Tottenham Hotspur Stadium finishes second in Stadium of the Year awards

Our impressive new home, the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, has impressed both fans and rivals since its opening last year. The arena fell just short of winning the popular vote at the Stadium of the Year awards.

According to Football.london, our home ground came in second place after garnering more than 40 percent of the total votes. We received a total of 12,795 votes with people from all over the world chipping in to express their admiration for the stadium.

The arena gathered around 1500 votes from Indonesia while also obtaining around 1000 each from Slovakia and Argentina. Unfortunately, it was not enough as we were pipped to the top by The Puskas Arena in Budapest, Hungary. The 67,215-seater was opened in October 2019 to host the Hungarian national team.

The Tottenham Hotspur Stadium finished in the top five in both categories

Having lost out in the popular vote, Tottenham also faced disappointment in the jury vote. The Japan National Stadium earned the jury of judges’ vote as the best in the world while we came in at fifth. In what can be counted as a victory of sorts, Spurs’ home voted higher in terms of innovation than any other stadium in the top 10 list.

The Stadium of the Year has now been running for a decade. It is a non-commercial initiative that is aimed at appreciating the best stadiums opened every year.

Considering the fact that we have competed against 21 stadiums from 19 countries, finishing in the top five in both categories should be considered an achievement.

Home sweet home!

Spurs’ impressive new home was opened in April last year with an initial attendance of 62,062. 148 seats were added to the North and South stands in August, increasing the capacity to 62,214. Earlier this season it was revealed that 89 more seats are set to be added, bringing its capacity to 62,303.
