Tottenham are gearing up to open their new stadium.

Tottenham Hotspur will officially open their new stadium on April 3.

Spurs announced the match will be held at 7.45pm against Crystal Palace.

There will also be an opening ceremony before kick off.

On March 30, Spurs will hold a ‘legends match’ made up of former players.

The first set of stars announced included Robbie Keane, Rafael van der Vaart, Dimitar Berbatov, Allan Nielsen, David Howells, Stephen Carr, Darren Anderton and Erik Thorstvedt.

Spurs announced another group yesterday, headlined by Jurgen Klinsmann.

The rest of the players included, Nayim, Micky Hazard, Mark Falco, Teemu Tainio, Paul Stalteri, Pascal Chimbonda, Chris Perry and Neil Sullivan.

Rival Arsenal fans have been pointing out that many of the players are not exactly household names or ‘legends’.

Tainio, Sullivan, Stalteri in particular are ex-stars who simply passed through Tottenham, rather than writing their name in club history.

Nayim is well known to Arsenal fans after he scored the decisive Cup Winners Cup goal in 1995 for Real Zaragoza to deny the Gunners silverware.

That did not stop Arsenal supporters trolling their rivals…
