The worst kept secret at Spurs was officially revealed today as news broke that NFL games will be played at the new stadium.
Tottenham have signed a ten year deal that will see at least two NFL games a year played at the new White Hart Lane when the stadium opens in 2018, with the clear potential of playing host to a full NFL franchise in London. Here’s how Twitter reacted to the news.

If a deal with the NFL does genuinely help in some way to rejuvenate Tottenham as an area, then it shouldn't be sneered at.

It's sad that football is all about money, but it is. Therefore today's NFL announcement is major good news for Spurs.

Ideally, I'd really quite like a perk of the NFL deal/money to be that the naming rights of the stadium would no longer be up for sale #THFC
