New Spurs stadium: tunnel views at eyewatering prices

Wealthy fans will be able to watch players through one-way mirrors and feast on Michelin-starred food

Spurs have given fans a glimpse of what their state of the art new stadium will look like when it opens in 2018 with a series of new images and a video.

Tottenham's new £750m home, which is being built next to White Hart Lane, will have a capacity of 61,000, making it London's biggest football ground. The new stadium will have countless innovations, including an exclusive 'tunnel club' which will offer members the chance to watch the players in the tunnel before kick off through one-way mirrors.

"The new imagery is to show the progress of the stadium, set to open next year, with Spurs accepting interest in their premium packages which also include heated seats and even USB ports at each seat," says the Daily Telegraph.

But the tickets won't come cheap, says the Daily Mail. "Two tickets – they are only available as a pair – for the Spurs Tunnel Club will cost £19,000 per season, with 104 packages on offer and a one-off membership fee of £30,000."

Even more expensive is membership of the H Club, which costs £30,000 per season, plus a £30,000 membership fee

"Inside the H Club – for which there are 176 packages available – there will be a Michelin star dining experience, with cheese waiter and sommelier on hand to select for you the perfect wine to accompany a disappointing draw against Stoke," says Matt Barlow of the Daily Mail. "And there will be pies."

Other innovations at the new ground include a microbrewery and an in-house bakery.

"Of the 61,000 seats, 7,000 will be corporate while other key features from a number of variously priced packages include the longest bar – over 86 metres – in the United Kingdom, self-serve beer pumps in order to cut queues, while individual images of the starting XI will be projected onto screens when the teams are announced," reveals Sky Sports.

"The 17,000 one-tier stand, the biggest of its kind in the UK and inspired by Borussia Dortmund's 'yellow wall', promises to deliver a rousing atmosphere. The front row will only be five metres away from the goal line and the designers have worked with acoustics experts linked to U2 to boost noise levels."
