The attention to detail is astonishing, superior to the Allianz, and, inevitably, older venues such as those mentioned in Spain, but the feature that commands most attention is the vertiginous South Stand. A deafening call-and-response commenced within five minutes, the sound starting deep in the lungs, the noise from 17,000 throats rolling down from the heights, racing across the pitch and returning with vigour. The architects Populous made the key (if obvious to football fans) decision of keeping the rake as steep as possible, ensuring the fans are close to the pitch, maximising the noise. Spurs have built in the capacity to accommodate a safe standing section, if the law changes, but the whole of the South Stand stood throughout. When Son opened the scoring ten minutes into the second half, the South Stand dissolved into a writhing, euphoric human mass. As the great ends of English football go, the South Stand is an immediate classic, the benchmark for all future developments.

Skipping over the 3rd-floor button labelled Directors Box, I pressed 4th floor for H Club, and I could feel the child within me getting so excited but then the doors opened and...
I somehow found myself in the tunnel, a few steps from the pitch!It took a few seconds for my eyes to adjust and figure out why I was looking over green turf, then a few more seconds pondering if I should run out. It's probably best that the lift doors closed before I could make a decision.

I’ll look out on Ticket exchange , I only have access to one card , my daughters , and a mate used it for Huddersfield , and they’re print at home , so the name is small , and the only looking for the scan “thingy” to go through .
Does it matter on location . If it was top of the south stand , there is no Stannah nor Oxygen stations

Thank fuck for that, I didn't realise until now that the thing I'd been missing all these years going to WHL was the opportunity to store my own wine. I could have had a nice glass of chardonnay if I'd wanted to lob out £15,000 a season (cup games extra),rather than going to the Brickies for a few pints of Guinness and a sing song with mates.........Jesus.

Tottenham Hotspur’s new £1 billion stadium will have the highest business rates bill of any football ground in the country, new data shows.
The north London club will be forced to hand over £3.7 million this year in rates, more than any other club in the UK, after tax officials said the ground had a rateable value of £7.19 million.
Rates bills are calculated on a rateable value, which is determined by the Valuation Office Agency assessing each business premises in the country.
Spurs leapfrog arch rivals Arsenal, with a rateable value of £6.13 million, followed by Manchester United, Manchester City and Liverpool, according to official data calculated by rates specialists Altus Group.

The club’s 62,062-seater stadium, which has its own micro brewery and cheese room, also has a higher rateable value than Wembley Stadium
But, over in east London, West Ham will continue to enjoy the benefits of the taxpayer picking up the rates bill for its London Stadium home.
The club pay the former Olympic Stadium owners just £2.5 million a year, meaning the rates bill of £1.6 million is paid by E20 – a joint venture between the London Legacy Development Corporation and the Mayor of London.
West Ham will pay just £282,942 in rates for the exclusive office and retail space it uses.
Elsewhere, Sunderland’s Stadium of Light has the highest rateable value of any ground outside the Premier League, with a value of £3.53 million.

Manchester United beat rivals Manchester City, with a rateable value of £6.1 million for Old Trafford, versus £4.65 million for the Etihad Stadium, and on Merseyside, Liverpool’s Anfield is nearly double the value of Everton, with a rateable value of £4.4 million.
Robert Hayton, head of UK business rates at Altus Group, which calculated the data, said: “Rateable values for football stadia and grounds are calculated using gross receipts, rather than local property values based on what league the club play in at the relevant [valuation date].”
He added: “Historically the financial success or otherwise of a club closely follows its performances on the field, but in recent times the ability to attract a wealthy financial backer has been just as important in a club’s ambition to grow.”
At Spurs, the redevelopment of White Hart Lane has seen its rateable value soar nearly 200% from £2.5 million.

The public will be given a say on controversial plans to rename a train station near Tottenham Hotspur’s new stadium after it was revealed the proposal was at an advanced stage after intensive lobbying by the club.

The Guardian reported in March that White Hart Lane station was to be rebranded after the football club lobbied the London mayor, Sadiq Khan, and Transport for London (TfL). The transport body had been insisting the club should pay more than £14.7m for the privilege, in the face of vigorous resistance from Spurs.

Have to say..... who gives a fuck what it's called....?

Also if they dont want to attract people to the area who bring cash for resident businesses..... whose gonna loose out...?

They dont want to make it easier for away fans to get to games?

Seriously, fuck TFL.
Personally I dont understand wanting to change it,the costs,the heritage you would have to be a moron to not know what station to get off at,are we changing tottenham hale,northumberland park,seven sisters??To me it just smacks of Levy trying to lose the old name of the previous stadium to his preferred choice.

I smell an opportunity to add extra £££'s to a naming rights deal somewhere further down the line. Leave White Hart Lane alone.
