English Premier League football club Tottenham Hotspur has launched a special service that pays tribute to its former home at White Hart Lane and allows fans to remember the stadium in its full glory.
‘The Lane 360’ is a 360° experience that will enable supporters to explore some of the most famous locations of the North London stadium, which has now been demolished to make way for the team’s new home ground.
Featured on the interactive tour are rooms that were previously off-limits to fans and a behind-the-scenes look at some of Tottenham’s final matches at the venue from the 2016-17 season.
In addition, club legends, current players and fans share their memories of White Hart Lane in video interview segments.
Tottenham is due to move into its new home stadium for the start of the 2018-19 campaign next summer. The club is currently playing home matches at Wembley Stadium, England’s national stadium on the other side of London.
However, the club recently admitted that while work on its new stadium remains on schedule, it is a possibility that a number of home games at the start of next season will be played away from home to allow for finishing touches to be made.
Tottenham does hold the option to play next season’s games at Wembley should work on the new stadium fall behind schedule, although it is not envisaged that such a back-up plan would be needed.
However, it is possible that Tottenham could come to an arrangement with the Premier League whereby it plays the first few games of the 2018-19 campaign away from home.
West Ham United had a similar start to this season after the London Stadium was used to host the World Athletics Championships, while Liverpool also played away from Anfield for the first three games of the 2016-17 campaign while the stadium’s main stand was expanded.
