After months of delays, Tottenham are finally closing in on their much-anticipated move to the new 'Tottenham Hotspur Stadium' and unsurprisingly Spurs supporters are getting excited.
Initially scheduled to open for the beginning of the current campaign, Spurs have been forced to play the bulk of the season at Wembley as the finishing touches are made to their new home.
However, with the stadium set to host its first Premier League match after the international break, supporters have been given an inside look at the finished product with a test event pitting the Spurs Under-18 side against the Southampton Under-18s, in front of a crowd of nearly 30,000 supporters.
While the match itself was secondary to the opening day festivities, the crowd tested out the acoustics of their new home when J’Neil Lloyd Bennett scored the stadium's first ever goal to give Spurs a 1-0 lead.
The 62,000 capacity stadium is the biggest club ground in London and the second biggest in the Premier League, surpassing the Emirates by nearly 2000 seats.
Even Arsenal fans couldn't help but be impressed by the state of the art facilities.
I understand as an Arsenal fan my job is to hate everything Spurs.— SBG (@ScottyBoyGooner) March 24, 2019
But the new stadium is really really nice.
Dare I say this? I may lose my "proper Arsenal fan" status but here goes...— Mikey Boyd (@mike_boyd88) March 23, 2019
Spurs' new stadium looks amazing. Any Gooner that says otherwise is in denial. Am I jealous? Not at all. We too have a beautiful home... Best 2 stadiums in league are both in North London. Fact.
Despite not hosting an official Premier League match some are already claiming that the new stadium is the best in England, Europe, and possibly the world.
I never thought I'd see a stadium look half as impressive as the Allianz Areana but Spurs' new ground is stunning! They are the best team in London & now they have the best stadium in London! Fair play too them... #TottenhamHotspurStadium #THFC ⚽️⚽️⚽️— Elliott Holdsworth (@elliott_h123) March 24, 2019
I am so jealous of Spurs' new stadium. It looks absolutely sensational, possiblly the best stadium in Europe— Jonny Hannaford (@TheOrigJonny) March 24, 2019
Assuming that there are no hitches over the two test events, Spurs will face Crystal Palace in the new stadium on April 3, as Mauricio Pochettino's men look to consolidate their place in the top four with seven matches left to play in the Premier League season
