The new Tottenham stadium

Whilst Spurs fans may feel as though their new ground took an eternity to build, we’re sure they’ll agree that the finished result was well-worth the wait.

In total, the new stadium is thought to have , which is a little more than the £789 million required to build Wembley.

It’s also double the original budget for the project, with the Spurs hierarchy having spent heavily in the pursuit of their dream stadium.

Cutting-edge tech is at the heart of this new ‘stadium of the future’ but there’s a few things about Pochettino side’s new dwellings that you may well not know.

Here are 4 quirky features of Tottenham’s new ground:

  1. A Cheese Room

Let’s start with the most surreal feature, which exists in the form of an exclusive cheese room for members and high-end clientele.

Known simply as the ‘H Club’ members can sign up for a hefty subscription fee of £15,000, although they’ll be required to purchase two tickets for a total expenditure of £30,000.

This will enable them to select their own specially sourced half-time cheeses, including some of the most unique and luxurious products from across the globe.

  • A Microbrewery

New White Heart Lane (NWHT) will also include another football stadium first, in the thrilling form of a microbrewery with a state-of-the-art beer delivery system.

A football hipster’s dream, this brewery uses equipment that can pour up to 10,000 pints per minute, which is ideal when catering for the half-time and post-game rush.

Whilst we’d expect to see other stadiums adopt this type of technology in the future, for now Spurs’ new ground remain the first and only location to take the plunge!

  • USB Ports in Seats

Spurs’ new stadium also offers exceptional 4G coverage throughout, meaning that spectators can connect online before, during, or after the game. This is particularly helpful if you like mobile or in-play betting; no longer will you be interrupted by poor signals when you’re trying to place those , which is good news!

Incredibly, designers have also included individual USB ports in premium seats, enabling supporters to charge their handsets and prevent their phones from running out of battery over the course of 90 minutes.

  • An In-house Bakery

We close with one of our personal favourites, and one that really highlights the attention to detail that defined Spurs’ new stadium plans.

We’re speaking, of course, about the stadium’s very own in-house bakery, which is capable of producing artisan breads and pastries for every food outlet in the stadium. So, whether you’re in a VIP box or a general admission area, you’ll be able to enjoy delicious pastries and treats during the half-time break.

For those of us used to soggy pies, all we can really say to this is wow because having access to such leading outlets adds a unique dimension to the typical stadium experience.

Tottenham’s new ground is a blazing a trail for all others to follow in the future, Daniel Levy and co have set the bar and to explore the new ground in more detail, .

Ditching a corporate job to follow a dream isn’t easy, but when football comes calling, who can say no? Been following the beautiful game since 1998.

Jose Mourinho is interested in securing the striker’s services in the January transfer window- with Harry Kane ruled out for the rest of the season with a hamstring injury.

Edinson Cavani

The Uruguayan superstar’s contract at PSG runs out this summer and the player looks set to leave after a trophy-laden 7 seasons in the French capital.

Having joined from Napoli in 2013, Cavani has gone on to make 290 appearances for PSG scoring 198 goals. (h/t Whoscored)

Mauro Icardi’s fine form has led to Cavani’s appearances being limited this season. Premier League rivals Manchester United and Chelsea are also interested in signing the 32-year-old star. (h/t Daily Mail)

The transfers of Krzysztof Piatek and Ze Luis look to be off, with Spurs set to pursue other alternatives.

Cavani, who will be 33 next month still has a couple of good seasons under his belt and should prove to be an excellent backup for Harry Kane.

PSG are likely to sell the striker for a cut-price deal in January rather than lose him for a free in the summer.

Tottenham were in the market for a striker and were offered the chance to sign the 28-year-old. The deal seems to have hit a roadblock with complications arising in the player’s ability to obtain a work permit.

The Cape Verde international signed for Porto from Spartak Moscow in the summer of 2019. He has scored 7 goals in 17 appearances for the Portuguese giants this season. (h/t Whoscored)

Ze Luis

Ze Luis is managed by Jorge Mendes, who also happens to be Mourinho’s agent. Mendes has already taken Gedson Fernandes from Benfica to Spurs this month in an 18-month loan worth £3.8million.

Spurs are in the midst of an injury crisis and with Kane out, have no fit senior striker in the squad. With Champions League qualification a necessity, the club has had to turn to the transfer market for solutions.

AC Milan striker Krzysztof Piatek was linked with a move to North London. That deal is now understood to be unlikely given the costs involved.

It now looks like Ze Luis will not be the answer to Mourinho’s striker woes this January.

Japhet Tanganga hints at Spurs contract extension

The youngster who made his Premier League debut against Liverpool last week has carried over his good form into the FA Cup replay against Middlesbrough. He was incisive and showed the maturity of a seasoned veteran in an assured display.

The 20-year-old who can play both at centre-back and right-back has been a bright spot in an otherwise unreliable defensive unit this season

Japhet Tanganga

The defender’s contract has been a talking point recently as the one-year deal he signed in the summer expires at the end of the season. It is believed that the Tottenham do have the option to extend his deal by an extra year.

With the club looking to tie down the player for the foreseeable future, his comments on staying at Tottenham for a long time will have gone well with the Spurs faithful.


“The club means a lot to me, having been with them for so long. Of course I’d love to stay with them as long as I could and go on until I retire.

The youngster put the ball in the club’s court and stated that he is committed to performing to the best of his ability.

“But that’s for the club to deal with me and for me to focus on the pitch and deliver as much as I possibly can.”

This should come as good news to Jose Mourinho who has been very vocal regarding the defender’s performances. With a defensive rebuild on the cards, the emergence of Tanganga will come as a blessing to the Portuguese manager.
