New Tottenham Hotspur stadium finally opened
Almost eight months after the original deadline it’s finally happened. Tottenham Hotspur opened their new stadium this week with a home match against Crystal Palace. The original opening was planned for the start of this Premier League season, but several issues with the critical safety systems due to faulty electrical wiring delayed the completion of the stadium. Playing in a new stadium is important, but the safety of everyone who attends a football match is of course way more important. Now all the issues are fixed, Tottenham Hotspur opened their new stadium on the 3rd of April 2019 against Crystal Palace.
The first official match in a new stadium is always something special for a football player. Even more so when you score the first ever Premier League goal in the new stadium of your club. Son Heung-Min got the honour to do so in the new Tottenham Hotspur stadium. The South-Korean player opened the score in the 55th minute of the game. 59,215 People witnessed this special moment in North-London.
The opening of the New Tottenham Hotspur stadium comes just in time for the Champions League quarter finals. The North-London club reached this stage of the tournament after beating Borussia Dortmund in the round of 16. They will face Manchester City in the quarter finals. Go to our
