Spurs host Crystal Palace at White Hart Lane tonight - but concrete still being poured at delayed 62,000-seat venue

Eight months after it was originally meant to open the new stadium designed by Populous for Tottenham Hotspur is set to open to the public tonight.

The 62,062-seat stadium will host its first Premier League match tonight, a game between Spurs and Crystal Palace, after hosting two test events at the venue at the end of last month.

The nine-storey stadium contains 998m2 of television screens, three ‘feature bars’, an entire brewery, a grass pitch which can be slid away to host American football games and countless luxury bars and restaurants.
