Latest Tottenham news: Spurs fans split regarding naming of new stadium

Tottenham are inching closer to moving into their new home but have slammed suggestions that the ground would be called “The Nike Stadium” (h/t Sun).

Spurs released a statement confirming the dates of two test events and who our first opponents would be.

A decision to name the stadium hasn’t been taken yet, however, beIN Sports presenter Richard Keys claimed the venue could be sponsored by Nike.

The Sun quoted the presenter saying:

“I believe I am right in saying the first league game will be played April 6th, Brighton the opposition.

“And that stadium I can exclusively reveal will be called ‘The Nike Stadium’.”

However, the report claims that there are no such plans to name the stadium after the sportswear giants, despite them being our kit manufacturers.

Fans split regarding stadium naming

This would not be the first time that a stadium would be named after its sponsors. This is a practice widely followed in the US and of course, there are examples of the Etihad and the Emirates in the Premier League.

Naming the stadium after a sponsor would provide us with additional revenue coming into the club, however, White Hart Lane certainly has a nostalgia related to it.

Some Tottenham fans weren’t exactly open to selling off the stadium’s naming rights and shared their concerns on Twitter.
