Spurs Chairman Reveals New State Of The Art Stadium Plans

Tottenham Hotspur chairman Daniel Levy has revealed the plans for a state of the art 60,0000 capacity stadium, which will be built close to current ground at White Hart Lane.

Spurs have been looking into several options recently, with regards to a new stadium after it became apparent that White Hart Lane was not big enough to cope with the fan base of the North London club.

Tottenham have a waiting list of 22,000 for season tickets at Spurs and a club membership in excess of 70,000, so the need for a bigger stadium to compete with local Premier League rivals Arsenal, who moved from Highbury to the 60,000-seater Emirates Stadium in 2006 is without doubt.

Levy said: “The scheme includes the current site and adjoining land with the stadium sited largely to the north of the existing one.

“With a waiting list for season tickets of over 22,000 and club membership levels of over 70,000, our need for an increased capacity stadium has been clear for all to see for some time.

“We diligently spent considerable time reviewing our options and the news that our supporters had been waiting for came this month when we announced our intention to remain in Tottenham, confirming the Northumberland Development Project - a world class scheme incorporating a new stadium with a capacity of 60,000, a club museum, new shops, restaurants, homes and important public space.”
