Spurs Captain Hugo Lloris and England forward Harry Kane have becomes the first Tottenham players to experience the feeling of walking out at their new stadium. Wearing helmets, hi-vis jacket, and safety goggles, the Spurs duo were given the chance to stroll down the tunnel and into the main bowl of the 62,000-seater stadium set to open before the start of next season.
Striker Kane and goalkeeper Lloris went by the new stadium site, directly opposite to the club’s previous home at White Hart Lane, a week ago to film the online media clip.
The duo stands in the tunnel, Kane seizes Lloris and says ‘you need to go before me, it’s matchday‘ and they walk out from the tunnel one after the other.
Lloris and Kane look inspired when they emerge into the stadium and see the transcending stands above them, in spite of the fact that it as of now appears to be extremely unique to how it will be when wrapped up.
‘I can’t wait to be out here, hopefully scoring some goals and getting among the fans. To think we’re not that far away now, it’s incredible,’ said Kane.
‘You get goosebumps thinking of all the fans sitting in their seats. It’s going to be amazing.’
‘It’s very impressive and so compact. When it’s full it’s going to be awesome. We are looking forward – we need a big, big atmosphere in this stadium.
‘It’s going to be very modern, one of the best in Europe and we are lucky to be part of this project.
The new 62,000 stadia will be the largest club stadium in London once finished, with a capacity only higher than that of their north London rival Emirate stadium.
‘I remember sitting at White Hart Lane as a fan growing up and watching Tottenham play so to now be part of the team and moving into this big stadium is really exciting,’
Spurs create some level of uniqueness at the old stadium and went unbeaten in the Premier League amid their last campaign there – that was fantastic so to believe there will be twofold the numbers of fans singing and celebrating and applauding us, it’s mind-blowing.
I can’t express how much I’m anticipating playing here, scoring a few goals and seeing the passion on the faces of our fans.’
