Tottenham Hotspur’s shiny new stadium in north London is almost complete. Gone is the old White Hart Lane and the old team shop that sat just west of the stadium right on High Road. With anticipation at it’s highest given that we might have a date of when the stadium opens, the club has announced that the new Spurs Shop in the Tottenham Experience will open on Tuesday.
The new shop is over 23,000 square feet (2,136 square meters) in size and boasts kits featuring basically every player on the roster from the look of pictures. One wouldn’t be surprised to find Ossie Ardiles living in a glass apartment in the middle of the shop just nodding to people while he watches TV.
While at the shop, fans of the club can find apparel not just from the club, but with Nike gear as well as various NFL merchandise. There is a 100-seat auditorium in front of a massive 36-screen wall (seen above) that will host various events both pre and post-match. Video game fans can also dive into FIFA 19 in the shop with others while parents try to win a raffle to get elbowed by Erik Lamela on matchdays. (Citation needed on second part.)
All joking aside, this shop looks as state of the art as it gets. The custom kit printing area is behind a façade of the old Tottenham & Edmonton Dispensary that was once on High Road, giving fans a nostalgia trip, including bringing back into use the Grade II listed Warmington House.
If you weren’t already excited to see this new stadium, this seems to be just another small taste of the entire new experience with our beloved Tottenham Hotspur.
