The partnership will see the exclusive delivery of the world’s first in-stadium electric karting facility and London’s longest indoor track, based below the Stadium’s iconic South Stand - the latest example of how the multi-use nature of the stadium is attracting a wide range of sports and events, creating a wealth of opportunities and experiences for partners, fans and visitors.

The one-of-its-kind experience, which will be seen at no other football stadium in Europe, will include separate tracks for both adults and juniors and has been accredited by the National Karting Association, making the facility a potential future venue for national karting championship races. In addition, the experience will also include interactive motorsport activities and food and beverage facilities.

Could be a huge earner for us. Levy is a genius at this sort of stuff (football stuff - not so much).

Naming rights deal just got way more expensive, stadium gaining much more visibility in the future.

The final sentence of the press release haha

Creating additional recurring sources of revenue to reinvest in our football activities is a key part of the Club’s financial model.

In all seriousness, absolutely amazing deal and bonkers how successfully our stadium is elevating the club. Anyone who has a problem with stuff like this must be completely myopic.

Having a large fuel dump plus a stack of tyres, oil, batteries and advertising boards under a stand of 18,000 people is an excellent idea. What ever could go wrong?

I sometimes think Levy isn't quite the genius he is made out to be in this community. We have the largest flexible stadium in the world, in one of the biggest diverse cities in the world and it is empty 95% of the time.

Where are the monster truck destruction derbies? The tennis tournaments. Aussie rules exhibitions games. Polo (£££). chariot races. Religious rallies - get that pope over to say his farewells.
And sure motor sports, but in the main stadium, where families can watch in comfort, and get something to eat and drink.

Mate, what?
You're complaining that the stadium is empty 95% of the time, yet at the same time complaining about something that will help use the facilities.
Our stadium already gets more non-football use that any other stadium in the country, so surely this is a good thing.
They are taking advantage of every space and every opportunity, I really don't see what there is to complain about this.

It's a go-karting track, not spectator motorsport, it doesn't need a massive audience in the stadium.
Plus, there will be viewing areas and food/drink available down there. Read the reports on it (which I'm assuming you haven't, what with talking about fuel dumps and oil).

Are we getting an F1 track built under the pitch?
No.

The F1 track will be built underneath the karting track, which will be built underneath the secret cheese vault, which is built underneath the stadium.

If it helps, here's a bullet-list representation:

  1. Stadium
  2. Cheese vault
  3. Kart circuit
  4. F1 circuit
  5. ???
  6. Profit
Hope that's clarified things.
