They have taken the massive crane out of Spurs new stadium now so it cant be too far away.
The Mr Av videos have shown there to be nothing but cherry pickers for nearly a month now.

Rumoured to have a few women’s/academy matches in mind for one of the test events which should be soon, but appears it may be an U23 match as to not disrupt the ladies push for promotion to the top flight.

In any case, looks pretty nice at night.

It’s going to be epic once in there. With 6 home games to go and a top 4 race is it worth just pushing it out with us playing easier sides at home after this weekend?

nike stadium !!
sold off the naming rights to that mickey mouse company
Apparently Bein might have gone early with that. The Mail are saying that sources at the club categorically deny it being true, but that could just be because they want maximum exposure with an official announcement. Bein have apparently deleted their original tweet as well.

No workers there today.
Apparently showing UEFA the stadium.
Saw a rumor that it may not just be an inspection type thing, but could be the first part of an application to host the CL final in the near future.

That's a shame about all these new stadiums, the name just comes back to whoever chucks the most money at them. Not gonna have things like Highbury, White Hart Lane, Old Trafford, Craven Cottage etc in 30 years.

The devils of the modern game Cruyff14 name was always being sold off even though geographically this stadium is closer to white hart lane than the original.

Would prefer Nike to many companies. But would prefer Nike Arena than Nike Stadium

Yeah I’ve heard similar that it’s a very big chance to get one of the next few finals

When a new stadium is built selling naming rights is fair enough these days. In any case Spurs fans will probably continue to refer to the venue as WHL.

Mike Ashley renaming St James Park to Sports Direct arena was bloody disgraceful though.

Other than Wembley, of course, but it was never in doubt. Even through the telly, that CL music for the first time at the new stadium will be something pretty ******* special.

Apparently Duel of the Fates is being replaced too.

How good does the cockerel look too

https://www.tottenhamhotspur.com/ne...m-test-event-matches-and-opening-game-update/

We are delighted to now be able to announce details for our two Test Event matches at our new stadium.
In order to achieve a formal safety certificate for fixtures to be held at the new stadium, we are required to hold two Test Event matches with increasing levels of attendances.

The two matches we have scheduled will provide an exciting opportunity to see the new stadium, support our lads in the Academy, watch our Legends take to the pitch and familiarise yourself with your matchday route. We shall also use these Test Events as an opportunity to thank our neighbours and local groups.

In respect of our opening game, this is subject to both a safety certificate and the outcome of Brighton & Hove Albion’s FA Cup match on Sunday 17 March.
We have held discussions with the Premier League and UEFA. The following has been agreed with the Premier League, Brighton and Crystal Palace to ensure that our first game is a Premier League match prior to a UEFA Champions League quarter-final match:


If Brighton win their FA Cup quarter-final match on Sunday 17th March we shall play Crystal Palace on Wednesday 3rd April and Brighton on 23rd/24th April.
If Brighton lose their FA Cup quarter-final match on Sunday 17th March we shall play Brighton on 6th/7th April (subject to Champions League scheduling) and Crystal Palace on 23rd/24th April.


We should like to thank Brighton and Crystal Palace for their support with the rescheduling arrangements.”

Very happy with the proposed name "Nike North London Stadium at White Hart Lane" for short it'll be called Nike North London Stadium which I also like a lot more than just Nike Stadium

August to January: getting things right on the pitch + stadium situation is a mess
February to March: getting things right with the stadium + on the pitch is a mess

Will they even get to have a Champions League game there? If it's delayed until next season they might not even be in the top 4.
Dunno. Depends whether they can move the hoardings back and create more space in time. In the days of anally retentive health and safety jobsworths it could take anywhere between 5 minutes and 5 weeks lol
