[Opinion] Tottenham Hotspurs’ State-of-the-Art Stadium Promises To Be a Hit for US Soccer Fans

LONDON, United Kingdom (FNN SPORTS) – Tottenham’s visit to Orlando for its International Champions Cup 2017 against Paris Saint-Germain July 22 is sure to excite some of the estimated 400,000 Brits living in Florida permanently. This competition has progressively improved and now they are bringing some of the best European teams to the US.

On the other hand, Tottenham will repay its US fans with its new state-of-the-art stadium, due to open in the summer of 2018, which will feature a retractable grass field with an artificial surface underneath that will be used for NFL games. This innovative field will add greater flexibility in the scheduling of games, with the NFL having its own playing surface for games held at this venue. This field will be multi-use and capable of hosting other sporting, entertainment and community events.

In addition to the minimum of two games per year at the new Tottenham site, other NFL games may take place at different venues in the UK during the span of the 10-year agreement.

I believe that the International Champions Cup is a fantastic opportunity for US fans to see some their heroes from the world of soccer. My hope is they continue to work on ensuring the fans from both teams are guided to separate parts of the stadium to increase the atmosphere and make it feel similar to other UK football stadiums.
