Tottenham Hotspur have made an official announcement that the new plans to increase the capacity of their new ground has been accepted by the local council, and it will now hold 1,299 more fans that Arsenal, which is currently the largest capacity ground in London.
The official announcement said: “We are pleased to announce that Haringey Council has approved our application to increase the capacity of the new stadium,”
“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.”
Obviously their new ground it is not expected to be opened for another year and they will be playing their home games at Wembley next season, where they have not been very successful with their Champions League games this season.
Hopefully they will be just as bad next season in the League and drop back down the table.
There is not much point having that much capacity if you can’t fill it with fans….
