There was an enormous development on Thursday morning at the construction site of Tottenham Hotspur’s stadium. There are now 1,600 people working on the enormous site in Tottenham, with work taking place round the clock in order to get the ground ready for the 2018/19 season.
Also, the added pressure of hosting the first NFL game, the Seattle Seahawks vs the Oakland Raiders on October 14, means that the pace of the work has to increase day by day.
According to Football.london, the final piece of the compression ring has been lifted into place and that has seen the outer ring of the new stadium fully complete. It is fantastic news for the club and the fans, as work will finally start taking place to lift the stadium’s roof on to the compression ring.
Spurs chairman Daniel Levy has claimed that the raising of the roof this month would be a vital indicator that the stadium project is coinciding with the time scale of its inauguration before the start of the new season.
There is no doubt that the Spurs players have settled down well into their temporary home at Wembley. The game against Newport County in the FA Cup ended perfectly as Mauricio Pochettino celebrated his 200th game in charge of the club with a broad smile.
Pochettino has often spoken of the new ground’s ability to send us into Europe’s elite. So that comes as an added pressure for the workers to finish their job before the given date. Despite us settling in at Wembley, our fans are very optimistic regarding the construction of the new stadium.
The last time out, our club released a video of the world’s first retractable pitch at our new stadium. The retractable pitch is indeed one of its kind and one of the biggest reasons why our club were successful in convincing the NFL that American Football and British Football could be played in the same venue without much fuss.
It is truly a great effort by Mr.Levy and his team to ensure the work is being completed on time, with the fans across the world being kept up to date regarding the progress. I just hope the work gets completed according to the schedule so that our new season starts in the brand new £850m stadium.
