Google Wants to Buy the Naming Rights to Tottenham Hotspur Stadium
Tottenham Hotspur moved into its new 62,850-capacity stadium in 2019, but after three years, the stadium remains Tottenham Hotspur Stadium. However, that might be soon to change. Google has expressed interest in securing the naming rights for the stadium, according to a report from The Athletic.
The £1 billion (roughly $1.1 billion) stadium replaced White Hart Lane, the former home of Tottenham. Tottenham had been calling White Hart Lane home since 1899 until its demolition in 2017.
Despite being the third largest stadium in England, Tottenham Hotspur Stadium is a hot commodity for the American company. It has now held numerous NFL games along with Premier League and UEFA Champions League matches.
The stadium has hosted six NFL games since opening in 2019 with two games having been played there so far this season. Two weeks ago the Minnesota Vikings beat the New Orleans Saints 28-25 before the New York Giants beat the Green Bay Packers 27-22 this past Sunday.
Tottenham has started the 2022-23 Premier League season on a roll, currently sitting 3rd on the table under manager Antonio Conte. There have been jokes about Tottenham not spending money in the transfer windows in the past, but that has changed under Conte. The large sum of money that would come with Google buying Tottenham Hotspur Stadium will help the team continue its spending ways to improve the squad.
