The next step in our transfer from White Hart Lane to our new stadium has taken place as our iconic ground has been taken off from the Ordnance Survey maps while the ground for the new stadium gets updated.
The Tottenham management has been constantly sharing updates and images of the new stadium construction, which is going to cost somewhere in the region of £800million and will use a part of the old ground which was such a historic venue.
The Lane was our home for 118 years and the last game at the ground saw us beat Manchester United. We are playing our home games this season at Wembley and we will shift to the new 61,000+ seater as soon as the work is complete, which is slated to end before the start of the next season.
Ordnance Survey provides the most up-to-date maps for Britain, and have removed the Lane from their maps.
The Evening Standard carried quotes from the organisation as they shared their plans:
“We usually share stories about our teams adding new features to the map, such as the Queensferry Crossing or even a whale, but we also have to remove features from our database,” the organisation shared on their official blog.
They also added who would be in charge of removing the stadium from the map and that the said person would regularly visit the new stadium as work progresses.
“London-based surveyor Tony Killilea was recently tasked with removing a football stadium from the map.
“Tony and the team will be visiting regularly over the next 12 months as Tottenham build their new 61,000 capacity stadium, which is due to open for the 2018-19 football season, to ensure that it is logged in our database too.”
Our stadium will be one of the best in England, if not the world, and will feature some of the best user experiences in the world of football. Hopefully, we will be able to provide a great home for the team, who have struggled to adapt to Wembley.
We are yet to win in the Premier League this season at our current home and that has to change quickly if we are to end up winning a trophy or two this season.
