Looking at up coming events at the stadium ...couple of rugby matches, guns and roses Lady gaga. Obviously there will be 2 x NFL matches in Oct . I believe we can have 16 non football events at the stadium so we look quite a way short of the max. Thought they would have quite a few concerts lined up by now as they don’t need to bother about the pitch.
I would have thought Daniel would be busting a gut to get maximum money from these opportunities.
Anyone know any more about this subject,

Concerts everyone is at it now.

Foo fighters at the London stadium
Killers at the emirates.
Westlife at Wembley.

Plenty of choice out there I guess.

Yes but they can only have one or two as it knackers the pitch. We don’t have that problem. We could have two every week in the summer. These things are usually organised well in advance so not look8ng as if we can get to our maximum of events unless things are in the pipeline which I hope they are.

We will have the Bootleg Beatles / Counterfeit Stones and Bjorn Again if our transfer dealings are anything to go by

I guess it all comes down to cost though.

If hiring WHL is a lot more than other places doesn’t matter how many slots we have available.

Experience of spurs would say we won’t be the cheapest option out there.

I suspect our world-beating transport links (ahem) might have something to do with it as opposed to some of the others.
Some promoters probably worried a 20 minute plus walk through Tottenham at 11 o'clock at night might put the uninitiated off...?

We’re not that stupid. The drink was reasonably priced when the ground opened. Daniel might not be good at football but he is usually good where money is concerned

Being cheaper to hire than the London stadium isn’t being clever though is it? Just means you’re cheap. That’s not good selling.

Our stadium is a premium experience compared to that place.
 
Soap dispensers at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium
Experience dictates that some bright spark will copy this section of the newsletter and claim on social media that it is proof we focus on the wrong things, but while we fully recognise it’s an issue far below, for example, the conduct of Club transfer policy on fans’ lists of concerns, it’s nonetheless an issue that has been raised by a good number of people.

Soap dispensers in the stadium toilets are regularly empty, and we’re being increasingly informed of taps not working either. This has been raised with stadium management and we’re told there is an issue with some of the central piping system. We’ve urged the Club to fix this as soon as possible. With the need for regular hand-washing still being emphasised as a way to control the spread of the coronavirus, the need to make sure fans don’t have to play soap and water roulette should be obvious.

This issue is one of a number of complaints we are getting from match-going fans that suggests the attention to standards for General Admission fans is slipping a little. Please keep giving us your feedback, positive as well as negative.

Maybe they can fill the hand sanitiser dispensers at the same time. They’ve all been empty for months.
 
Our ticket policy is weird

There are tens of thousands resale tickets available for Soton and Wolves and there will be attendances of c.45k so 15k empty seats yet non members cannot buy a ticket

Who is in charge of this fuckery? Short sighted nonsense trying to trap people into signing up to a £50 membership and not seeing the damage to the brand of a half empty stadium

It stops a load of away fans from getting tickets in the home seats?

It's a licencing requirement, otherwise away fans can just sign up and buy tickets.
