TIPL Tottenham Hotspur Stadium NHS match

Tottenham Hotspur Stadium played host to a unique match to thank the medical staff from the North Middlesex University Hospital and Whittington Hospital.

Tottenham Hotspur welcomed NHS staff from both the North Middlesex University Hospital and Whittington Hospital to their stadium in May, giving them the opportunity to play on the pitch.

Club legends Gary Mabbutt and Ossie Ardiles took charge of the hospital teams for the activity, which was a thank you to the medical staff who have continued to support the local community during the pandemic.

Tottenham Hotspur and their partners' ongoing help for both hospitals during COVID-19 included North Middlesex moving its Women's Outpatient Services to the stadium in April 2020.

That service alone saw more than 41,500 appointments delivered at the stadium.

The on-pitch activity saw North Middlesex run out 4-3 winners and Sonny Driver, captain of North Middlesex University Hospital, said: "The past year has no doubt been a challenge but having the opportunity to step away and play on an iconic pitch which is home to football legends was an incredible experience - one that we will never forget."
