The Lowdown: Incredible event takes place…
Last weekend, the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium played host to what was a huge event and one which will have attracted plenty of publicity for Spurs’ new state of the art ground.
Indeed, last Saturday, the Lilywhites’ stadium oversaw one of the biggest heavyweight boxing fights of the year as Oleksandr Usyk upset British favourite Anthony Joshua on points to clinch the WBA, WBO and IBF world championship belts.
Spurs’ new ground received high praise from the boxing community for playing it’s part in hosting the event, with Robinson now suggesting a stadium naming rights boost as a result.
The Lowdown: Robinson suggests Spurs stadium naming rights boost…
Speaking to FI, the former Lilywhites keeper has suggested that Tottenham hosting Joshua vs Usyk will gift chairman Daniel Levy a boost in finding a lucrative deal for Spurs’ stadium naming rights.
As claimed by the same outlet, Tottenham are in talks to secure an agreement and want a 10-year deal worth around £25 million-per-year.
“It was an incredible event and an incredible event on the world stage,” Robinson told Football Insider.
“It would have done wonders publicity-wise for the stadium.
“Everyone you speak to about that stadium says, ‘Wow. What a stadium. That’s unbelievable. I’ve never seen anything like it.’
“When you look at the boxes, the hospitality, the light shows, the sound system and the infrastructure – there is nothing like it in the world.
“Hopefully, that event will increase interest in a naming rights deal and maybe even push it over the edge.”
The Verdict: Good publicity…
Spurs playing host to huge events of this magnitude will only demonstrate the value of Tottenham’s state of the art ground, so we believe Robinson is spot on with his claim.
After nearly two years of financial losses due to coronavirus, with the club announcing an ‘irrecoverable’ amount at one point, it is arguably imperative that Levy secures a naming rights agreement as soon as possible.
It is little wonder that reports suggest it is an off-field ‘priority‘ for the Lilywhites chief.
