For the first time in history, Tottenham Hotspur’s new stadium will host an NFL match.
The Tottenham Hotspur Stadium is a football field in Tottenham, London and is the home of the Tottenham Hotspur club. It replaced the club’s old stadium, which was White Hart Lane. It has a capacity of 62,062 seats. Also, it is the third-largest stadium in England and is the largest stadium in London.
After the disastrous defeat against Bayern Munich, Tottenham Hotspur will have a trip to the southern coast to play against Brighton & Hove Albion in the 8th round of the Premier League. Although the Roosters area way from home, the monumental stadium will still have football, but it is American football. Recently, besides providing information about NFL Futures NJ news to the fans, the NFL home page and Tottenham have officially confirmed the fantastic news. It is an NFL match that would be held for the first time in history at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
The match between Oakland Raiders and Chicago Bears is going to take place on Sunday, October 6. It will be the first step to realize the vision and ambition of Tottenham president Daniel Levy for Spurs new home ground. As a superficial sports centre in London, this stadium possesses special designs, enough to meet the requirements of major events of many other sports such as NFL matches.
In 2017, before the new pitch is completed, Tottenham signed an agreement with the NFL, which will allow them to organize 1-2 American football matches every season for the next ten years. NFL is famous in England, and the organization of competitions in this tournament has both financial benefits for Tottenham while improving the reputation of the NFL in Europe. This could even lead to the creation of an NFL team in London, with the home ground being the current Spurs’ ground.
Alistair Kirkwood, the NFL CEO in the UK, told Sky SportsNews that the upcoming match would be an exciting new start for both NFL and the Tottenham Football Club. He said that is the vision of Levy, and it all depended on him ultimately. The idea of having an NFL pitch underneath a PremierLeague football pitch, when they had first learned about it, really made people admire.
Reportedly, Levy not only sold it to Tottenham but he also continued on a long journey. Alistair Kirkwood hopes he will be proud on Sunday when their team plays their first match here. He also confirmed that he was fortunate and honored to use the stadiums there.
Wembley has been a home for Tottenham, which is an extraordinary thing. At the moment, being able to share the field with a Premier League club, having it sown pitch and changing room is very interesting.
