Tottenham Hotspur are on the verge of making a huge step forward as they will know if the Brent Council’s officials back their plan to play their home games at Wembley next season.

Ahead of the meeting of the planning committee on March 23, council officers are expected to deliver their verdict by the middle of next week on the proposal submitted by Wembley National Stadium Limited.

Wembley are looking to increase the number of full-house events next season and Tottenham have the opportunity to submit their proposal to play all their home games at Wembley next season as the construction of their new stadium is already underway. The construction requires the demolition of White Hart Lane as the new stadium is being constructed right next to the Lane.

The stadium will have 61,000 seats, which just slightly overtakes Arsenal’s Emirates stadium and will have the single-tier stand just 5 metres away from the goal line. It has also been said that the single-tier stand will be the largest in the country with 17,000 seats. The numbers are eye-popping and it surely is a massive step taken by the club in their long and illustrious history. The stadium will also have 9 floors, with a lot of unbelievable facilities and it is surely expected to set the mark for a modern football stadium.

Though the council officers’ recommendation is not decisive, it gives a clear indication to the planning committee of their views. It will be one of the factors taken into account by the committee, along with the views of local residents and the potential benefits to the area.

Wembley Stadium

Tottenham have still not confirmed officially where they will play home matches next term, although club staff are working on the basis that they will move to Wembley.

Though Tottenham’s record at Wembley has not been impressive as they struggled in the European competitions this season, Spurs would have not many choices if they do not receive the approval to play their home games at Wembley next season.
