Tottenham Hotspur confirm new stadium plans

Tottenham have confirmed its intention to build a new 60,000-capacity stadium near their current White Hart Lane ground.

In their financial results released to the stock market today, Spurs announced further details of the Northumberland Development Project - a large-scale development incorporating leisure facilities, public space and housing as well as the new stadium.

Chairman Daniel Levy said: "The scheme includes the current site and adjoining land with the stadium sited largely to the north of the existing one.

"We diligently spent considerable time reviewing our options and the news that our supporters had been waiting for came this month when we announced our intention to remain in Tottenham, confirming the Northumberland Development Project - a world class scheme incorporating a new stadium with a capacity of 60,000, a club museum, new shops, restaurants, homes and important public space."

He revealed the club were likely to submit plans next year.

Haringey Council leader George Meehan said: "I am delighted that Tottenham Hotspur has confirmed its commitment to remain in our borough.

"We have always regarded Spurs as one of Haringey's prime assets. They bring major economic benefits to our borough and carry out some excellent community work".

He added: "But, as always, we will consider very carefully any plans that are submitted to us, as we strive to ensure that a new stadium delivers real benefits for all who live and work in the area."
