The McLaren site team gave the players a guided walk-through of the new centre at Bull’s Cross in Enfield.
McLaren has been on site since last July and the centre is due to be finished by summer 2012.
Manager Harry Redknapp said: “Absolutely fantastic. What a facility for players to come and work in every day and for young players who are thinking about coming to Spurs.
“You won’t find a better training facility than this anywhere. It’s got everything a player would need – top class facilities and fantastic pitches.
“Hopefully we can create a great atmosphere around the place when we move here to match the facility.”
Defender Michael Dawson said: “It’s fantastic. It’s still a year away from being finished, but when you look at the plans and you see it already taking shape, you know it’s going to be special.
“We’re a top team and we need top facilities, and it will all be here, and the players are going to benefit from it.”
The new training centre will be the new home for the Club’s First Team and Youth Academy and will include:
· 11 outdoor pitches – one artificial pitch and ten natural grass. The main pitch to the professional squad area will be designed to the same quality and design as the pitch proposed for the New Spurs Stadium; complete with undersoil heating.
· A two storey training centre, which also has a basement, which has been designed by architects KSS to be an integral part of the landscape. The building has been designed around a 70 x 50m indoor artificial pitch which features a transparent ETFE roof similar to the EDEN project in Cornwall.
· The building also incorporates a learning centre for the Academy and educational space, medical facilities, a hydrotherapy / swimming pool, fitness centre/gym, changing rooms, a canteen and media centre.
