Tottenham's new stadium: All you need to know about Spurs' new £1billion  ground | Football News | Sky Sports

The Tottenham Hotspur Stadium has been vandalised, causing significant damage to the £1.2billion stadium.

Mail Sport has learned that Spurs’ home ground has been targeted during the international break, resulting in parts of the ground being damaged.

A person has been arrested following the incident on Monday night.

There are no indications the incident is motivated by the ongoing Israel/Palestine conflict, pertinent given Tottenham’s strong ties to the Jewish community.

Sources have indicated that the cost of the damage will run into at least six-figures.

A Tottenham statement read: ‘We can confirm that an individual was arrested for criminal damage following an incident that took place on Monday night.

‘There is no indication that this incident is linked to anti-semitism.’

The stadium holds a capacity of 63,000, making it the biggest club ground in London and second only to Manchester United’s Old Trafford in the Premier League.

It hosted its first top-flight fixture in April 2019.

The club played at White Hart Lane for 118 years before it was demolished in 2017.
