Our new ground could be called the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium rather than White Hart Lane if we start the new season without a naming rights deal.

Daniel Levy has been looking for a 20-year-deal which would bring in £20million a year, as the £800million stadium nears completion. It is hoped that we can play our home games at the stadium from next season onwards.

We have been in discussions with a number of parties and it had been hoped that a resolution could be reached this week. The minutes of a recent meeting between senior officials and members of the Tottenham Hotspur Supporters trust stated:

“DL explained that the stadium financing was not conditional on selling naming rights. THFC are in discussions but they will only contract when they are satisfied with the price, the tenure and the counterparty.”

If no deal is reached, then the new venue will be named as the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium. Italian giants Juventus went through a similar situation as their home ground was known as the Juventus Stadium for six years before they eventually struck a deal with financial services company Allianz in 2017.

The Premier League will write to clubs on Wednesday to ask clubs for their fixture plans for next season and thus we will have to reveal by next month whether we will be playing our home matches next season at the new ground.

At this stage, it is believed that we are hoping that our first four games of next season be played away from home, meaning that we are likely to play our first game at the new ground after the September international break.

According to the minutes (h/t Evening Standard), Levy said:

“there was no intention of activating any extension clause unless it was absolutely necessary. DL (Levy) stated he was confident, as far as was possible, that they would hit the build deadline.”

I’d personally prefer having our stadium named as Tottenham Hotspur stadium instead of anything else. If the club is not in dire need of the naming rights money, then why force ourselves into it and have the stadium named after some business concern!

Tottenham new stadium

Tottenham’s new stadium saw artificial lighting for the pitch being tested in the past week. The moveable lights are expected to help the pitch grow but there was no grass on the surface as per the video.

Football.london claims that the new pitch could be laid as early as October. The report adds that construction firm Mace revealed at a “Business Community Liaison Group” at Lilywhite House that the pitch would be laid in October.

The report adds that the dates for the test events would be revealed a month ahead of their schedule. The construction firm and club are certain that there would be no more delays regarding these events.

Football.london further claimed that an artificial NFL pitch has been installed at the base of our new home.

The latest revelations are good news for Tottenham fans who have been waiting for the stadium to be completed.

We all know that our first visitors were supposed to be Liverpool and we have been playing our Premier League home games at Wembley so far. Tottenham did play all their home games at Wembley last season as well and so, playing at this venue shouldn’t be a problem for the team.

Dele Alli

Tottenham will play their Carabao Cup Third Round clash against Watford at Stadium MK. The decision was taken with the help of the FA as Wembley is unavailable on Wednesday.

This would be our second home stadium this season after Wembley. Stadium MK will hold special memories for Dele Alli as we signed the youngster from MK Dons a few years ago.

The Englishman has become a crucial player for us and the midfielder spoke about returning to his old stomping ground.

The 22-year-old claimed that he tried to push the stadium to be selected for the clash against Watford.

Alli added that he was excited as the rest of the Tottenham players would visit Stadium MK. The 22-year-old had even hyped up the venue to his teammates.

It isn’t easy to make it to the top level and Alli added that his initial aim was to break into the first-team at MK Dons and then take it from there.

We moved swiftly to sign the youngster back then and it has paid off really well. The attacking midfielder hasn’t been brilliant for us in the ongoing campaign but the Carabao Cup clash in his old home could be the spark he needs.

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.
