UK Trip 2022 – Day 5 – Spurs, West Ham, and Man City

Day 5 Review – Ava, Nyan, Rohan

Tottenham Hotspurs FC Stadium Tour

The first half of the day was spent at the Tottenham Hotspur stadium in London. We toured the enormous stadium which had many cool features. For example, the pitch could be transformed into an American football field, there was a Skywalk where you could walk on the roof, a bungee jumping area, the stadium actually had trophies that Tottenham won, and many more fantastic areas. The tour was amazing; We had tiny tablets that told us what we were looking at and it had pre-recorded messages from the players. We saw the trophies they’ve won, sat where fans, VIP’s, players, and even where Antonio Conte (Tottenham Hotspur Head Coach) is supposed to sit. We went into the away team’s dressing room which was filled with various other team’s jerseys. In Tottenham’s changing room, we got to take pictures with the teams actual kits! There was even a changing room for NFL teams, which held the NFL jerseys & helmets of all the teams that have played at the stadium since it’s first NFL game in 2019. We saw where players and coaches do their post match interviews and some of us even got a picture with Antonio Conte edited in! To wrap up the tour, we went to the gift shop which we learned was the world’s largest retail store in a stadium. It was a great experience and unlike their actual team, the billion dollar stadium left us impressed.

Now we are on our way to see West Ham United vs Manchester City at the London Olympic Stadium, Go Irons!


We exited the coach and entered the stadium. The London Olympic stadium was a lot bigger than Selhurst park, and seated nearly double the amount of people. The game started off well for West Ham, but Man City dominated the rest of the game, giving West Ham a living nightmare. When West Ham fans cheered, the atmosphere was a lot louder than that of Crystal Palace’s. However, the stadium was unfortunately quiet from West Ham fans due to the lack of possession of the ball. The game ended as a 2-0 loss for the Irons, with Haaland scoring both. Despite lots of Man City passing around West Ham, the game was a good watch. We enjoyed our second premier league game and we can’t wait to see what this trip offers next!
