08 July 2015|Tottenham Hotspur
Our local MP, Rt Hon David Lammy MP, has expressed his delight following the unveiling of our new scheme update.
Mr Lammy hailed the designs as a huge move forward for both the Borough and the Capital. He also welcomed the news that the new scheme would be offering more opportunities for local people and that it places Tottenham Hotspur right at the heart of the long-term regeneration of the area.
“This is a defining moment for the area,” said Mr Lammy. "It is a big step forward for Tottenham and a big step forward for London.”
In response to our announcement that agreement has been reached with the NFL to host a minimum of two games per year during a 10-year partnership at our new stadium, the Tottenham MP described it as: “A game changer – bold and ambitious.”
"It keeps Tottenham at the centre of international sport well into the 21st century,” he added.
