Writing on Twitter, journalist Alasdair Gold has issued an unexpected update on approved Tottenham plans to build a Gladiator-style amphitheatre outside Enfield Centre.
Claiming that it’s ‘something I didn’t expect’, Gold dropped a surprising update that an amphitheatre will be structured outside Tottenham’s training facility in an effort to encourage community and team bonding.
Something I didn’t expect to write today, Spurs will be building an outdoor amphitheatre at their training ground to help with team bonding among other things. I have visions of Russell Crowe in Gladiator now with Daniel Levy giving a thumbs up or down. https://t.co/X7iNYOGDWq

Tottenham surprises keep coming
Spurs apparently applied to build the amphitheatre in August, with the planning department approving their submission last month as construction looks set to begin (Football.London). The structure will be put in place to offer groups the chance to gather in a more informal setting, something which may help encourage team bonding as well as communal spirit.
Encouraged as a use for educational purposes, this project looks likely to benefit the wider Enfield area as well as the Tottenham playing squad, with Hotspur Way already boasting a wide range of facilities.
Containing a multimillion-pound players’ lodge and 15 grass pitches, the amphitheatre will now be added as part of an already impressive set up at the north London club (Tottenham Hotspur). It will also seat around 60 people, encouraging the purpose of large gatherings in a setting that may help with overall communal and team communication.
Planning to sink the build 0.45m below ground level, the 11-metre-wide dome will apparently not impact the visual area either, but as of yet there has been no confirmed date on when this project will be completed.
Transfer Tavern take
Having already invested significantly in the squad, Spurs chairman Daniel Levy’s latest move now puts emphasis back on outside investments which could benefit the Lilywhites long-term.
After 18 months at their state-of-the-art Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, Spurs players and supporters alike can now expect another grand project to be completed in the coming year.
Spurs fans, will you be visiting the amphitheatre upon completion? Have your say in the comments section below…
