      It is.....the NFL one is lower, although I'm not sure that's permanent either.

      I'd imagine it'll stay no matter what, it'll be the surface used for 'other events' too.

      Re the talk of retractable pitch being ready for season#1.
      This is from the designers and I have highlighted the pertinent part from their gumpf.

      http://static.burohappold.com/media/2016/07/Northumberland-Development-Project.pdf
      So instead, we proposed a pioneering
      solution by which the pitch will split into
      three sections before retracting below the
      stand.

      We’ve designed the front three rows of
      the South stand to be removable so that
      the pitch has room to descend beneath
      them. The edges of the pitch itself will
      then drop vertically downwards to create
      space around its perimeter, allowing
      the two outer sections to slide laterally
      outward and effectively dividing the
      pitch into three sections. These then slide
      longitudinally into slots beneath the stand,
      fitting around the required permanent
      support structures.

      As well as creating a bespoke engineering
      solution for this unique pitch,
      BuroHappold liaised closely with the club
      and wider design team to phase work on
      the stadium to minimise impact on the
      fans as much as possible. Our design for
      the sliding pitch will aid this no end, as it
      will allow for the main 17,000 seat stand –
      the largest of its kind in the UK – to remain

      in operation throughout the duration of
      the work. This means that fans will be able
      to continue to attend matches, and the
      club won’t lose revenue.

      Just copying what I have read.;) maybe i am not reading it right??


      The pdf is dated july 2016,maybe this is an old outdated comment?

      Hewlett Packard Enterprise to support technology vision for new stadium
      Posted on 11 July 2017 - 11:55

      The Club has selected Hewlett Packard Enterprise (NYSE: HPE) as its official IT Networking and Wireless Infrastructure Partner for our new, world-class stadium. Set to open in 2018, it will be one of the most technologically advanced stadia ever built, delivering an enhanced event day experience for all visitors.

      The new state-of-the-art venue will be the largest football club stadium in London, with a capacity of 61,559 and will also host other major sport and entertainment events such as NFL games and concerts. Since planning for the new stadium began, the Club has been committed to driving innovation and using modern technology to enhance the in-venue experience for every visitor. As a result, the stadium’s IT infrastructure is being incorporated from the ground up, enabling connectivity across the entire venue for visitors and flexibility to cater for future demands.

      The Club is installing Aruba, a Hewlett Packard Enterprise company, networking solutions, with support from HPE’s Pointnext services organisation, to meet its current and future technology demands.

      Sanjeev Katwa, our Head of Technology, said: “Creating a technology infrastructure to support an enhanced visitor experience requires solutions that can meet the growing demands of visitors that come to our new stadium. We believe Hewlett Packard Enterprise can support us on the journey in building one of the most technologically advanced stadiums in the world.”

      Marc Waters, MD, U.K. and Ireland, HPE said: “Tottenham Hotspur realise that being digital from the ground up is imperative to transform its fan experience. We are thrilled to support Tottenham Hotspur in this journey, using our intelligent edge solutions and Pointnext expertise to help build the foundation for a truly digital stadium. Our partnership with the Club will help enable future innovation and the ability to provide an enriched, unique environment for stadium visitors.”

      I wonder if at any point during the process someone thought "wouldn't it be a good idea to finish these 2 projects simultaneously"

      Seems silly to try and finish both at the same time, they have timescale on their side for one of the projects and the other is incredibly rigid. I can imagine that there are sizeable bonuses for finishing this thing on time, judging by the speed at which these blokes are putting it up.

      serious answer is it is common practise on some sites,guess it avoids evidence of balls ups,its why you cant take cameras into PL games,you may inadvertently film sissoko on the pitch,& theres no need for that.
