Tottenham Hotspur’s state-of-the-art stadium is beginning to take shape as the construction teams race against the clock to get the ground ready for next season. Developers have now moved on to the next stage of the build – erecting the giant 600-tonne roof that will cover the 61,000 capacity arena.

Last week, Tottenham revealed more about the progress that’s been done over the past two months and posted a video on their official website, citing the seats being used in our new £800m stadium.

Each seat also has an installation deck that has to be made which is created using glass and nylon to make it strong. The two sections are then shared and put together, with the operators claiming that they can produce 500-600 seats per day.

Site manager Olly Clarke also explained the meticulous process of hauling the massive structure into the air.

“What we’ve got are two main bits,” Clarke was quoted in a report by Daily Star. The compression ring as we call it, which is basically like a big bicycle wheel, which goes over all the stands and connected on to it, all this spaghetti, which goes down to the inner part of the roof.”

“By making this inner part of the roof smaller, pulling these cables together, it then lifts up in the air to create the roof structure, which then carries the roof cassettes to make the roof.

“There are 10km of structural cable on the job and the hydraulics which feed the jacks there are 20km of hydraulic piping. The roof lift when we pull it up in the air will weigh 600 tonnes so it’s an immense lift.

“The roof itself will take two-three weeks to pull up into the air and during that time as we’re putting that immense force of 20,000 tonnes into these tension cables it will move slowly and slowly and slowly up into the air until it reaches the top.”

The Spurs Web released a video that features the latest updates on the construction site of the new stadium. The framework has got bigger on the new South Stand, while there is rapid development at the North, West and the East stands. The new home of the Tottenham foundation, i.e., Percy House, looks complete.

Toilets, kitchen areas and bars are currently being installed in the new stadium, while the hotel construction starts as early as possible in the New Year.

Check out the video to get an idea of the construction of the new Tottenham stadium.

Ryan Mason Tottenham

Ryan Mason

Former Tottenham star Ryan Mason’s football career came to a premature end after he picked up a skull fracture while playing for Hull City.

The former Spurs was facing Chelsea and hung his boots in 2018 but is adored by many fans.

Now 27, the midfielder shared a video of him scoring a goal for us four years ago and what a strike it was from the Englishman.

This was Mason’s first goal for Spurs and it came in a League Cup fixture against Nottingham Forest.

The midfielder might not have been the most gifted player ever but he always gave 100% on the pitch and his move to Hull City, unfortunately, did not work out.

Mason played for numerous clubs in the English system, serving stints at Millwall, Yeovil Town and Doncaster Rovers.

The former Spurs star also had one cap for the England national side in 2015 and a number of fans tweeted their love for the player after his post.

“Most entertaining”, “The ending…” – Some Spurs fans love latest advert featuring accommodation partner

Vorm Eriksen Tottenham

Tottenham posted a video of their tie-up with Hotels.com, our official accommodation partner, and it was an interesting video, to say the least.

Spurs players Christian Eriksen, Michel Vorm, Ben Davies and Juan Foyth participated in some “hotel-related” drills in the two-minute long ad.

It was fun to see Eriksen and co carrying luggage around an obstacle course while the Dane also dropped drinks glasses from his tray.

There were a few laughs too as Vorm wasn’t able to fold the quilt in the right manner and some of the fans saw the funny side of the video.

Tottenham haven’t started the season well and were lucky to get all three points against Brighton in our previous game. However, it was nice to see the players having a great time in the fun advert.

The video certainly was done pretty well and the ending is something to behold too.

Jack Grealish

Jack Grealish

Jack Grealish has signed a new five-year deal with Aston Villa that includes a huge release clause, according to the Sun.

The report adds that Tottenham offered £25million for the midfielder in the summer. But to sign him now, we would have to double the amount.

Grealish was one of the stars for the Villans last season but they missed out on promotion to the Premier League.

Villa aren’t doing well in the Championship as they lie 13th with 13 points from nine games. Grealish is yet to score for his boyhood club in the ongoing term.

With his selling price doubled, as per the report, some Tottenham fans weren’t sure about the club making a move for the player while a few blamed Daniel Levy for botching the transfer.
