Tottenham Hotspur and NFL agree 10 year stadium dealIBTimes UK

Tottenham Hotspur manager Mauricio Pochettino says the latest imagery for the club's new stadium shows the extent of their ambition.

The Daily Mail report that Spurs' new stadium, which will be built adjacent to their White Hart Lane ground, will cost £400m ($615m).

On 8 July, Tottenham unveiled fresh imagery of their new stadium and revealed plans to host two National Football League games per year as part of a 10-year agreement.

The 61,000-capacity arena, which Tottenham will move into for the start of the 2018-19 campaign, will allow the club to compete financially with their Premier League rivals and Pochettino says he is excited by the fresh plans.

"The new stadium designs and facilities look incredible – this really demonstrates the ambition of this football club," he told the club's official website.

"We have always enjoyed strong backing from our fans at home and it is great that the stadium atmosphere is central to the new designs too.

"Everybody should be excited about what the club is looking to achieve, this stadium will be one of the best around."

Chairman Daniel Levy added: "We are all excited to be taking the project to the next stage. Our commitment is to find the best solution for the club, our supporters and our community. It will be our new home for many years to come and we want it to be exceptional in every aspect.

"Schemes of this scale and magnitude must undergo continuous and rigorous review in order to ensure it is future-proofed and the design is optimised.

"We are determined that this scheme delivers something that becomes an iconic landmark, instantly recognisable around the world and capable of acting as the catalyst needed to kick-start the regeneration of this area."

Though Tottenham have faced constant delays in their attempts to move into their new stadium, the latest update sees the prospective capacity increased and confirmation of the agreement with the NFL.

The next stage for the club is to find a stadium to play the 2016-17 season, with Milton Keynes Dons' Stadium MK and Wembley among the potential candidates.
