Tottenham are installing the artificial grass field at their new ground

It’s starting to look like a real stadium now!

Happy Saturday, everyone! We haven’t taken a look on the site at how the construction of the (currently named) Tottenham Hotspur Stadium is going in a while, but by all accounts things are going really, really well.

We’re used to seeing a field of dirt in the inside of the bowl that includes a bunch of cranes and heavy equipment, but this week that equipment started to make way for some actual green. Well, at least artificial green. A couple of weeks ago the club tested the retractable turf field trays to make sure that they are in working order, and this week they started actually laying down the artificial field turf surface that will sit underneath the grass field.

Take a look at this video from Twitter!

I don’t know about anyone else, but this feels to me like a Rubicon moment for the stadium. With the roof nearly finished, the field turf going down, and most of the seats already installed, this is starting to actually look like a stadium and not a framework of what will eventually become a stadium. They also used the state of the art new stadium screens to announce Harry Kane’s new contract, which was excellent.

Tottenham Hotspur’s new home is going to be abso-friggin-lutely gorgeous.
