    World Class Design

    Stadia design has evolved rapidly in recent years, recognising the significance of these public buildings and their ability to define and enhance urban areas.

    The new stadium will create what we believe will be one of the finest stadiums anywhere in the world for spectators, visitors and the wider community, delivering a major new landmark for Tottenham and London.


    Designed by leading stadium architects Populous, the key design improvements include:

    • A dramatic design – an asymmetrical design focussed towards the Southern ‘home end’ as the heartbeat of the new stadium.

    • A tight atmospheric stadium bowl – capacity of 61,000 with the largest single tier in the UK, the home southern stand seating 17,000.

    • A fully retractable pitch – to cater for NFL, concerts and a range of other events whilst protecting the integrity of the playing surface.

    • Dedicated facilities for the NFL – to cater for their requirements without in any way impacting upon the facilities tailor designed for football.

    • A sculpted appearance – wrapping and folding its way around the stadium before reaching the home end, where a glass façade arches upwards to reveal the magnificent single tier home stand.

    • A five-storey atrium space within the Home End of the stadium– that will gather and focus the home support before and after the match.

    • A curved roof, which melds together with the stadium structure – completed by a lightweight cable-net roof to create a graceful and elegant clean cover over the seating bowl.

    • A spectacular front door opening up onto the High Road – providing a glimpse of life within the stadium, designed to create a link and sense of arrival from the station and new Public Square being bought forward as part of regeneration to the West of the High Road.

    • A prominent entrance for the East Stand onto Worcester Avenue – framing a double height banqueting hall and revealing the Sky Lounge at high level.

    • First class conference and banqueting facilities – to enable the Stadium to be active 365 days a year.

    • An exceptional public square next to the Home end of the Stadium – offering a range of community activity zones and space for fan-themed activities, accessed by a series of staircases from the High Road with external lift access also provided.

    • A unique ‘Sky Walk’ – a visitor attraction for fans and the public alike, allowing people to climb the exterior of the building up to 40 metres high.

    The Fan Experience – designed to create an unrivalled atmosphere

    Pitch View - New Scheme

    We have always placed the fan experience and stadium atmosphere at the heart of our brief for the stadium architects.

    • 61,000 seating capacity – the largest Club ground in London.

    • A 17,000 seat single tier – the home southern stand - generating a ‘wall of sound’ and the largest in the UK.

    • Exceptional spectator experience – with uninterrupted views for everyone, comfortable modern seating, generous leg-room and spectators closer to the pitch than at any other comparable ground in the UK.

    • An inclusive experience for all – with superb facilities for supporters with disabilities and their companions and a range of viewing positions in every part of the ground. It will be the only stadium to allow for flexibility of seating which means that disabled fans can be seated with their families for certain matches.

    • A major new gathering space for home fans – within a five-storey high space at the home end, to provide a new focus for home supporters before and after the match.

    • An open food court hosted within the atrium at the Home end – as part of a significantly enhanced experience for every spectator on concourses and throughout, with a much wider choice of catering and retail options hosted in generous and welcoming concourse spaces.

    • The most technologically advanced offer – with wireless connectivity across the whole venue, using modern technology to enhance the fan experience, and flexibility to cater for future demands and developments. We know that the ‘game day’ experience for many begins long before the match starts and we also want to be able to enhance that experience.

    • Flexibility for the future – with sections of the seating bowl designed to accommodate areas of safe standing if the current licensing regulations change.

    • The first Stadium in the UK to be fully-sprinklered – enabling a much better range of finishes to be safely used throughout the Stadium, offering a more comfortable experience for spectators

    • A significantly enhanced hospitality offering – featuring a variety of new style lounges, Clubs, and innovative dining and match day experiences.

    • An exceptional new public square – to provide a focal point for supporters and the community, offering a range of activity zones and dedicated local events run by the Tottenham Hotspur Foundation.

    The NFL – with dedicated pitch and facilities

    The NFL will play a minimum of two games per year during a 10-year partnership at our new Stadium.  

    “We have an opportunity now to deliver one of the most unique sports, leisure and entertainment venues in the world, bringing together the EPL and NFL for the first time. The socio-economic benefits this will bring to the area will be immense and demonstrates our commitment to the regeneration of this priority borough in London.”  
    Daniel Levy, Chairman

    The new stadium has been designed for multi-use, including a structurally engineered fully retractable pitch – the first for any stadium in the UK – to ensure that the football playing surface is always in peak condition.

    Underneath the grass field will be a synthetic grass surface that would be used for NFL games and other events. This innovative solution also allows greater flexibility in the scheduling of games, reducing the set up time required to prepare the ground for other events.

    The seating bowl has also been designed to enable excellent sightlines to be achieved for the different formats of football and the NFL, without having to screen off rows of seats at the front of the lower tier, maintaining an excellent atmosphere for all sports and events.

    Dedicated facilities for the NFL – including a home locker room and media suite – are also provided such that the Club's facilities are never compromised by the need to cater for other uses.

    The NFL is well-known for providing a great match day experience which starts well before the action on the pitch. A Key feature of this is the Tailgate parties, which take place at selected venues close by the stadium and in surrounding open areas.

    Typically these include:

    • Appearances from NFL legends

    • Performances from team cheerleaders

    • Interactive NFL activities

    • A selection of the best American-style food

    Visitors and local residents will be able to engage in these vibrant activities and they will bring added economic benefits to the area.

    The NFL is, similarly to the Club, committed to providing projects that support the community. It will be running its NFL60 programme - a campaign which encourages kids to be active 60 minutes a day - to reverse the increase of childhood obesity.

    The NFL will also, for the duration of its contract, sponsor 3 places on the Foundation University Degree Course and will be supporting the community with tickets for locals.

    Bringing the NFL to Tottenham, will provide a direct economic impact on the tri-borough area (Haringey, Enfield, Waltham Forest) of £11.2m per year, while the economic impact on the London economy as a whole would be £37.8m per year.

    With the anticipated number of additional spectators being more than 180,000 people per year, the estimated spending will be £21.4m from spectators.

    With NFL being played in Tottenham, there will also be significant exposure of the Tottenham area to a “new” audience – with over 80% of NFL International Series season ticket holders coming from outside London.
