West Ham and Arsenal fans are among those to compare Tottenham's new stadium to an airport.
Work on Tottenham Hotspur's new stadium is being done at a rapid pace and it is on course to open for the 2018/19 season.
Spurs released imagery yesterday showing that the interior of the new ground will look like.
The pictures show the interior of the new ground to be near immaculate, but like most modern stadiums, it looks a bit too... corporate.
Rival fans responded to Tottenham's picture release by comparing the ground to an airport.
That's Heathrow airport.— Simon②⚒ (@piemashmerchant) March 13, 2018
Looks more like an airport. Might want to let @HKane know which terminal he’s got to get to for his flight to Madrid.— RedWhiteGooner ⚪️ (@RedWhite_Gooner) March 13, 2018
Rank. Not football at all this, give me villa park all day.— Riken (@Savva177) March 13, 2018
Is there a charging station where all the tourists can go to charge their ipads at half time?— Jamie (@JHGS1872) March 13, 2018
Give me a proper football ground any day!— TheBlades (@skibumg) March 13, 2018
I swear i can see a British Airways check in desk— Alex (@TAKTIKT0E) March 13, 2018
Looks amazing. But a major part of the reason I’m losing interest in football. Explicitly a business these days. Just feels soulless & corporate. You feel more like a consumer than a fan— MC (@FCLacazette) March 13, 2018
Tottenham released their ticket prices yesterday for the new stadium, with The Mail reporting season tickets will start at £875.
But at least this will feel like home for Tottenham fans more than this season has done.
It will not be White Hart Lane, and never will be, but it will possess more identity and ties to the club than Wembley current does.
Wembley suffers from many of the same criticisms as Tottenham's new ground is getting. Too corporate, soulless, raging against modern football.
This though will be Tottenham's home of their own creating, and will be nothing like the mess West Ham have inherited at the London Stadium, and it may just become the best 'new' ground the country has to offer.
