The challenge

A 3,000-tonne retractable grass pitch that slides away to reveal the NFL's first purpose-built home outside the United States? It's not what you'd expect from a London football stadium. But then Tottenham Hotspur is no ordinary stadium. In fact, with 62,000 seats, a micro-brewery, Michelin-starred dining experiences and a 40 metre-high daredevil 'Sky Walk', this multipurpose arena has been declared “the best stadium in the world”. But it didn’t happen overnight. And with a full calendar of fixtures, Tottenham Hotspur needed to keep the old stadium open and operational for fans throughout the 2016/17 season. This meant working with a dedicated team who could manage the new construction around the old stadium. No small feat in a busy urban area.

The solution

Working on this exciting project with Tottenham Hotspur Football Club, Arcadis delivered Commercial Management expertise and Lenders Technical Advisory services for the redevelopment of the new stadium. Our role centered on defining the commercial execution strategy for the development and helping to raise the private finance necessary to get the entire project off the ground.

The impact

Not just good news for Spurs fans

There is no doubt that Tottenham Hotspur’s new home has elevated the match-day experience for both the players and their fans. Having picked up 12 industry awards, it has set a new benchmark for how stadiums can be. Not just as a world-class football stadium in its own right, but maximised to host a multitude of other sporting and entertainment events.
