Spurs have revealed their new 62,062-seater stadium will be called the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
The club confirmed the news yesterday afternoon and reiterated their desire to promote the north London district.
A statement on Tottenham Hotspur’s website, read: “We are delighted to unveil our new stadium brand identity.
“As well as becoming a new, world-famous home for Tottenham Hotspur, our new stadium will also stage NFL matches, concerts and other major events as we look to create an iconic global sports and entertainment destination in Tottenham.

“It will therefore have its own brand identity, as with all world-class multi-purpose venues.
“The design is inspired by the stadium’s South West Elevation as it sweeps over the five-storey atrium – a view of the stadium that fans will enjoy as they walk up the High Road on match days.

“The pattern within the marque is based around the stadium’s veil façade to create a unique and contemporary motif that can stand alone or sit elegantly alongside our famous club badge.
“Our new stadium will currently be known as Tottenham Hotspur Stadium with the ‘A’ of the word ‘Stadium’ stylised to create an arrow pointing north, to represent our proud North London heritage.
“Further nods to our history can be found throughout the stadium, with club mottos adorning the elevations of the building along with our distinguished cockerel crest cast in concrete around the stadium perimeter.
“Inside, you will find feature bars such as The Shelf and The White Hart, as well as the polished concrete floors made from crushed aggregate taken from our beloved former home, White Hart Lane.
“The new ident will feature for the first time alongside our club crest on One Hotspur membership cards that are starting to be dispatched.”
Spurs have also revealed the first two test events taking place at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
The first will occur on August 27 and be an under-23 fixture against Brighton & Hove Albion (2pm kick-off).
And the second will be when Tottenham Legends take on Bayern Munich Legends on September 1 – both will provide fans an exciting opportunity to see the club’s new home.
