Tottenham Pegs 2017 For Switch From White Hart Lane To New, 56,000-Seat Stadium
Published April 3, 2014
TIME TO MOVE: REUTERS' Josh Reich reported Tottenham "is desperate to replace their current 36,000 capacity White Hart Lane ground with a modern stadium." Levy: "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, and given we now operate within UEFA Financial Fair Play rules, an increased capacity stadium and associated revenues is fundamental to supporting the future ambitions and consistent achievement at the top of the game" (REUTERS, 4/2). The BBC reported the news comes on the day Tottenham "announced a profit" of £1.5M ($2.5M) in its latest financial results. Levy described the new venue -- which would be built as part of a development that would also include the land its current home stands on -- as a "landmark project" which will be a "key regenerative component of the local economy" (BBC, 4/2).
