Daniel Levy, Chairman, was joined on the construction site of the Club’s new 61,000-seater stadium by Mark Waller, Executive Vice President International of National Football League (NFL) on Tuesday.

NFL Executives have been in Tottenham throughout the week for detailed discussions centred on what will be London's biggest Premier League club venue and will boast purpose built facilities for teams of both sports.

The 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 plans to create a major sports, leisure and entertainment venue.

This week, Mr Waller saw first-hand the progress being made on site.

He said: “It is encouraging to see the new stadium starting to take shape and it certainly whets the appetite for our games here. Our relationship with the club and the Tottenham community is a very important part of our future plans in the UK. We are excited to see the full regeneration plan come to fruition as a key part of creating a great experience for our teams and fans."

Daniel Levy said: "We are delighted to host our friends from the NFL for detailed stadium discussions and for them to see first-hand the work in progress. We have exciting times ahead and our partnership with the NFL, which will see them bringing their own brand of football to Tottenham, is something which will add even more vibrancy to this part of North London."
