Tottenham Sweat Over Stadium Plans As Hosting A Full Capacity Wembley Is Still Not Clear

Wembley Stadium

As Tottenham prepare to say goodbye to White Hart Lane, plans are already set for them to move into Wembley for next season before they play in their all new stadium.

Spurs will be looking to make Wembley their home for the next season and make it a fortress such as the Lane this season. The club will also learn if they will be able to use the entire 90,000 capacity for their home games next season.

The Standard reports that the Brent Council’s planning committee will decide if Wembley can host the extra games at full capacity. The green light should be lit for the move as long as the games will be beneficial to the local community and not negatively impact the location.

Wembley has asked for 22 extra full capacity events to be held from 1 August 2017 till 31 July 2018 and that should cover all of Tottenham’s home games for that season.

Although there is no official word from Tottenham stating that this is their last season at White Hart Lane, the club do have an option to make Wembley their home next season and have until 31st March to finalise their decision.

While Spurs will certainly be backed by a vociferous crowd should they play at Wembley next season, their performances this time around haven’t been all that great. Playing in the national stadium for the Champions League campaign saw Tottenham struggle as they were knocked out of the competition.

They were even knocked out of the Europa League but they do have a chance of making things right in the FA Cup where they face rivals Chelsea in the semi-final on 22nd April.

Looking back at White Hart Lane, this season has been spectacular for Tottenham as they look to finish second in the Premier League. In all probability, the last game that the Lane will host is the league game against Manchester United and that will certainly be a great occasion.

Tottenham will hope to move to their new home before the start of the 2018-19 season in a stadium with is expected to hold 61,000. The stadium is being built at a cost of £750 million and should see a lot of great days under Mauricio Pochettino’s charge.
