The Spurs are back at White Hart Lane and by Christ, if the opening ceremony is anything to go by, things are going to be emotional this evening tonight against Crystal Palace.
Mauricio Pochettino last played at their home stadium on the final day of the 2017 Premier League and despite being scheduled to return home at the beginning of the current campaign, delays have seen the reappearance in N17 put back to tonight.
With over 62,000 supporters packed into the new arena - almost twice the size of their pre-renovation capacity - a local choir performed in the centre circle alongside a drumming band.
The band then ushered Harry Kane and co. out on to the new turf for the first time, with Welsh tenor Wynne Evans accompanying the choir in belting out a highly charged rendition of Glory Glory Tottenham Hotspur.

On the field, Spurs will be hoping to start life on their new patch with a win against their cross-city rivals.
Mauricio Pochettino's side has not tasted victory in their last five Premier League games, being beaten by Burnley, Chelsea, Southampton and Liverpool in the process. It's a run that has seen the North Londoners go from solid title contenders to clinging on to their Top 4 position in the space of just over a month.
With Champions League football an important financial carrot to Spurs especially now with the outlay on the new stadium, performances and, perhaps more importantly, results at the new stadium between now and the end of the season will prove crucial.
The new stadium features include a retractable pitch which can be removed to uncover a synthetic surface underneath the real grass pitch. It takes only 25 minutes to turnaround the playing surface to NFL stipulations, a key consideration with White Hart Lane signing a deal to host NFL games in the UK over the foreseeable future.
There's also a microbrewery on site, as well as a food and drinks market in the South Stand.
It has been reported that the new structure has cost upwards of £1 billion to build.
