hmmmmmm,clear as mud,we dont even know the total cost of the build,whether that includes hotels,housing,other bits of high st,how much we paid for pre-end of construction (i mean we bought a shitload of load of land,cranes etc,before loans were announced).We will never see the cost of the NFL add-ons IMO,Did it cost 50m or 200m?income from NFL and match days,we will probably never know the amounts.As for will it be re-invested on THFC,I am hugely sceptical.Worth it for ENIC?definetly,worth it for thfc and the fans who ultimately fund the project?somehow I doubt it.Must be worth the money eh?
As reported in the Evening Standard, it was announced in April that Saracens had struck a five-year deal with Spurs to play their annual ‘Big Game’ at the club’s new £1billion arena, which will also host NFL matches in future.
"I’m really looking forward to going down there, the boys have been down there, and they’ve said it’s worth every penny of the billion pounds it cost," Sanderson told the Evening Standard.
"When we started using the bigger stadiums people said we wouldn’t get any crowds, then we started getting 60,000, 80,000, and these younger lads that are coming through – they won’t get that kind of experience - for some of them it’ll be the biggest game they’ll play ever."
