Spurs will finally play their first home game at their new ground against Crystal Palace on Wednesday, having now made all the final security checks holding it back.

They are using the latest technology to cut out crowd trouble which has raised its ugly head this season with high profile cases in the UK.

Spurs are leaving no stone unturned as they aim for their stadium to be at the forefront of dealing with hooliganism.

This ranges from sophisticated magnetic scanners to an elaborate camera system.

A club spokesman told the Daily Star Online a fresh security plan has been put in place that would use the best equipment available.

He said: “The club treats security with the utmost importance and has implemented a raft of measures as part of the new stadium such as traffic bollards around the stadium perimeter.

“There will be road closures and vehicle mitigation devices in the wider neighbourhood as well as increased levels of CCTV.”

There are even special scanners that have been installed outside the club shop.

Fans going into the stadium will pass through a strict layer of security.

The club spokesman continued: “Magnetometers are to be used and the latest technological handheld equipment for searching.

“A bag policy has been implemented and there are canine teams.”

The club are marketing the new £800 million ground as the best in the world.

Manager Mauricio Pocchetino said: “I think it’s amazing. Everyone was surprised by the magnitude of the project.

“The stadium is the best in the world, we can confirm that now. Every space is the best I have seen in my life, you can’t compare it with anything.”

The club have held two matches to test security – an under 18 game and a “legends” match – and now they are ready for the first Premier League clash.

Backing up the claim of being the best stadium in the world is a 17,500 seater stand that has been based on Borussia Dortmund’s famous “yellow wall”.

Aside from the football there are imaginative food concourses and a goal line bar – the longest in Europe.
