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.
“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.”
