Tottenham Hotspur Stadium (London)

Populous has been the driving force behind well-known stadium designs (Kansas City's Arrowhead, London's Emirates, Pittsburgh's Heinz Field, to name a few). So it’s no surprise that such a venerable firm also spearheaded the all-new Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, whose home team is one of the most exciting teams in English soccer. The glass arena is mainly used for English Premier League football matches, but its retractable turf can easily be moved to accommodate American NFL football games and concerts too. There’s plenty to keep visitors busy: a sprawling atrium food hall, a microbrewery, a café, three pubs, and Europe’s longest bar (more than 200 feet). The crown jewel, however, is the upper-level glass walkway leading to the cockerel statue above the field.
