There were four criteria for evaluation. The first is the stadium experience, which accounts for 40% of the total score. The view of the seat, accessibility, and convenience facilities inside and around the stadium were factors to consider. The second was the atmosphere of the stadium atmosphere. The atmosphere created by home and away fans accounted for 25% of the total score.
The third was traffic and location. Twenty percent of the scores were allocated for how convenient it is for fans to travel to and from the stadium. Finally, it was the beauty of the stadium. Considering the appearance of the stadium and its historical value, it scored the remaining 15% of the points.
Tottenham Hotspur Stadium ranked first overall among the 20 clubs. Tottenham started building a new stadium in 2014 and invested at least 1 billion pounds (about 1.6455 trillion won) to create Tottenham Hotspur Stadium. Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, completed in April 2019, can accommodate about 63,000 people. It is the largest stadium in London, England, and second only to Old Trafford of Manchester United in the Premier League as a whole.
Tottenham Hotspur Stadium was rated the most by three factors. The first is the geographical connection to the old home stadium, White Hart Lane. Tottenham broke down White Hart Lane and created Tottenham Hotspur Stadium again on the spot, creating a historic connection. The second is the southern stand where home fans are located. As many as 17,500 people can watch it, making it possible to create a tremendous atmosphere.
Finally, it was highly evaluated that the stadium divided into two floors was perfect for bringing fans together despite the shape of a bowl. However, Tottenham’s high ticket prices and notorious traffic congestion in London were the factors for the deduction.
James Mow, who runs the Tottenham podcast The View from the Lane, said, “The performance Tottenham showed on the field was not at the level that Europe would envy. But there’s no one who won’t be impressed on the pitch. However, transportation infrastructure has hardly improved and ticket prices are absurd. However, there is little doubt that Tottenham’s new home stadium is the best in the PL.
The advantage of modern stadiums, which can host a number of events such as football and concerts in addition to football based on state-of-the-art facilities, was also mentioned as one of the advantages of Tottenham Hotspur Stadium. Now Tottenham will be more complete with just a trophy in the world’s best stadium.
