Tottenham Moving Into New Stadium In 2017

Tottenham have announced that they are hoping to be able to move into a new 56,000 seater stadium by the middle of 2017. The stadium’s construction is expected to begin on the Northumberland Development Project, located next to the club’s current home at White Hart Lane, later this year.

Club chairman Daniel Levy believes it is possible to expect the opening of the new stadium for the 2017-18 campaign. If the stadium is completed, then Tottenham will be among the big clubs having a large stadium with a large stadium capacity, which will also help them in the process of generating more revenue.

If higher profits are been made by the club, then that could mean being able to hold on to their star players and be competitive in the transfer market, also giving them financial strength and helping them built a better fan base.

Levy said:

“We have fantastic, strong support. Our current 36,000 seater stadium sells out and the waiting list of season ticket holders is currently in excess of 47,000.

“We have the smallest capacity stadium of any club in the top 20 clubs in Europe, let alone the current top four Premier League clubs.

“We cannot stress strongly enough how critical the new stadium is over the long term to these raised expectations.”

  1. Its a pipe dream.

    Its mid-2014. If they haven’t released blueprints or 3-d models, they aren’t going to be anywhere near a new stadium for 2017-2018. Look how long it took to build the emirates from deisgn to move in.

    If they had submitted their application for building permits, it would have been big news. And then the city has to approve the plan, along with their proposal for relocating business & residents.

    None of this has happened so far. The only thing that has happened are some tounge in cheek comments from Daniel Levy, who is probably just trying to stay in favor with the fans.

      1. That is not a 3-d model. I’m talking about a model that an architect/engineer would do to submit with the building plan.

        1. They have that, everything is in place. The only thing holding up preceedings are the compulsory purchase orders. In particular a sheet metal work business who are holding out for the price they want. Spurs want to pay 1m under what the owners want.

          Spurs have recently been granted a court order forcing them to sell at their price (which is weak IMO given levy negotiations for players, imagine Madrid got a court order for bale to be sold at 60m instead of 100m).

          Anyways. An example of quick stadium construction, the 49ers “Levi’s Stadium” which took 2 years of building once started. So it’s possible.

          The bigger issue is what the point if you leave a guy who looks and acts more like someone strung out on drugs than a football manager, someone so incapable of controlling his actions he has to sit in the stands & admits he stayed there b/c he “couldn’t influence the game” lol what a muppet.

          I’m sure the levy petition for a vote of no confidence by Spurs fans through is also speeding up announcements to placate the restless natives!

      1. All these years and I never knew it was so small. These days you need around 60,000 just to stay competitive with those around you so I’m a little surprised its taken spurs so long to build another stadium.

  2. Neither one of these applies to Tottenham,
    “We have the smallest capacity stadium of any club in the top 20 clubs in Europe, let alone the current top four Premier League clubs.”

    1. What? They have the 10th largest stadium (in terms of capacity) in the PL… smaller than the current top 4 clubs. They’re not even close in capacity #’s to the top 20 clubs in Europe.

  3. Guys,

    The research on the article is done before it being published, and Mr. Levy’s comments are from those printed on the official websites.

  4. Even when it was all standing it was pretty tight to get in. Wonder what they intend to do with the land the ground sits on, has to be worth a fortune.
