The New White Hart Lane
Last week I had the pleasure of being invited to the new "White Hart Lane" in the heart of Tottenham London - the home of Tottenham Hotspur. That's a London Football Club to those who don't know! They play in the Premier League. Now why am I stating the obvious you may ask? Well, you have to realise not everyone follows football or even cares about football. I have to be honest - unless I'm meeting friends in a pub or a bar and a game is on - i'll never spend my free time watching a game. Yes - I'll get involved in the World Cup and the European Championships - but other than that I really don't feel there are enough hours in my life to waste watching or following a team. However, once in a while I do make an exception to the rule especially if it's a generous invite. Thanks to SpreadEx (One of my Spread betting Providers) I found myself at the first game Tottenham Hotspur were playing at their new Stadium. I have friends who support Tottenham so I knew this game would be a big deal, at least historically. The Old Stadium closed in May 2017 and the new one was 2.5 years in the making - I had seen the footage of emotional fans saying goodbye to the old White Hart Lane - so in a way I wanted to see Live the reactions to their New Home.
I and my good friend "Eddy Longhead" were being entertained in one of the executive boxes. This meant a very filling dinner and all the drinks and snacks you could possibly consume. Topped off with a fantastic game of football surrounded by some of the most passionate football fans you could witness. 5 stars in terms of hospitality and an experience. If you are curious to see what happened that evening - the video is below for your enjoyment!
