Spurs have announced EA Sports as their club’s official video game partner and as a result, they have released an exciting trailer of the new Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
“As part of this latest partnership, the Club’s iconic new stadium will feature in FIFA 19, while the team will also be available to select in the FIFA 19 Demo, due for release in September, along with nine other UEFA Champions League sides.” a club statement read.
“EA SPORTS will continue to work with the Club to ensure players appear as lifelike as possible in FIFA, while they will also enjoy innovative player access throughout the season.”
White Hart Lane is no more but after a long and drawn-out process, Tottenham are almost ready to move into their brand new, £850 million stadium that has been branded ‘a world class sports and entertainment venue.’
Spurs’ chairman Daniel Levy has described it as “our new home for generations to come” – so what have they named this almighty structure?
The club have announced that the name of their new stadium will be ‘Tottenham Hotspur Stadium’ for the time being, which has baffled many.
As you can see in the above image, the club have changed the letter ‘a’ in ‘stadium’ to represent their North London heritage.
Many have sarcastically pointed out that it must have taken ages to think of such a ‘genius’ name, but Spurs released a statement earlier about the new brand identify.
“We are delighted to unveil our new stadium brand identity.” a statement read.
“As well as becoming a new, world-famous home for Tottenham Hotspur, our new stadium will also stage NFL matches, concerts and other major events, as we look to create an iconic global sports and entertainment destination in Tottenham.
“Our new stadium will currently be known as Tottenham Hotspur Stadium with the ‘A’ of the word ‘Stadium’ stylised to create an arrow pointing north, to represent our proud North London heritage.
