The Tottenham Hotspur Stadium is one of the most impressive venues available within English football and perhaps the entire sport, which is perhaps to be expected as it is one of the newest of stadia to have been built in recent times.
Consisting of 62,062 seats, the venue is the second largest in the English Premier League at the moment, with Manchester United’s Old Trafford the only stadium bigger in the division, whilst Wembley Stadium has the capability of having more fans in attendance for a single event.
However, it could be argued that whilst the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium has set the standard for fans attending the various sporting and musical events that are held there, with NFL matches regularly taking place each year in north London, there are a number of special features inside and around the venue that helps to make it the standard that all sports teams will hope to achieve in the future.
The technology that has been made available at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium is of the highest level and one that should become the norm for any sporting venue that is created in the future. There are a number of TV monitors available to punters who can watch pre-match build-up and events that may be happening during the game whilst queuing up for the food and drink on offer, whilst there are also a number of Wi-Fi and Bluetooth access points available.
We all know that being connected to the internet is extremely important for individuals who attend matches, as they may want to take selfies, pictures and videos of the action or just their experience, whilst others may be looking at betting opportunities as betting.co.uk shows there are a number of great sites to use via their comprehensive reviews. This is why it is important that 1,641 different Wi-Fi points and 700 Bluetooth beacons are made available.
Indeed, these rather small and miniature additions will make a world of difference to the overall experience had, thus helping it to reach the standard that many would expect.
Food and Drink
Briefly mentioned, the food and drink that is on offer at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium is also another reason why this sporting venue has set the standard for future builds and developments.
Some fans will want to experience a lot more than just the event that they have attended, whilst many will also have certain tastes and requirements that will make the day as special as it should be, with tourists also amongst those who may visit the stadium.
This can be in the form of having a pint of beer before, during and after the match and with three pub-style bars available (including the 65-metre bar that is Europe’s longest), the ultimate matchday experience can be felt by many.
Add in the fact that there is a range of food options and numerous shopping outlets that can be visited, there is a lot more to the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium than what a traditional venue would have.
Architecture & Skywalk Attraction
As alluded to, the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium is more than a football club stadium as it has proven to be a tourist attraction as well as a home for other sports. A lot of the reasons for this is down to the state-of-the-art architecture that has been used.
Having been designed by Populous, the stadium has been built with fans in mind as there is not an area of the stadium that may restrict sight (like the old White Hart Lane had), whilst fans are also closer to the pitch than ever before and then any other ground in the country.
In addition to the way the stadium has been designed, there has been a focus on the “home” stand as the venue has been designed like a bowl, which will then help send the noise and atmosphere being created in that area to travel throughout the stadium.
Let’s not forget, the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium has also managed to set the standard for sporting venues as it features a fully retractable pitch, meaning it can be replaced and accommodate the NFL matches that regularly take place at the stadium each year.
If the architecture was not a big enough reason for tourists to visit the stadium, then the Skywalk attraction that is available to go on will certainly be a huge draw. People will be able to scale the stadium and head to the top where they will be able to look down to the pitch. Breath-taking views of London are available to witness and experience as they stand approximately 50 meters above the pitch.
