Spurs hope to open first part of new stadium this weekend

Tottenham hope to open the first part of their behind-schedule new stadium to the public this weekend.

The club is aiming to have finished work on the megastore inside ‘The Tottenham Experience’, located on the corner of Park Lane and the High Road, in time for a Saturday morning opening — although no confirmation is expected until Friday.

Spurs claim the shop will be the largest retail space of any football club in Europe, although the store’s 100-seat auditorium, which will show pre-match entertainment when the stadium is open for matches, is still unfinished.

The Tottenham Experience —which is within Warmington House, a Grade II listed building — will also be home to a visitors’ centre, the club museum and archive, which are all scheduled to open next year.

Work is continuing around the clock to finish the stadium, with several key areas — including the football and NFL dressing rooms and many of the bars — still unfinished. Some of the executive suites — including The Daniel Levy suite, named after the club’s chairman — are close to being fully operational.

The club is expected to confirm in the next fortnight that the Premier League home games against Chelsea on November 24 and Southampton on December 5, at least, will be relocated to Wembley.
