Heading to White Hart Lane was never anything like this for the residents of North London, but these are unprecedented times in the modern era of football.
Tottenham Hotspur Stadium has become the extended home of North Middlesex University Hospital, and Spurs’ home looks quite unusual as the Premier League outfit helps the NHS in England.

How different is it? The stadium’s giant parking area is being used to test medical workers and their families for COVID-19, and its technology campus has been turned into a protective mask production facility churning out 2000 face shields per week.
Spurs also laid out where Women’s Outpatient Services are being conducted (via TottenhamHotspur.com).
• Our Media Entrance and Café is used as a main reception and welfare area for visitors and NHS staff.
• The NFL Away changing room areas is used as a Maternal Day Unit.
• Our Flash interview rooms off of the players’ tunnel – where post-match TV interviews are normally conducted – as well as the referees’ area, are used as consultation and scanning rooms.
• The football Away dressing room area is used as a Midwives Clinical Room and staff Admin Office.
The club’s stadium was the first PL ground to be used for testing, as Spurs have been one of the many clubs putting their influence and resources to use in the battle against coronavirus.
