Spurs will be moving out of White Hart Lane at the end of the season, but a new stadium will be built in close proximity and an announcement from the club’s website has claimed that the stadium will seat 61,599 spectators.
This just means that the new Tottenham stadium will hold more fans than Arsenal’s Emirates Stadium and also West Ham’s Olympic Stadium.
“We are pleased to announce that Haringey Council has approved our application to increase the capacity of the new stadium,” a statement on the Tottenham website read.
“Improved seating layout design has meant that we have been able to increase seating in several areas of the stadium. This will now see our official capacity rise to a total of 61,559.
“The biggest gain will be in the single-tier South stand, which will now be able to accommodate 17,500 spectators, an increase of 500.
“The new stadium will be the largest capacity football club stadium in London.”
Spurs will be playing their home games at Wembley next season and their last season at the Lane certainly is a memorable one.
The Lilywhites are unbeaten at home this season in the Premier League, which is a great achievement. Although the League dream is pretty much over after the disappointing loss to West Ham, the season is still a great one for the club.
Tottenham will face Manchester United in the last game at White Hart Lane and if we play in the form we have been all season at home, it will be another day to enjoy for the fans.
