English Premier League football club Tottenham Hotspur has partnered with BT Sport to capture the process of the roof of its new stadium being lifted from ground level to its final position.
The time lapse is available to view in 360 degrees and captures a significant milestone in the development of the club’s new stadium, which is being built across the road from the old White Hart Lane ground and is expected to open at the start of the 2018-19 season.
The time lapse was shot from the centre circle of the new stadium and provides never-before-seen views of the ground.
The video can be viewed through Spurs’ YouTube account and via the Facebook 360 app.
A force of some 20,000 tonnes was required to lift the roof into place when the process began in April. The roof has been formed by a cable net which is supported by 54 flying columns between the upper and lower tension rings.
The next step will be for 287 individual glass roof sections and 810 roof cassettes to be fitted alongside 324 LED sports lights. The lights have been provided by Musco Lighting, Spurs’ official stadium field of play lighting supplier.
Tottenham has been playing at Wembley while the new stadium is being built. Mauricio Pochettino’s side concluded the 2017-18 campaign with a 5-4 win over Leicester City at Wembley yesterday (Sunday).
