Spurs unveiled the news on Monday as their new Tottenham Hotspur Stadium at White Hart Lane will initially be used as a storage facility for the London Food Alliance, which will ensure that the most vulnerable people in London will be supplied with food during the COVID-19 outbreak.

Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy issued the following statement:

“As a club, we have always been clear about our commitment to the wider community – never has this been more important than it is now. We are immensely proud of the efforts of everybody involved in the fight against COVID-19 and see today as just the start of what we can do as a club to assist.”

Like many Premier League clubs, Tottenham are at the heart of their local community and their stunning new venue is ideally equipped to help in this time of need in the UK and particularly in London.

Several Premier League clubs have donated huge sums to local food banks and their own club foundations which help out vulnerable people in their respective local communities and the likes of Pep Guardiola have donated over $1 million to help the fight against coronavirus in his homeland of Spain.

Premier League clubs are stepping up in this time of crisis and we will no doubt see even more of them offer up their facilities for organizations to use in order to help out the most vulnerable people across the UK.
