Tottenham denies Nike stadium naming-rights – report

English Premier League football club Tottenham Hotspur has denied claims that its new home is set to be called ‘The Nike Stadium’.

Sports broadcaster beIN Sports claimed in a video posted on Twitter earlier today (Friday) that the sportswear giant had sealed a naming-rights deal for the 62,000-seat venue. The video was swiftly deleted.

Reports have claimed that Tottenham’s first match at the state-of-the-art facility will take place on April 7 against Brighton & Hove Albion.

Tottenham sources told the Daily Mail newspaper that no such deal has been agreed.

The club’s move from its temporary home at Wembley Stadium to the new venue has been delayed on numerous occasions this season.

However, Tottenham is planning to hold further test events at the stadium from the end of next week in order to receive a safety certificate from Haringey Council.
