Ian Wright wowed by first visit to Tottenham Hotspur stadium

Arsenal legend Ian Wright has been left impressed by his first visit to the Tottenham Hotspur stadium. Wright played for Spurs’ bitter rivals Arsenal scoring 185 times in 288 appearances. His affiliation with the Gunners did not come in the way of his candid admission of the first-rate facilities available at Tottenham Hotspur stadium.

The 56-year-old was at the stadium to attend an event organized by Gillette and Football Beyond Borders. The BBC pundit took to his personal Instagram account to wax lyrical about the facilities on offer.

  “This place is magnificent and I cannot lie.”

Wright complimented Spurs on a job well done and also admitted to his jealousy at the facilities and features made available at the facility. Tottenham moved to the stadium towards the end of last season. The move finally occurred after a number of delays. Although there were initial hiccups, it is now considered one of the best stadiums in the country. It is also the largest stadium in London, eclipsing the Emirates.

Designed as a multi-purpose stadium, it features the world’s first dividing, retractable football pitch with a synthetic turf pitch underneath for NFL London Games. The name “Tottenham Hotspur Stadium” is temporary, with the intention being to sell the naming rights to a sponsor.  It is also the first and only stadium outside America designed for NFL games.

The official record attendance at the stadium is 61,104 for the Premier League fixture against Chelsea in December. The stadium recorded the highest attendance for a Women’s Super League match with 38,262 in the match against Arsenal Women in November.
