Tottenham Hotspur is introducing the first stand-alone NFL visitor attraction outside of the US, with the football club adding an American Football tour to its stadium experience.

The tour will give visitors a glimpse of Tottenham's bespoke NFL facilities in its new stadium, with visitors given the chance to "step into life as an NFL athlete" as they are taken through the purpose-built team facilities, including locker rooms, player and staff preparation areas and a customised press conference suite, before having the chance to see authentic players’ equipment such as jerseys, balls, pads and gloves. The iconic Vince Lombardi Trophy – presented to the winners of the Super Bowl – will also be on display, with visitors getting a look at the prize inside the NFL Commissioner’s Suite.

The Tottenham Hotspur Stadium is the first in the world to feature two different pitches – one for football and one for NFL football. After coming through the dedicated NFL players' tunnel, visitors will be able to see the specially-designed artificial NFL pitch, which sits underneath the retractable grass pitch used by Tottenham for Premier League matches.

During the experience, guides will explore the history of the NFL in the UK, what it takes to deliver NFL games in the UK, and the design, technology and function of the stadium’s unique purpose-built NFL facilities. Tours will start on 7 October running through to early November with further dates to be added in due course.

The Premier League football club is set to host two NFL games at its new stadium later this year, with the Chicago Bears taking on the Oakland Raiders on 6 October, followed by the Carolina Panthers against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on 13 October. These games will be the first-ever played inside a purpose-built NFL venue outside of the US.

"Some of the biggest names in the sport will travel to Tottenham to take part in these historic fixtures," said a Tottenham statement. "As excitement builds ahead of our first-ever NFL games at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, we're delighted to offer this unique NFL version of our popular guided stadium tour."
