Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy has confirmed that the club’s new home ground will be known as the “Tottenham Hotspur Stadium” until they find the right partner to purchase the naming rights.
Spurs left their traditional home of White Hart Lane at the end of last season in preparation for their new 60,000-seat ground, and have taken on a season-long residence at Wembley while construction is completed, having played at the national stadium in European competitions during the last campaign.
With Levy having confirmed that the club’s new home would not be named after their old ground, it was expected that the club would sell the naming rights to an external company, although that has not yet come to fruition.
However as quoted in the minutes of a meeting between the board and the Tottenham Hotspur Supporters Trust, available on the THST website (Point 3.19), the club chief confirmed that crucial talks over the rights are progressing, but that the ground, which is currently identified as “Tottenham Hotspur’s new stadium” on the club’s website, would from here on be referred to as the “Tottenham Hotspur Stadium” until an agreement is made.
After a slow start at Wembley this season, with a defeat and two draws, Spurs have impressed at their temporary home, having only lost the once and won nine of their 14 Premier League games, the fourth best record in the top flight.
