Mauricio Pochettino is one of the best managers in the world and finished second in the league in 2016/17, highlighting their intent to become one of the top clubs in the world. Although they currently play at England’s home ground of Wembley, they are currently in the process of building a new stadium, which is looking as it could be one of the best and most impressive stadiums in the world.
Originally known as Hotspur, a wrongly-delivered letter, meant for another London team called London Hotspur, resulted in the team adopted the name Tottenham to avoid more confusion. As the club turned professional in 1895 they were admitted to division one of the Southern League in 1896 and won their first trophy in 1900 when they lifted the Southern League title.
The club made history the next year by becoming the first non-league outfit to win the FA Cup since the start of the Football League in 1888. After winning promotion to the top flight in 1909, they finished second in their first season as a top-flight club and remained there until the 1927-28 season.
Tottenham spent most of the 1930s and ‘40s teetering in the Second Division, with only a couple of forays back into the top flight during the 1933-34 & 1934-35 seasons. It wasn't until towards the end of the 1940's that the club got themselves back into the top division, which was largely thanks to the manager of the time Arthur Rowe who had been a player for the team himself in the past.
The most successful period in the club's history came to be known as “the Glory Years”, this occurred when Bill Nicholson became manager in 1958 and guided the team to trophy triumph three seasons in a row. They obtained the Double in 1961, the FA Cup in ‘62 and the Cup Winners’ Cup in ‘63, making them the first English team to win a European trophy.
Nicholson, known to be Spurs’ best manager ever, signed Jimmy Greaves during his tenure, who still holds the record for being the most prolific goal scorer in the history of the top flight. Tottenham added yet another European trophy to their cabinet after winning the UEFA Cup in 1971-72, but saw a period of decline, leading them to be relegated at the end of the 1976-77 season.
They were the first team to sign foreign player as they recruited Argentines Osvaldo Ardiles and Ricardo Villa, helping them bounce back to the top flight. During the 1980s, the club began a new phase of re-development at White Hart Lane, their home ground.
During this period, debt at the club led to a change in the boardroom, as future manager Terry Venables teamed up with Lord Alan Sugar in 1991 to take control of the club, which was already a business enterprise. During this exciting time, top players such as Paul Gascoigne and Gary Lineker joined the club as they went on to win the FA Cup for the eighth time.
Sugar then sold his shares to Joe Lewis and Daniel Levy in 2001, who know own 85% of the club. Spurs pushed for a high league finish in the early 2000s, but never achieved anything until late 2000s when they brought in players fit to challenge for the top places in the league as well as winning the League cup in 2008 under Juande Ramos.
In 2009, star player, Gareth Bale was bursting onto the scene, which led to a world record transfer to Real Madrid for £85m in 2013. Whilst Spurs splashed the cash on effectively a new squad, most practically flopped and they turned to youth. They signed former Southampton loanee, Toby Alderweireld and Dele Alli from MK Dons, building a solid, fluid, and competitive team.
However, striker Harry Kane is a player who came up through Tottenham’s youth system, and since he solidified his place in the squad in 2014/15, has gone on to show he is one of the best strikers in the world. In a bid to show how competitive Spurs were becoming, the board decided that a new stadium should be built, leading to fans saying goodbye to White Hart Lane in 2017.
Whilst their new stadium was under construction, Spurs played their home matches at Wembley, which is fitting for the stars they have in their squad such as Kane and Alli who represent the nation at the historic ground. They are now challenging in Europe and in the league, as well as play some of the most attractive football in England.
They always invest well in their squad and have Mauricio Pochettino in the driving seat, who seems to get the best out of place who aren’t necessarily regarded as ‘world class’. It is an exciting time to be a Spurs fan.
Spurs were one of the least active top clubs in the 2017 summer transfer window. Davinson Sánchez, Serge Aurier and Fernando Llorente were the headline signings as Pochettino looked to once again comfortably guide the club to a place in the following season’s Champions League and even potentially challenge for the Premier League title.
That didn’t happen, but it was more because of Manchester City’s brilliance as Spurs finished 3rd. The capture of Lucas Moura bolstered Pochettino’s attacking options in the January transfer window and helped the team reach the FA Cup Semi-Finals where they were beaten, for the eighth successive time at that stage, 2-1 by Manchester United.
Despite a Round of 16 exit in the 2017-18 Champions League, Spurs lit up the group stages and topped Group which also consisted of Real Madrid and Borussia Dortmund by winning all but one game, which they drew. Memorable moments include a 3-1 wins against eventual lifters Real and Dortmund at Wembley, as well as a 2-1 win in Germany.
Juventus narrowly knocked them out in the first knockout hurdle though, winning 2-1 in London following a 2-2 draw in Turin. It was all-round an enjoyable season for Spurs though and they’ll be looking to press on in their new stadium from 2018-19 onwards – if Harry Kane can reach anywhere near his 41-goal haul once again, anything’s possible.
Spurs have asked the FA whether they can play their first Premier League game of the season at Wembley due to a set-back in the development of their new ground, but it is set to open for a colossal clash with Liverpool on 15 September.
Unsurprisingly, it’s going to be ridiculously hard to get your paws on Tottenham Hotspur football tickets ahead of the launch of their new stadium if you’re not a season ticket holder or member. However, we can make it possible at an affordable price and offer you a safe and easy way of buying Tottenham Hotspur football tickets to watch one of the most exciting teams in the country. It’s not just the few Tottenham Hotspur football tickets here and there though, because as an authorised dealer Box Office Events offer all match tickets throughout the season as Spurs challenge for the Premier League title.
Tottenham Hotspur’s upcoming move to their new stadium, which still hasn’t been completed, is one that may price some Spurs fans out of seeing their side.
Fortunately, here at Box Office Events, we have created a useful guide into purchasing Tottenham tickets ahead of their first season inside their recently refurbished home.
For supporters wanting to secure a seat at all of Tottenham’s home Premier League matches and become one of the first ever regulars at their new stadium, then purchasing a season ticket is the option for you.
Spurs’ new ground will hold allow room for up to 42,000 season ticket holders; the significant majority of season tickets have been sold, but a limited amount are still purchasable.
Prices for season cards cost between £795 and £1,995 for adults aged 22-64, between £595 to £843.50 for young adults aged from 18 to 21 and ranging from £397.50 to £562.50 for senior citizens aged 65 and over and for juniors aged 17 and under. Cost of season tickets primarily depend on age and the location of the purchased seat.
This works out as costing between £41.84-£105 per match for adults, £31.32-£44.49 for young adults per home league game and between £20.92 and £29.61 for junior and senior season ticket holders.
There is also a premium season ticket package available called the 1882 season ticket, which is priced at £2,200 for the season, working out at £115.79 per match. The 1882 deal comes with a seat all home matches in the Premier League, FA Cup and Carabao Cup, access to a private bar which is located near to your seat, your name will be featured on all the stadium’s 1882 bars, a complimentary half-time drink, pre-match food, a free match programme for every game and a special edition 1882 welcome pack and pin.
The standard and the 1882 season tickets were intended to enable fans the opportunity to have the same guaranteed seat for all of Tottenham’s 19 Premier League home matches for the 2018/19 campaign, however, due to delays in construction works, Spurs’ first league match of the new season will be held at Wembley Stadium. Because of the relocation, Tottenham fans who have already purchased a season ticket will receive a refund of 1/19th of their total season ticket price for the year, which can be used to purchase the match ticket against Fulham, which will be provisionally taking place on Saturday 11th August 2018.
All standard season ticket holders will be entitled to priority access for purchasing tickets for home matches in all competitions outside of the Premier League, whilst 1882 season ticket holders will also receive the opportunity to purchase tickets for UEFA Champions League home matches before members.
Season ticket holders will also receive a welcome pack and a stadium access card, the use of the club’s ticket share and ticket exchange services and the opportunity to spread the cost of a season ticket across 10-month payment plan. The payment plan is only optional and is about £10-£15 more expensive than paying the fee as one lump sum.
Tottenham offer two different forms of membership, which are called, One Hotspur and One Hotspur +.
The regular One Hotspur membership is priced at £43 for adults aged between 18 and 64 and at £20 for juniors aged under 18 and for senior supporters aged 65 and over.

Tottenham’s own ticket exchange service allows season ticket holders to sell their seat for individual matches should they not be able to attend.
These tickets will be sold at face value and season ticket holders who sell their seat via this method will be paid the equivalent of 1/19th of their total season ticket fee.

General sale tickets do not cost anything more, but non-members buying tickets will have to pay a higher booking fee.
Tottenham’s stadium offers a whole host of hospitality packages and premium seating opportunities.
The On Four collection is a set of premium dining experiences on level four of the stadium, which aims to fusion together football with the highest possible quality of dining and entertainment.

Best places to sit at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium
The upper tiers on both the east and west sides of the stadium provide a spectacular view of the entire pitch, although you will still get a great sight of the action from any seat on either the top or middle tiers of the ground.
Tottenham Hotspur Stadium information and facts
The first ever game to be played at the new stadium will be in the Premier League against Liverpool, with a provisional date of Saturday 15th September 2018.
It is located on High Road in Tottenham, North London; Postcode: N17 0AP
Currently, the new ground will take the name of Tottenham’s former previous home at White Hart Lane. However, it has been reported that if a sponsorship deal is agreed, the club will use a different name for its new ground. Construction of the new stadium is being built on the site of their former stadium.
Once built, it will have a capacity of 62,062 seats and with an area ready in place, should a future approval arise to allow safe standing.
The capacity of more than 60,000 will make the football ground the third largest in England, only behind their current temporary home at Wembley Stadium and Manchester United’s Old Trafford.
It will also act as a new home for at least two National Football League games in London each season. The league invested £10 million into the stadium’s construction project and the ground will have two retractable pitches, one for football and one for American Football.
White Hart Lane is the nearest train station to the ground, located just a five-minute walk away from the stadium; this station operates services on the London Overground.
The nearest underground station is at Tottenham Hale, which is roughly a 20-minute walk from Spurs’ new home.
Tottenham Hotspur Football Club and White Hart Lane both have four bus stops each, all of which are less than a 10-minute walk away from the ground.
There are nine floors inside the stadium; the ground’s single-tier stand has a capacity of 17,500 seats and is located just five meters away from the goal line, which should create a unique and spectacular atmosphere at that part of the stadium.
Inside the stadium’s concourse will be five different food outlets and five different bars.
The N17 Grill will be serving burgers and steak sandwiches, whilst fans looking for classic fish and chips should head to the Linesman. Fried chicken will be served at the Chicken House, the Naan & Noodle will be offering a whole host of Asian street food. The final food option is at the Smashed Olive, who specialise in Mediterranean street food.
Located in every stand of the stadium will be the Tap Inn, serving a selection of Beers and Ciders, including the club’s official partners Heineken, as well as Old Mout Cider, Amstel and Strongbow.
Inside the South Stand on Level 1 will be the Goal Line Bar, its name reflects its 65-meter length and stretches for the entire length of the goal line. To its right is The Shelf, which has been constructed using old bricks from the East Stand of Tottenham’s previous home and will use metalwork from the old Shelf, designed by Archibald Leitch.
Level 5 is where the ground’s other two ‘high street style bars’ can be found. On the East Stand is the White Hart, a bar which pays testament to Spurs’ former stomping ground and aims to provide a nostalgic feel for all visitors wishing to reminisce. On the parallel West Stand is the Dispensary, which is based on the old Dispensary on Tottenham High Road.
The stadium is also becoming a cashless one, meaning that all fans will have to pay for refreshments via an app or via a contactless card. This is to reduce waiting times so that ground staff can provide a faster service.
