This is very Spursy.

Tottenham Hotspur are being forced to amend posters advertising the club's multi-million pound stadium after errors were spotted by fans commuting on the London Underground.

The advertisements, which have appeared at a series of London Underground stations in north London, will be removed after the club's official Twitter account said they were aware of the mistakes and would be taking action to correct them.

In one poster promoting the wide range of hospitality suites on offer at the refurbished White Hart Lane stadium, the word 'premium' is misspelled on two separate occasions.

"Book an exclusive VR experience for new premum [sic] packages at Tottenham," reads one line of the advertisement.

Beneath the poster typo is a website that includes the same word spelt 'premiun' in the website URL.

Tottenham are in the process of promoting their new 61,000-seat stadium and, despite an overall cost of £750 million, it seems the club's budget did not stretch to a professional copywriter.

Tottenham are hoping there will be a keen interest in their premium packages, with prices ranging from £89 to £214.

Premium seats will also include heated seats and even USB ports for charging phones and connecting computers.

Spurs recently released new images of multi-million stadium redevelopment which will include glass-walled ‘Tunnel Club’ allowing supporters a behind-the-scenes view of the players tunnel.

Fans will also be able to purchase seats behind the managers’ technical area – at a price of £339 per ticket per match.

The club's new hospitality suites will also include an exclusive ‘H Club’ “with Michelin star calibre dining” and with tickets costing £535 a game.

Tottenham manager, Mauricio Pochettino, joked places in the unique 'Tunnel Club' should be very expensive to deter fans from witnessing previously unseen clashes.

“Dangerous. Dangerous. Because there have been a lot of things in the tunnel!” he said. “It is for that it will be very expensive!”
