Tottenham announce deal with Hewlett Packard Enterprise for their new stadium

 Tottenham Hotspur have announced a partnership deal with Hewlett Packard Enterprise in order to turn their new stadium into one of the world’s best in terms of technology.


Spurs will spend the upcoming season at England’s national stadium Wembley after they decided to move on from White Hart Lane, where they maintained an unbeaten record during the previous campaign.

Spurs are currently building the stadium beside their old ground, and the construction is due to be completed before the start of the 2018/19 season. The north London club have already reached an agreement with three American banks to fund around £400m for their 61,500-seater stadium, while they will also arrange two American Football games annually as part of a 10-year bond with the NFL.

Spurs agree on £400m deal to help finance new stadium

Tottenham Hotspur have made significant strides to paying up for their new stadium after having announced a £400m deal with three American.


Bank of America Merrill Lynch, Goldman Sachs and HSBC have provided the funding to the north London club in a five-year arrangement to support the construction of the 61,500 seater stadium. Spurs have already spent £340m “on the acquisition of land, the planning process (including a compulsory purchase order and legal challenges) and build costs to date” as per the club’s website but this is unlikely to have an impact on their players’ status, finance director Matthew Collecott has revealed.

He told Bloomberg news agency: “This is not going to touch the football, these are very separate budgets. We are delighted to have three of the most prestigious and globally recognised banks supporting us.” Spurs have recently extended the contract of several of their key players including Harry Kane and Hugo Lloris, and the club are looking forward to another competitive season in the Premier League, be it rather in the Wembley stadium, where they had an awful record last term.

WORKS BEGINS AT SPURS STADIUM AFTER FAREWELL

In less than a day after the now famous 2-1 victory over Manchester United, work has begun in earnest at White Hart Lane.


It was an emotional game as the team defeated the Premier League giant in the last game at the Spurs’ stadium.

Victor Wanyama and Harry Kane made it 2-0 before United all-time record scorer Wayne Rooney got a consolation. Kane was very excited to score the goal as it sealed the victory for the team. He now has 22 goals in the Premier League, another brilliant season after last year.

The fans were very happy with the result as they bade the old ground farewell. Old and current players said their goodbyes as they left the pitch on a very emotional note.

In a few hours, diggers that were on standby have ripped up the pitch as work begins after the Sunday game. On Monday, Spurs’ chief Daniel Levy gave the keys of the property to the CEO of Mace – the contracting company that would oversee the construction of the new stadium – Mark Reynolds, according to reports.

Will Hillsborough Host Premier League Football Once Again?

Sheffield Wednesday are a club with a proud history, having been one of the first clubs accepted into the Football League in the 1890s and were present in the inaugural season of the Premier League. However, since their relegation from the top flight 17 years ago, the Owls have struggled immensely to rejoin England’s elite division.

Since the appointment of Carlos Carvalhal last season the club have taken serious strides to earn promotion to the Premier League. Only a stunning strike from Mohamed Diame thwarted Wednesday in the Championship playoff final, sending Hull back into the top division at the expense of the South Yorkshire outfit. (more…)
