It took an eternity for Tottenham, but it seems the Lilly-Whites are almost there now. Primarily scheduled to open at the start of the 2018/19 Premier League season – the Liverpool game in September to be precise – fans haven’t got to witness their club’s new stadium up until now.
The Lilly-Whites have thus far played all of their home games in Wembley, while their EFL Cup encounter was played in Milton Keynes. It was on Sunday, however, that 6,000 lucky fans were given an opportunity of having a look at their new home from inside and judging by the reviews received, it is safe to assume the wait was absolutely worth.
Built on their old site, these fans were given a glance of the South Stand and were catered by several eateries. As The Guardian quotes, the highlight of the tour, apart from the pitch and the stand, remained the touch-payment system, which the Tottenham hierarchy has deployed at their Beavertown bar. So, there’s no need for cash.
But if you think this is it, let us tell you something that might give you that ‘OMG’ emotion. The bar at the stadium, which is the longest single bar in Europe, will serve a pint of beer starting from just £4, and it is cheaper than any other grounds in England. The artistry though lies in the way these drinks will be served.

There will be special cups for the pint with special plugs attached to them. As soon as the cups are placed on the stand, a jet will fill the cup in no time and this is it.
The stadium has almost reached completion, but unfortunately the term ‘almost’ remains an antonym to be precise. The club has already confirmed that their home fixture against Manchester United in January will be played at Wembley, hence an estimated time of around early February has been approximated for matches to happen.
