Spurs are currently taking part in a pitch trial with the NFL. At our stadium and 14 stadiums in the States, a new fake surface with more ‘give’ in it is being tested. The aim is to cut down on joint injuries in players.
Wondered why they had all the NFL stuff when Maddison was there.

There is an article in Building Magazine about Chris Lee and Populous and their business approach and Tottenham’s Stadium. It is a subscription magazine. Am I allowed to copy and paste the article without having all my orifices rogered by A&C🤓

We have a fierce competitor :)

SC VERL (3. Bundesliga) NOW HAS THE LONGEST BAR IN GERMAN PROFESSIONAL FOOTBALL !

There is a standing section – of course. It's a must for die-hard fans. The number of sections has even been doubled. And the VIPs sit particularly comfortably upholstered on the gallery or at the height of the center line. There is nothing in the renewed arena of the Sportclub Verl that is not available in other stadiums. Incorrect! Because among the 5,000 seats there are a handful that could give the smallest stadium in German professional football cult status.

Michael Beckhoff is SCV's stadium officer. "The only volunteer of all professional clubs," as he emphasizes with a wink. Another unique selling point of the club from the city of 25,000. During the extensive conversion work, Beckhoff had to keep an eye on the big picture – and yet they have this attention to detail. And that's why they are there now, the 68 counter seats in the grandstand.

Chairs the height of bar stools and in front of them a continuous, narrow table. As the third division club proudly announces, “the longest bar in German professional football” stretches across the entire east stand – with a break in the VIP area. You have the best view of the field from the raised seat. A total of 65.20 meters of pure fun factor. For comparison: in Tottenham's 62,000-capacity stadium in London, there is the longest continuous bar counter in Europe at 65 metres.

I see that according to the latest THST news a beigel stand (I prefer non US spelling) will be trialled by block 101 serving smoked salmon , mozzarella and tomato & salt beef beigels not sure when it starts or if it was there for the Manure game.

Had a smoke salmon and cream cheese yesterday, home made of course, lovely. I wonder if they'll have more in other parts of the ground.

At the moment looks like just a trial but the food offerings are increasing, maybe it should be advertised as a gastronomic destination, perhaps also get the Michelin inspectors to visit , we could call it The Bib Gourmand Stadium :)

Some extracts on food from THST
The Club have launched several new Chicken House and N17 outlets around the stadium and over 30 new products including in-house created fish finger sandwiches, samosas and bao buns. Vegetarian and plant-based items (including a new vegan chorizo sausage roll and a plant-based ‘fish’ and chips) are now available at all outlets around the stadium – something Trust members requested repeatedly through our surveys. Gluten free dishes are available as well as gluten free beer and these can be located via the Spurs app, using the stadium section. The beer offering now includes Bira Moretti, by popular request.


PS
I see Wynne Evans well known supporter won celebrity Masterchef , could ask him to come and cook.

Hoping to try the smoked salmon or salt beef beigel when I go on Saturday, perhaps we could name it the best gastronomic stadium in the world as well.

When will they extend these food options beyond the south stand?

Up on the upper levels we only have the choice of sausage roll or a few flavour-less pies

According to the Spurs app there is now a Chicken House on level 5 , think it's on the east side

Lots of nice words from Sadiq Khan, best thing he could do for fans is to encourage TFL to operate a match day only service on the Victoria Line up to Northumberland Park, the tracks are already there into the sidings just need to install a single platform to enable fans to alight there before and board after a match.
