A Place in History

The 2016/17 season will see football return to three iconic grounds in English football as well as a new home for West Ham United football club.

Most prized of all though is Tottenham Hotspur’s temporary move out of White Hart Lane to set up camp in one of football’s most revered cathedrals, Wembley Stadium.

This season they will play European fixtures at the venue – and be looking to fill every one of those 90,000 seats – with an option to move all Spurs games there next season while White Hart Lane is being renovated.

Further east, West Ham United left their Boleyn Ground at Upton Park at the end of last season to shift into the nearby shiny new Olympic Stadium. The move might have cost them the castle on their badge, but the sweetheart cut-price deal to play there secures both the club and stadium’s future.
