They were joined on site by Mark Waller, NFL Executive Vice-President, as well as the Club's Executive Director Donna-Maria Cullen.

Next year will mark the start of our 10-year partnership that will see NFL International Series matches staged at our new home, which will boast purpose built facilities for teams of both sports including dedicated entrances, dressing rooms and media facilities.

London's biggest Premier League club stadium will also feature a retractable grass field with an artificial surface underneath that will be used for NFL games as part of the Club's commitment to creating a major sports and entertainment venue. Watch the video below…

 


Roger Goodell said: "The new Tottenham Hotspur stadium is clearly going to be a world-class venue. We are very pleased with how closely we have been able to work with the Club, and are optimistic that the broader regeneration plan will make for an extraordinary experience for NFL fans."

Daniel Levy said: "It is always a pleasure to welcome the NFL to Tottenham and for them to see the vision that we share becoming a reality right in front of us. We have worked closely with them throughout this project and their involvement will play a significant part in helping us create one of the most compelling venues for sports and entertainment in the world, right here in Tottenham."
