Daniel Levy wants new Tottenham stadium to host Champions League final

Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy wants the club's state-of-the-art new stadium to host the Champions League
The Tottenham Hotspur Stadium was finally opened earlier this month and has so far hosted three senior games, including the first leg of their Champions League quarter-final clash with Manchester City.
But Levy wants to go a few steps further by hosting the final of the illustrious competition itself, insisting the 62,062-seat arena would be a first class choice for the showpiece event.
Speaking to the Evening Standard
, Levy said: 'We have been delighted with the reaction from our fans and all visitors since we officially opened our new home two weeks ago. Our aim was always to create an iconic multi-use venue capable of hosting world-class events.
'We have the top UEFA stadium status, which means the venue is fit to stage any European football event, and we believe the stadium's extensive capabilities, particularly the flexibility of having two surfaces, mean we can host a vast range of world-class sporting and entertainment events.
'We'd be open to having conversations if the relevant organisations were interested in using our stadium.
'We want this venue to be visited by millions throughout the year and having secured such big attractions in Tottenham like Premier League football, Saracens and the NFL, this can only boost the economy in London.'
Tottenham fans finally got to see inside their new £1billion home 22-months on from their White Hart Lane departure.
The ground was hit by several delays, however, fans feel the stadium was worth the wait considering its outstanding facilities.
The ground boasts four giant HD screens, a record-breaking 17,500 seat stand and even a micro-brewery. 
The finals for future Champions League competitions will be decided in September by UEFA's Executive Committee; if Tottenham intended to host one of those finals, for the period 2021-23, they would need to have confirmed their intention to bid by March 22. 
This year's final will take place at Atletico Madrid's new stadium, the Wanda Metropolitano, on June 1.
