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.
