Tottenham sign suppliers to support stadium move

English Premier League football club Tottenham Hotspur has announced Zumtobel Group, Redstone and GKR Scaffolding as official suppliers for its new stadium, which is due to open next year.

Zumtobel Group will serve as the club’s official lighting supplier and will be responsible for designing and developing lighting solutions across the new 61,000-seat stadium, which is being built across the road from White Hart Lane, Tottenham’s current home.

Zumtobel will fit lighting inside the player facilities, around the internal seating bowl, concourse, premium areas and the glass façade that will wrap around the ground’s exterior.

Redstone has been named as Tottenham’s official stadium cabling infrastructure installer and will fit all the passive cabling infrastructure to support the facility’s technology systems.

GKR Scaffolding will serve as the club’s official scaffolding supplier on the project. The company has experience of working with Tottenham, having provided the scaffolding used during the demolition of White Hart Lane.

Matthew Collecott, Tottenham’s director of operations, said: “We are delighted to welcome all of these key suppliers as part of the stadium development project.  We want to create one of the most unique and compelling venues around and by selecting suppliers that are leaders in their field, we can be confident that they will deliver to the levels that we demand in order to realise that vision.”

Tottenham is hoping that the new ground will stand as one of the most technologically advanced stadia in the world. The venue is due to open in time for the 2018-19 season, with the club set to play its home games at Wembley Stadium while work is ongoing during the 2017-18 campaign.
