Harry Kane insists that he is expecting an “amazing” atmosphere at Wembley in Tottenham Hotspur’s first Champions League fixture of the season against Monaco on Wednesday.

Spurs, who finished third in the Premier League last term, have agreed a deal with Wembley Stadium to play their European home fixtures at the ground this season.

Tottenham are building a new stadium adjacent to their current ground, White Hart Lane, which will fail to meet UEFA’s requirements on stadium access, capacity and rights delivery as a result.

The 90,000-seater Wembley will be close to full capacity on Wednesday, which will not only break Spurs’ record home attendance, but may also shatter the record of highest attendance in a Champions League home game in Britain.

And Kane, whose side thrashed Stoke City 4-0 in the Premier League at the weekend, explained that Spurs are relishing the prospect of playing at Wembley.


"Wembley will be amazing”, the striker told the club’s official site.

“It’s going to be a record crowd for the club, it's at our national stadium and it’s going to be an incredible atmosphere, amazing.

“We’re all excited, we can’t wait."

Tottenham are playing in the Champions League for the first time since the 2010/11 campaign, when they were eliminated from the quarter-finals by Real Madrid.
