Tottenham tipped to seal £250m deal after 'incredible' Saturday development - pundit
Tottenham may secure a lucrative naming rights deal for their stadium after Saturday’s “incredible” Anthony Joshua-Oleksandr Usyk fight.
That is the view of former White Hart Lane number one Paul Robinson, speaking exclusively to Football Insider about the event that did “wonders” for the stadium’s publicity.
Spurs’ £1billion stadium hosted the heavyweight clash between Joshua and Usyk as the Ukrainian upset the odds to become the WBA, WBO and IBF world champion.
The Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, which was built to be a multi-purpose venue, earned high praise from the boxing community after Saturday.
As revealed by Football Insider (25th September), Spurs are in talks to secure a naming rights deal for their stadium and want to secure a 10-year agreement worth £25million-per-annum.
According to the Daily Mail, Amazon and Nike are two of the top contenders for a deal.

Robinson believes Saturday night’s spectacular event could push a deal over the line.
“It was an incredible event and an incredible event on the world stage,” he told Football Insider‘s Dylan Childs.
“It would have done wonders publicity-wise for the stadium.
“Everyone you speak to about that stadium says, ‘Wow. What a stadium. That’s unbelievable. I’ve never seen anything like it.’
“When you look at the boxes, the hospitality, the light shows, the sound system and the infrastructure – there is nothing like it in the world.
“Hopefully, that event will increase interest in a naming rights deal and maybe even push it over the edge.”
