Club Nicknames: The club's nickname is "Spurs" which is clearly a shortened version of 'Hotspur.' One theory of why the club was called Hotspur in the first place is that Sir Henry Percy's family owned a large amount of land around the Tottenham area and his own nickname was 'Harry Hotspur.' They are also called "The Lilywhites" after the colour of their home shirts.

History of Football: Tottenham Hotspur FC
Origins: The club was formed in 1882, as Hotspur F.C. Tottenham F.C. played their first matches at Tottenham Marshes on public pitches, remaining there for six years. It was here that the club first played arch rivals Royal Arsenal in front of increasing crowd sizes – so much so that the club moved to Northumberland Park in 1898 but, also due to crowd attendances for matches against re-named Woolwich Arsenal, had to move again a year later. This time they moved to White Hart Lane which was originally a disused nursery owned by Charringtons, the brewers, and located behind a public house on Tottenham High Road.
