Spurs have officially applied to play their Prem games at Wembley

Tottenham Hotspur are moving a step closer to their temporary home Wembley next season and have put forward a planning proposal in a request to utilise 90,000 seats, which would be the biggest-ever Premier League crowd.

The north London club made the remarkable request to Brent council (The Sun), while their new £750 million stadium works are taking place swiftly.

A scheduling document describes the upgrade ‘would allow up to 36 full capacity THFC home games may be played at Wembley during the season with five of these accommodated under the existing event cap.’ At the moment, the stadium’s deal with the local council only permits 37 major events.

If the request does not go Tottenham’s way, then they would be forced to close Wembley’s top tier for most of their games so that the crowd do not increase above 51,000.

If approved, Mauricio Pochettino’s men will be hosting their 19 home Premier league matches with up to 90,000 fans in the stands. Being spurred on by a huge chunk of the crowd, Spurs will be marching in with a double dose of confidence.

They could host up to an additional 17 possible European and domestic trophy matches too, making a grand total of 36 matches at Wembley.

This campaign, though, they endured mixed fortunes in the national stadium. The Lilywhites failed to book a place in the Champions League knockout stage after daunting defeats to Monaco and Bayer Leverkusen. They certainly looked off colours and there were questions arising about their European football credibility. Yet, in their final group tie against CSKA Moscow, they bagged a 3-1 victory and but only nailed down a spot in the Europa League.

At present, Pochettino’s well-oiled team are crushing in the league, in the 3rd spot and 9 points adrift of table-toppers Chelsea. It seems to be an uphill task to leap ahead of Antonio Conte’s side, therefore Spurs will have an eye of a tiger for European glory while hoping other teams put Chelsea off their stride.

As the Premier league action resuming in February, Tottenham will travel to the Stadium of Light to face Sunderland, who are fighting in the basement of the league table.
