Dr. Antonios (Tony) Antoniou fulfills the roles of CEO and consultant at Financial Research, Training & Consulting, LLP. Outside of his professional life, Dr. Antonios Antoniou is a fan of the British football team Tottenham Hotspur.

Tottenham Hotspur’s stadium site recently underwent construction to increase seating, and the full capacity will exceed 61,000 people starting in 2018. A canopy that originally protected some iconic statues was removed to widen the path for construction machines and vehicles to enter the stadium. This left the statues, including the team’s statute of a cockerel standing on a ball, exposed to the elements.

Measuring more than 9 feet tall, the cockerel statue was constructed in 1909 when the soccer team still played at the armature level. The cockerel will join the Tottenham Hotspur clock, another stadium icon, in its new home at Lilywhite House, where it will remain on display for fans to enjoy along with other items from the team’s long history.

The tour took place earlier this year, when the team traveled to Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, and Sydney, Australia, for two friendly football matches and a number of team outings. While in Sydney, Tottenham players visited the iconic Sydney Opera House and the Sydney Harbor Bridge, which displayed the team’s colors in honor of their visit. Later, 4,000 fans attended the team’s open training days before Tottenham’s match against Sydney FC at ANZ Stadium. With over 80,000 fans in attendance, the team achieved a 1-0 win over the Australian club.

The Australian Event Awards later named Tottenham’s local tour as a nominee in its overall events category, along with such events as PAX Australia and the Gold Coast International Marine Expo. In a gala ceremony at Doltone House Jones Bay Wharf, the Australian Event Awards named the team as its winner for Best Achievement in Marketing, Communication, and Sponsorship as well as Best Event.
