As relayed by reliable Lilywhites correspondent Alasdair Gold, the Atlanta Falcons have confirmed the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium is set to host NFL games again in October – which the journalist describes as a ‘boost for Spurs’ flagging finances’.
The Falcons, releasing a statement, confirmed that they will serve as the home team in a game later this year as part of this season’s NFL international series.
Gold relays Tottenham Hotspur stadium boost
Final scheduling of the game is ‘subject to the status of the COVID virus, travel restrictions and game-attendance allowances’, but Gold has revealed this news comes as a big boost for chairman Daniel Levy and Tottenham.
As the quest for stadium naming rights goes on, the Atlanta Falcons will play one of either the Philadelphia Eagles, Detroit Lions, New England Patriots, New York Jets or the Washington Football Team – and revenue from the encounter later in 2021 will come as a significant financial bolster.
The Tottenham Hotspur Stadium has hosted NFL encounters twice before, with both occasions proving to be enormous successes according to Gold, attracting crowds of more than 60,000.
Levy and Spurs receive a flat rental fee to use the ground from the NFL, with Tottenham also benefitting from all of the food and drink net income plus merchandising profits every time an American Football game is hosted.
Apparently, back in 2019, £1 million was earned through beer sales alone as Spurs set a new record.
Transfer Tavern take
Gold, relaying this news, therefore has revealed this comes as a big boost to the Lilywhites ‘flagging finances‘ – coming after the ground has been unable to host NFL encounters over this past year due to coronavirus.
The sport will return to north London this summer, with Levy and co set for a much needed financial lift.
