New images of Tottenham Hotspur's forthcoming White Hart Lane stadium, currently under construction in north London, show the scale of the four huge display screens which will dominate the stadium's seating bowl.

Supplied by AV specialist Daktronics, the four bespoke main LED video displays will total more than 1,000sq m in size.

This includes two screens in the single tier, 17,500-capacity South Stand, each measuring 325sq m – making them the largest screens in any stadium in Europe and among the biggest in the world.

Two additional screens in the North Stand will each measure 190.7 square metres, while two LED video displays will feature on the South West and South East façades, fitted on the exterior of the stadium, each measuring 178.9 square metres.

Every main display will feature 13HD pixel layouts.

The stadium bowl will also include three tiers of digital ribbon – a first for any European stadium.

The upper and middle tier ribbons will run from the East to West Stands through the North Stand, measuring 387m and 348m long respectively, while the suite-tier ribbon will be split into two runs along the East and West Stands, measuring 122m long on the East Stand and 105m long on the West.

Matthew Collecott, director of operations at Tottenham Hotspur, said: "We have pushed Daktronics to deliver something that will truly set us apart and these installations will play a significant role as part of our commitment to setting a new standard in fan experience in sports and entertainment."

The club also announced its commitment to phasing out single-use plastics across all club operations at the new stadium.

There will be no plastic straws, stirrers, cutlery or any plastic disposable packaging used at the stadium, while all new supplier contracts will include a requirement to reduce single-use plastics.

Chair Daniel Levy said: "As a club we have always taken our responsibility to care for our environment seriously. We have demonstrated this with the environmentally sensitive development of our Training Centre, where we have preserved historic hedgerows and planted for the future and which will see us adding an Environmental Centre and Nature Reserve there too. Another first by the Club.

"We shall now be bringing our values to the new stadium to both play our part in the reduction of single-use plastics and raise awareness of the importance of doing so."
