Tottenham Hotspur have begun work on the proposed new stadium, which is all set to be constructed for around £ 400 million. The current capacity of the Premier league club at the Hart Lane stands at around 35,000, which is nowhere near enough to fill the demand for the seats by the fans.
As a result, Tottenham announced a few months ago that they will be building a brand-new 60,000 seater stadium that will put them on par with the archrivals Arsenal in terms of the stadium capacity. The latest you win odds suggest that they will only move into the stadium in 2016.
The work on the new stadium has begun has revealed by the club’s official website. Once done, the stadium will be one of the kind due to the fact that it will have a number of other alternatives like a commercial space and supermarket apart from the 56,000 seater stadium. The work on the supermarket is expected to begin only in September. The club have placed on the area where the stadium will be constructed. Once Tottenham move into this new stadium, the existing stadium will be demolished and 280 homes will be constructed.
“We continue to work closely with the Mayor and Haringey Council as we look to deliver this major sport-led regeneration in Tottenham,” said a statement on the official website of the club. Once the stadium is completed, a number of other developments will also be undertaken like the tube station. Roads and other public transport will also be improved in and around the stadium. Tottenham hope to recoup much of the spending in the form of the sale from the homes at the existing location.
