Tottenham have called time on their beloved White Hart Lane ground – but now they have a stunning new arena to play in.
The former stadium, scene of so many memorable matches over the decades, has been demolished with a larger, more modern venue built in almost the same location in North London.
Spurs spent a season playing at Wembley Stadium as construction of their new stadium continued, but 2018/19 sees them move into their new, 62,000 capacity home. It includes a one-tier home end similar to Dortmund’s Yellow Wall, complete with a fan plaza behind.
The new stadium was the latest piece in the jigsaw as Spurs have closed the gap on their rivals to become a major force in the Premier League and Champions League.
There is pedigree: Spurs were the first side to achieve the famed league and cup double in the 20th Century under the leadership of Bill Nicholson back in 1961. And two years later they were the first English club to win a major European trophy, the Cup Winners’ Cup.
Few fans will forget the famous UEFA Cup final victory under the lights at White Hart Lane in 1984 when keeper Tony Parkes was the hero in a penalty shoot-out against Anderlecht.
More recently the arrival of manager Mauricio Pochettino has sparked an upsurge in league fortunes. For the first time in decades Spurs have finished above deadly rivals Arsenal in the Premier League and have secured three successive top three finishes – competing toe to toe with the financial muscle of the big Manchester clubs.
To underline their growing strength, in 2017-18 Spurs beat both Champions League finalists Real Madrid and Liverpool at home.
