend. The boys marked a memorable end to life at the Lane as they beat the Red Devils 2-1, thanks to Victor Wanyama and Harry Kane. Incredibly, Harry will remain the last Tottenham player to have scored at White Hart Lane and Wayne Rooney will be remembered as the last ever goal scorer at the beautiful ground.
The destruction of the White Hart Lane began within 24 hours of Tottenham’s game against United, as the construction of the new stadium is happening at a rapid pace. Though it is sad to see the club depart the White Hart Lane, the new stadium should give everyone a smile on their face as it is set to be one of the best in Europe.
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.
As we gear up for life at the new stadium, here are the pictures that were taken during the demolition of the beautiful White Hart Lane.
