Tottenham stadium and pitch ‘looking fine’ during lockdown according to groundsman
Tottenham Hotspur groundsman Darren Baldwin has provided a glimpse of the club’s stadium and pitch during the coronavirus lockdown (h/t Football.london).
Spurs were due to host the North London derby for the first time at our stunning stadium this past weekend. But the Premier League is currently suspended because of the coronavirus pandemic.
During this enforced hiatus, our top groundsman Darren Baldwin shared an image of the stadium and the pitch, showing that he and his team have been keeping things in perfect condition during the lockdown.
Baldwin, the club’s head of playing surfaces and estates, posted an image on Twitter on Sunday with the caption: “On a day when we should have hosted our first #NorthLondonDerby the stadium pitch is doing just fine.”

Our stadium is being used in the battle for the coronavirus. Parts of the stadium have been turned into a hospital unit and a coronavirus test centre, while the ‘pitch pocket’ is being used as a food distribution hub.
Recently, our stadium was named the Venue of the Year 2020 in the TheStadiumBusiness Awards.

Baldwin and his team look to be doing a great job keeping the pitch in pristine condition for when the season resumes.
As of now, there is little indication as to when the Premier League campaign will restart. At the time of suspension, Tottenham were eighth in the table, seven points off of Chelsea in the fourth place.
