Is this a way of digging our own underground station. Levy is a genius

Such pity that we couldn't play Wrexham in the cup, the potential to advertise our stadium and what it offers to the Americans would have increased the exposure even more.
There are far more American Spurs fans than people who watch the Wrexham show, it doesn't really matter IMO.

Commercially, ENIC and Levy are incredible, arguably the best in Football considering everything has been achieved organically and without on pitch success. Man u are better but that is because of the insane amount of glory hunters obtained by winning trophies.
Goes way back - became a global phenomenon due to the Munich Air Crash/Busby Babes…

Really good as long as all these things are translated into success on the field. Spurs are doing things ‘differently’ which could be good, but our focus still must be on the team.

However this will definitely have an effect on potential investment.
Yes will have an effect on investment for more buildings but not much for the team?

Must admit this what I’m thinking. I even wonder if we are technically allowed to use the money generated from it. I suppose we are, but I don’t know these sort of things.

According to the Independent going to be separate tracks , Adult & Juniors

The venue – which will be built below the stadium’s iconic single-tier South Stand – will be the world’s first in-stadium electric karting facility when it opens in autumn 2023 and will be the longest indoor track in London. There will be separate tracks for adults and juniors, making the venue a potential future host for national karting championship races, having been accredited by the National Karting Association.

Imagine the tracks they can build and weave in these spaces...

The infrastructure to set it up will easily be brought in for non-matchdays, off season periods, and 15yrs is sufficient time to make the investment worthwhile.

"Tottenham Hotspur have announced a new groundbreaking 15-year-old partnership with Formula One, sparking speculation of a possible takeover of the club by the world’s most valuable sports empire.

Liberty Media, which is valued at $21 billion (about £17.5 billion) and owns the Atlanta Braves Major League Baseball team as well as F1, is to build the first karting track under a football stadium as part of the tie-up with Spurs.

But sources have suggested that this could simply be the first step in Liberty, which bought F1 in 2017, exploring the possibility of adding a Premier League club to its sporting portfolio."

Looks like Tottenham Hotspur football club is slowly becoming Tottenham Sports and events Ltd.
Doubt we see much of the money invested in the FOOTBALL side of things. If we did it would be a great move but have my doubts.

Also believe Liberty Media have a stake in Live Nation, concert promoters to Beyoncé amongst many others. Coincidence? Maybe

Asking for a friend…do Tripadvisor give out trophies for this sort of thing?
haha

It's a fantastic thing in it's own right but I get you on this. This money spinner, that money spinner, this is great, that is great, it's all great.

Except where it matters.

We get so much of this that it's almost 'meh' because what we'd really like to see is the same innovation and ambition shown where it matters.

Until then, we're quite rightly going to get people being cynical. From that point of view, he's still got a lot to do. But for this, right now, hats off to him.
