Sunday’s match against Manchester United marks a momentous occasion in Tottenham Hotspur’s history as the club say a final farewell to White Hart Lane, its famous home of 118 years.
The club will play their home games at Wembley for the duration of the 2017-18 season while construction is completed on a new stadium at White Hart Lane.
To celebrate the last day at its home of over a century, Tottenham has encouraged fans to remain in the stadium after the final whistle for a poignant Farewell Ceremony.
The event will feature former players, along with the current First Team and coaching staff and players from within the Club’s Academy – marking our past, present and exciting future.
Fans will be provided with a pack upon arrival into the stadium that includes a special edition t-shirt and flag, which we ask you to raise during the final Farewell to create a lasting vision of the Lane in all its glory.
Speaking about his memories of White Hart Lane, club legend, captain, Steve Perryman, who recorded 436 appearances at the Lane, over 100 more than anyone else, said:
“It’s the place where I grew up and I had great people to help me do that during my time at Spurs. However, as wonderful as the place is – a stadium of excellence, talent, brilliance and, of course, despair as well – it’s the people inside who made it.
“The people who work there, the supporters who come to the games and create the atmosphere – that’s what makes White Hart Lane so special. The stadium will always be a treasured memory for me, a Spur forever.”
