TOTTENHAM HOTSPURS’ new £1bn stadium will NOT have a VIP cheese room ‘upsetting’ fans who referred to it as the highlight of the state-of-the-art ground.
An exclusive ‘H Club’ was previously announced at a stadium preview in 2017 to include an option for clients to “select their own specially sourced half-time cheeses”.
Mauricio Pochettino’s side were scheduled to move into their new home in September but a series of delays led to them spending their season at the national stadium.
Despite this, anticipation for the opening of the 61,000-capacity stadium continues to draw excitement after unique features would include a microbrewery and heated seats.
However, according to the Guardian, the much talked about cheese room will no longer be happening after the club revealed there were no plans for it in the first place.
As ever with a shocking development with their new ground, Spurs fans were quick to vent their ‘fury’ at the club with one posting: “Why are we even building this stadium then?!?!”
User Levy and Lewis Out agreed with that post, writing: “Cheers, Son’s crying,” while another posted: “You gotta Brie kidding me!”
One fan believes the reason the cheese room will no longer be happening is that “Levy only wanted Dairylea triangles as they were much cheaper than Edam & Brie.”
Tottenham were expected to confirm last week when the new White Hart Lane is due to open amid reports the ground will not be fully finished this season.
Spurs’ latest announcement dashed hopes that the North London derby would be held at their new stadium because safety tests will not be completed in time.

Spurs will be hoping that the clash against Crystal Palace on March 17 will be played at their new ground but if it isn’t, fans can expect the “photo of doom” to reappear.
In the meantime, Spurs will be hosting Borussia Dortmund in the first leg of the Last 16 Champions League tie and Hugo Lloris has urged the fans to help his team.
The French keeper said: “We need to obviously improve the team performance, compared to today, and we need the stadium to push, to help us.
“On some days, like today it’s difficult to deal with Wembley. But hopefully in this big game we’ll receive this help from the crowd.”
