Spurs have unveiled the new ‘premium areas’ that will be commonplace in their new plush stadium – and the club’s regular supporters are, frankly, less than impressed.
The North London club have been building a 60,000 all-seated stadium for some time now, and are currently playing their home matches this season at Wembley ahead of moving into their new home in the summer of 2018.
The latest, exclusive images of the premium areas at #SpursNewStadium ? ?

All in all, Spurs’ glamorous new surroundings will be the biggest stadium in London and will be used to house NFL games and, as is the modern way of things these days, will have plenty of VIP areas to take care of corporate guests.
As you can see in the image above, the club’s Twitter account revealed the first pictures of the premium areas today, and the reaction from the everyday fan wasn’t too clever:
Football should be about getting a pie and a pint standing in the freezing cold. Absolute joke of a club

This is a little bit Arse*al if you ask me. It’s ok to have it, just don’t tell the world because I don’t want to be known as the prawn sandwich brigade

What do you think of the sections? Is this just something that we need to put up with in the modern game?
