Tottenham fans have been treated to their first virtual reality glimpse of the club’s new stadium – and it’s fair to say the majority are hugely impressed.
The 61,000-capacity stadium is set to become the largest football club ground in London when it opens in 2018.
Spurs chairman Daniel Levy said the ground would ‘redefine sports and entertainment experiences’.
As the ground will host football games, NFL matches and concerts, the stadium will be fitted with a retractable grass field and an artificial surface underneath.
According to the club, the new stadium is anticipated to cost around £750million.
A select group of Spurs players were offered a virtual reality tour of the new stadium, and first-team stars Christian Eriksen and Hugo Lloris could not hide their excitement.
‘It is very impressive,’ Eriksen said. ‘It’s a special opportunity to see the stadium before it’s done. It looks unbelievable.’
France international Lloris added: ‘It’s an interesting feeling to see the project and to feel what the fans will see. The [single tier] stand is amazing.’
