Tottenham Hotspur are interested in partnering with a London-based NFL team to share the new White Hart Lane stadium, which could be ready for opening in 2016.
According to Metro newspaper today, the combined effort could help build a new 65,000-seat stadium. Tottenham recently appointed new architects who could be drawing up plans for a stadium that would work for both soccer and American football. The plans would include a pitch that would slide out to protect the surface when it’s used for NFL games.
There’s plenty of speculation regarding the story, but according to the newspaper, “A Spurs spokesman refused to rule out the club working with an NFL franchise and insisted the ‘New White Hart Lane’ would be a multi-purpose arena.”
